We’re all hearing a lot these days about peoples’ s**uality.
I’m not sure if that’s necessarily a good thing or a bad thing, but it’s kind of hard to avoid right now.
And that brings us to today’s question: what do you think about monogamy?
Here’s what folks had to say on AskReddit.
1. Good point.
“In this economy?
Three incomes is world changing.”
2. One is enough.
“Monogamy is great.
Plus it was enough work to get one person to like me.”
3. Good job.
“I love it.
23 yrs and counting. Still have fantastic s**.
Love my wife. All good in the hood.”
4. Who has the time?
“I honestly don’t understand how people have time to be poly.
Between work, chores, friends, family, social obligations, and time with my partner I literally don’t know where I’d fit in a whole other relationship.”
“Monogamy is good.
I lived next to poly relationship people 1 guy and 2 girls. They were constantly fighting and yelling… Had to call the cops when they broke down their own door.
Cop said usually this type of thing does not end up turning out to well. One person gets jealous eventually because of one reason or another.”
6. Not good.
“I talked to a Saudi friend about the multiple wife deal.
He said it’s bad.
They gang up on you and it’s a constant cat fight.”
7. Busy enough.
“My life is busy already, I don’t have the time left for another partner relationship.
Time spent with that person would have to come from somewhere or more likely someone else who I spend time with.”
8. Good for you!
“It’s worked for the 30 yrs of our marriage.
It’s not for everyone.”
“It’s worked for me for 16 years of marriage…
Across 3 separate marriages.”
10. The only one.
“22 years married and almost 26 in our relationship.
Started at 18 years old.
I’d be lost without my lady.”
11. Good answer.
“I’ve been with my wife for 14 years. That’s my context here before I start.
I don’t think I could do a proper poly relationship. Being one of several people in a relationship with my wife, even if the primary, would require me to be a super balanced secure person, and chief that ain’t me no matter how much I want to be.
So I don’t think polygamous relationships are bad, I just think I would not be good at them.
I guess I’m saying that monogamy may not be my ideal, but I am sure as s**t not cut out for anything else, not even some bullshit fantasy where I am the king and have all these lovely women who only have eyes for me and I get to sleep with all of them, because even my one wife reckons I could be better at being a husband most of the time so I reckon Id be shit at being a husband to more than one.”
12. The best option.
“I’d rather be monogamous than anything else. Getting my wife to like me was frigging hard enough.
We’ve got 2 kids, I’ve got enough people in my life to add another partner into that mix.”
