Monogamy Is A Myth

Over the past couple of months I have been increasingly skeptical of the whole concept of eternal monogamy that was the basis of my early understanding of relationships. While the whole concept is certainly a romantically appealing one, I find it hard to believe that every person on the planet is destined to find the complete complement to their life and spend the rest of their time on earth with that one person. As the whole concept of marriage has evolved, I understand that there are progressive couples out there who separate the emotional commitment that they share with a partner from the physical needs that every person desires to fulfill. I think it is probably a basic truth that as people get older, their personalities necessarily change, and along with those changes come different needs. Unless the other person changes at the same rate, then there is an unbalanced relationship that creates unhappiness. Not to even mention how genetics/evolution affects our relationships.

With a majority of the “religious” society out there still frowning on divorce, it forces those who adhere to their religious tenets to remain in unhappy relationships rather than seek fulfillment that their evolved personality requires. I think it is a much more realistic approach to understand that over the course of a lifetime it is only natural that a person be involved in numerous relationships that fulfill them in various ways. That is not diminishing each individual relationship’s importance, either. Maybe if we start approaching this reality, things will look up as far as relationship happiness.
