Polygamy

2 years ago

I am open to thinking about it, but society just makes it seem completely absurd. Thinking about it makes my thoughts obscure, and has made me question my beliefs about love. I think it would be great if all parties involved were comfortable, but it just seems so complicated and unrealistic. I just can’t imagine our world with it as a common practice.

My concern is that I am in a relationship, but there are so many people out there to connect with. I suppose I can connect with them, but not at a sexually intimate level, which I think I am ok with.

I’d love to hear some thoughts on this matter though.

I don’t believe that we should limit ourselves to being with only one person. I believe people evolve over time, and you must be in many different relationships over time to do this. I don’t think that staying with one person you can accomplish why you came to earth.
Just my beliefs though.

Monogamy is bullshit, it limits your freedom, which in term brings you further from your nature.
If you truely love each other’s true nature, you allow each other to do whether each wants, otherwise you are with each other out of insecurity to be alone.

@livelifeloving, and what if what each wants is just each other?

@tangledupinplaid21,

In the context of the topic, then there still isn’t the need to declare your relationship, because it is then natural that you choose each other and natural that you don’t choose another.

If you are asking for my personal opinion, you are asking the wrong question, since I already told you that monogamy is bullshit. Therefore I don’t believe in only wanting one other human being, you will deny therest of all other life, which could potentially have made you feel ‘better’ than the person you are obsessed with.

@livelifeloving, Hmmm… so what’s it like being the authority on what is and isn’t needed in others’ personal relationships?

;) Perhaps a one size fits all rule doesn’t quite fit here? Or anywhere else for that matter.

@tangledupinplaid21,

You ask me a question, I give you my answer, if you can’t deal with my opinion, don’t ask for it.
Again, you ask me the wrong question: “so what’s it like being the authority on what is and isn’t needed in others’ personal relationships?”
As here you try to imply that I feel like I am the authority on what is and what isn’t needed in others’ personal relationships, as I never said that I am the authority on what is and isn’t needed in others’ personal relationships.

The thing that you must understand is that opinions are always personal and one size never fits all rule. What a truth is for me is a lie to you.

Why does your (and other’s) picture change by the why, first it was a picture of a girl and now of a vividly coloured tree?

@livelifeloving, Fair point.
That’s a weird glitch on HE… People’s avatars switch back and forth. One of those is my face and the other is what I consider one of my best paintings.

I think really intimate sex with someone you are beginning to grow strong feelings for can be very intense and satisfying but there’s no denying that the spark does not stay there forever.
