Welcome Back! After a decade, not for you but for me its been a decade, was busy with exams.
OK’ Coming back to MONOGAMY.
Monogamy is a tricky thing. I don’t think it’s for everyone, but I’ve chosen that life, and there’s no question in my relationship.
Trust is essential to relationships. Many will say that by being with other people, you are breaking that trust.
However, that misses the point entirely.
Betrayal and dishonesty is precisely what a mutual, consensual nonmonogamous relationship can look like and is based on; such relationships precisely attempt to avoid and undermine betrayal and dishonesty. By being open about your sexual needs, you can articulate what those needs are to your partner, improving your life, your partner’s life and, therefore, your relationship.
“People in these relationships really communicate. They communicate to death. They’re talking a lot, they’re negotiating a lot, they’re bringing their feelings to the table a lot.”
I was always anti-marriage. Didn’t understand monogamy. I couldn’t figure out how that could last. And then I met Champa and I started to understand the beauty of constancy and history and change and going on the roller coaster with someone – of having a partner in life.
I think monogamy is a little unnatural, if I’m totally honest. You change. Things alter. It’s the exception rather than the rule and I think it’s exceptional to cope with it and manage it. It’s hard work.
Take the phone off the hook, close the curtains, dim the lights and get ready for the steamiest evening you’ll ever have…
