As Featured on News Cult: Monogamy: Let’s Discuss

It isn’t that often that onlybadchi gives a post that makes you really think and consider things (she is hilarious and beautiful, but I digress). So when her post spoke of a discussion on monogamy, I figured I was going to be treated to a laughable folly on the subject. The humor is there, count on it, but her points on both sides will make you think and wonder. My take: I want exclusivity in a relationship with someone who wants the same and where we want and love each other. Can that be found? Don’t know, but I intend to keep looking…

The elephant in every relationship: monogamy. When are you going to be “official”? Are you “dating” or just “seeing each other” or merely “hooking up”? WTF do those things even mean? How do you refer to each other when making introductions? “Mom, this is Jack, the… guy I’m occasionally having mediocre sex with?” Or, “Everyone, this is Sarah–I think she’s my girlfriend but that hasn’t been explicitly stated yet so I’m not really sure. I know that I would like her to be, but I don’t know her feelings on the subject.”

To be, or not to be, monogamous–that is the question. It seems like American society and culture overwhelmingly promote monogamy when it comes to marriage, but anything short of that, it’s a free for all. There is no given–just because you’re going on dates with someone, or having sex with them, does not make them your monogamous partner…

      I think we all, deep down, know this to be true whether it should be or not…now, that is a question.

I read lots of books, from mythology retellings to literary fiction and I love to reread books from childhood, this is a place to voice my thoughts for fun. I also like to ramble about things such as art or nature every now and again.
