An incredibly important component of our lives is a romantic relationship and one of the aspects of polyamory is that the more comfortable and honest we can be with our partners, the happier we are.
The chance to be honest with your partner and stay happy in the relationship is a very valuable thing that we as members of the modern society are lucky to experience.“Termed “The New Monogamy” in the journal Psychotherapy Networker, is a type of polyamory in which the goal is to have one long-standing relationship and a willingness to openly acknowledge that the long-standing relationship might not meet each partner’s emotional and sexual needs for all time,” according to Rolling Stone.
The fundamental difference between swinging and polyamory are as follows: Swinging is for couples seeking sex, and just sex, with multiple partners.
Polyamory is for couples who seek multiple loving and interconnected relationships.
We all want to be creative and experimental in every aspect of our lives.This is a continuation of my last article, “Are You Bored with Monogamy?” where I discussed swinging as one option for open relationships.Anapol told me that she believes polyamory is about allowing the truth of the relationship to define the form it takes, rather than some traditional and unexamined idea of what a committed relationship should look like.“If people are consciously monogamy they will be much more satisfied than if they are doing it just because their parents or our society has deemed monogamy the only way to live”, says Anapol. Unfortunately, monogamy is not seen as a choice in our society, but more of a mandate.Just because it’s not traditional doesn’t automatically mean that it’s wrong or immoral.These individuals are in committed loving relationships and don’t deserve to be persecuted because of ignorance and the public’s unwillingness to accept change.Societal norms and values are always evolving, which makes it harder to keep up with the progress.Everybody has the right to have their relationships the way they want it.But regardless of your views on monogamy or really, serial monogamy, which is what most of us practice in today’s society, I think we all have much to learn from the concept of polyamory. Anapol describes her first book as a manifesto for those who had newly discovered they were polyamorous.She says that her latest book, while beneficial for anyone who practices polyamory, is also beneficial for anyone who has questions about the lifestyle.
