Is Monogamy In A Marriage Really Healthy For You?

Love, Sex

Swingers are mentally healthier than monogamous couples due to no toxic jealousy and trust.

The type of relationship that one indulges in determines his or her happiness and mental well being in great proportions. Swingers and monogamous peers vary on how they operate by far and this is what determines happiness and mental well being of the partners.

Flexibility—this is the number one factor which influences how well one is in terms of mental well being. Swingers are very flexible in their approach to sex as compared to monogamous peers. As much as many may tend to think that flexibility is a bad thing in relationship, it is worth to note that swingers experience less fear in their relationship.

When talking about mental health, fear is one element which destabilizes it. Because of less fear, swingers are likely to cheat less which adds up to their total mental well being unlike it is with monogamous peers.

Another aspect about fear is that monogamous peers are likely to fall into what is called toxic jealousy. This is where couples fear that some kind of behavior from their peers may lead to some long term affairs thus a threat to their relationship. This kind of toxic jealousy is not experienced by those couples involved in swinging hence a plus to their well being mentally.

Unlike monogamous relationships where parties always lament of the exciting times that they may have missed before settling down, swingers have no such kind of fear. Swingers have all their time to explore which makes them well connected emotionally and deeply in love. The love and connection is not present in monogamous peers hence deprived of good mental health. Swingers have the opportunity to embrace creativity which in the long term makes them happy which may not be possible with monogamous peers.

Sexual appetite is another aspect which determines mental health of couples or peers. In monogamous relationships, one member or partner may have a sexual appetite which the other may not be able to fulfill. Because of this therefore, they are forced to quench their thirst elsewhere and this affects mental health negatively.

Swingers have all the time and space to get needs and sexual appetites satisfied as they are not limited as is the case with monogamous relationships. This kind of infidelity if realized by the other partner, it is likely to cause chaos and even death in some instances. Some people may get stress which may later lead to depression and this will have an impact to the whole family.

In conclusion, swingers are mentally healthier as compared to monogamous peers because of the flexibility, adaptability and creativity that guide their relationships.
