Society today seems to encourage polyamorosity – you take who you want when you want it, whether it’s three women at the time, or one.
If you choose to be in a monogamous relationship, people almost look down on you because they believe that it is impossible for two people to completely commit to one another. I’d like to think that these views have a lot to do with what the media portrays regarding relationships. Films and series are filled with illicit relationships despite marriages being involved.
Even the youth of today cannot really seem to agree on what kind of relationship they have decided to be involved in.
Young couples have supposedly discussed monogamy, with a supposed agreement being reached. But a study of heterosexual couples found that one partner believed they had agreed to be sexually exclusive while the other believed there was no agreement.
How is this possible? Is it so easy for people to disregard a conversation or confuse the outcome of their discussion on monogamy?
