Obviously Seeking Some Reaction Or Rise Out of People
All you will get is an eyeroll and confirmation of your narcissism
This family has been in constant rotation of the news lately. People are entitled to their own ideas of consenting relationships and how they achieve happiness in their own way without the infringement or provocation to others in the process. By the way this is in fact how polyamory works.
However, it is important to note one distinction about polyamory and that is that it is not the same as promiscuity. That is where the censure — right or wrong — comes in. If you think monogamy is a lot of work then polygamy is a multiplication of that work. Considering thoughtfulness, intimate and sexual exclusivity, respect and trust, along with the forethought of familial responsibility is now mutually inclusive to all involved in the relationship.
A relationship is often predicated on the confidence you get from establishing a some degree and scope of trust and validation of not just worthiness but also attractiveness.
While a series of monogamous relationships also denotes a degree of experience it is often unfairly perceived as something shameful when the odds of a near perfect match on initial attempts are impractical to be fairytail-like possible. But with social pressures abound most just settle and learn to love, respect, and trust their partner over time. And that may work for better or for worse. It is rather presumptious to see the inconsistency of being in a number of monogamous relationships as past failures or mistakes.
We tend to evolve in relationships that oftentimes challenge our perceptions, ideas, and tolerance. Yes, especially tolerance. Love is dynamic and can have many layers; its important that we don’t lead with the relationship simply based on the compass of love only with its multidirectional paths. Love is all over the place, literally and figuratively.
Polyamory is something of the sort. Its basis is love and it is compounded by the multitude of emotions from more than one partner which calls for some intense time management. Polyamory seems to work well in the short to medium run. The regrets or contents of such has not been documented sufficiently to make a proper assessment.
Every society has this cultural moment on the topic whether it be a reckoning or an embrace to its understanding. I am concerned about its cultural misuses as a vanity project which I suspect in the psuedo profound case captioned above is observingly about.
Just my thoughts.
