Definitely not polygomy. Been there and just far too hard.
Definitely not monogomous. Been there and its false.
How about polyfidelitous. Definitely.

I just wanted to know others point of views. And yes it is a lifestyle that is working for me. Its not for everybody; You may find it ridiculous or the other way around for a woman too have more than one husband but it isn't anyone's judgement to call. As I said before its what makes you happy. I don't have to defend it because I'm not putting anyone's' opinion down. I want negative and positive feedback. But you got a good point people having no guilty feelings of being with another person but all of that has to start with FRIENDSHIP.first. And the only time he or she should feel guilty if the other person doesn't know about the other.


I appreciate your comment. Shawnn Thanks.

So,
Alexandria, what is the point of this question?

You provide counter points to each point one makes, but it seems that you may be defending a life style decision that you made for yourself. If you made a decision to be in a polygamous relationship, so be it.

I still think its a ridiculous way for men to have multiple partners and shrug off any guilty feelings.

Excellent point-a-views Rachael. FYI STI would only be transmitted if the partners aren't honest with each other. Jealous is evil; it can cause people to kill another. So its completely understandable why you would prefer monogamy. All the fighting and argument is a lot to handle and may not seem worth it but it all depends on the love you have (for him or her or them) :)

Thanks for your post Rachael!

I would choose monogamy at this point. I just don't think I could get over my jealousy of knowing my husband is sleeping with other women. I also think that it increases the risk of getting STI's and in the event of pregnancy I wouldn't know who the father is. I think monogamy works great because you know who your children's father is and there is less risk of getting STI's and less jealousy involved, which may end up breaking up the relationship. Pros for polygamy are more people to pay the bills and help with housework, cooking and childcare and also it might be more exciting to sleep with more than 1 partner cuz of the differences

Respectful answer. I see your thought and why you feel that way but what if its not about the sex. You know how some people marry for Money, Reputation, Judgement and even Betrayal,.? What about the benefits? Having three or more incomes is better than two, One can stay at home as the housewife(or stay at home-dad) and the other two (or more) can work (or,and) go to school,.. rotate in and out so nobody gets too bored or tired of doing one thing. Love is there a lot of love to go around and making a big family..its more than just sex and whatever else that seems negative towards poly. Give what you doin' have too your (future) little ones.

(My opinion as well) but I can see both pros and cons in both marriages(poly and mono) its just what works for you and makes you happy. Thanks for your post Shawnn :-)

I would NEVER consider a polygamous relationship. What a way for a pervert to shine, though, really.

In my opinion, women who consent to such have little self esteem. ITS MY OPINION.

When times were such that it was considered the norm to take in a widowed woman and blend her and any children into your home, that's one thing. But for one man to take many wives is selfish. It is perverted. It is not necessary.

My husband is MY HUSBAND. He doesn't need 2 or 3 or 5 women to make him feel like a 'man'.
