Do You Believe In Monogamy?


Is there such thing as love for life, or are we all chasing an impossible dream?

Some people believe monogamy is very closely related to monotony. How do YOU feel about it?

I’d like to talk about monogamy today. Do you truly believe two people can satisfy each other sexually and emotionally for an extended period of time?

We're not talking six months, or a year. We're talking a long time, like 10 years or more. Do you believe that two people are meant to be together forever sexually and emotionally, and do you feel that people can actually grow day in and day out with each other?

Today, I would like to hear from all of you. I'd like to know about your experience with monogamous relationships and I'd love to read your stories about people who have been successful in monogamous relationships. Some of you may know my longest relationship was five years. Obviously, at my age, I'm open to monogamy, totally.  But I don't know if it would work for me, because it hasn't worked before. Does it work in later years, when as a man you’re not looking to plant your seed everywhere? 

It's funny; as I get older, I have less excitement about sleeping with lots of women, and more excitement of just having peace and love in my life. 

So probably if there's any time in my life that I'm ready for a monogamous relationship, it's now more than ever before. Before I wanted a monogamous relationship, but could never seem to have one.  It didn't mean that I cheated or slept around, I wasn't able to give the emotional commitment. It's really an interesting thing to talk about is monogamy.

So today, let's dive deep into monogamy: your experience with it, how it works, do you think it's meant to work even though we're one of the few primal being on this planet that actually practice monogamy?

And if monogamy doesn't work, what do you think is the new norm? 

I'm starting to see a lot of people who have multiple relationships throughout their life, and are fully accepting. No longer the ‘death do you part’ syndrome that we have had engrained in us. I've met people who have had beautiful monogamous relationships for 60 or 70 years.  But how many people do you know actually have that type of relationship?

Are we all just chasing a dream, something that doesn't exist anymore?  I look forward to hearing from you today on a very passionate subject.
