is being in a relationship nowadays ((in general)) means looking up to unrealistic expectations?
Are monogamous relationships unrealistic?
What Guys Said 31
Monogamous relationships are not unrealistic upon themselves, what's unrealistic is people in general, people nowadays want instant gratification without putting in time or effort, but with people with patients and willing to work out issues together and understand, monogamous relationships work just fine.0
I know many people who have monogamous relationships. Some for a life time as an adult. (they are still alive, so it's still "now days." I also know a number of younger couples who have been monogamous. Those who think monogamous relationship can't work, find they don't work, because being faithful is not important enough to them.0
Nope. I've known people who've done it. All of my siblings have pretty much only ever been with one person and have been happily married to them for a while.0
Sort of yea. There are men that indeed get into monogamous relationships but in reality any man that has aesthetic or has an education or makes good money is unlikely to settle just like that. The problem is that it's pretty easy to find sex overnight if you're one of these guys so there's no real reason to commit.

no i don't think it's unrealistic. plenty of people practice monogamy0
I wouldn't say unrealistic, but it's harder to sustain than most people realize. There are a lot more sexless marriages than most unmarried people realize.0
Only if you’re with the wrong person. Or if you’re the type who cannot be loyal.0
In today's current dating environment, they're definitely a lot harder than they've ever been before. "Sexual liberation" has benefited men more than women. Why commit to a single woman when there's so many others that will give what she wants you to pay for out for free. And men have fewer consequences in sex than women do.0
not at all
though, many in this age do not know how to deal with all the demands of a long term relationship0
No, it's called a good marriage. It's rare, but it's not unrealistic.1
It wasn't unrealistic until some nutheads convinced people that being with one person is has been and boring.
Well maybe I'm boring, but my heart belong to one person, not 2.0
They're realistic alright, but definitely not the only way. Especially if one of two people thinks otherwise and has trouble with it.
Let alone people who preach monogamy and then cheat.0
no its not.
im a monogamous person and i love monogamy0
No it is still my preference.0
Most people go into relationships with unrealistic expectations. That's why they don't last0
They are rare. But you can always hope for one.1
Yes... although ideal for some, stupid for others0
Just because you can hold many beers doesent mean you can Drink them all at once.0
I think our civilizations are based on it so I dont think its gonna go away any time soon.0
No. Monogamy is great.0
Not at all, you get so much passion from a single partner.0
No, not if it’s serious0
the world has forgotten GOD
they have thrown away the moral law giver so they have no morals
they worship the creature more then the creator
and they changed their lust women and women, men and men working lust together
and they will one day receiver their error which will be meet2
During the age of sexual liberation? Of course.0

I haven't had difficulty maintaining a monogamous relationship. If both partners value monogamy, I don't see a problem. Of course, I live in a country where polygamy is very much frowned upon, and most people look for a monogamous relationship anyway. Makes it easier.0
I don't think it's unrealistic at all. It's becoming more common to explore options other than monogamy, but that doesn't man monogamy is going out of style. I think there will always be plenty of people who prefer a monogamous relationship.0
No, I don't believe so.0
no, if i'm not sure about the other person putting in the same effort i am along with loyalty, then i wouldn't be with that person. if you both put in the same amount of effort, of course the shit is realistic for the two involved. just because most people fuck around doesn't mean all do0
They are realistic. Example my grandparent have been married for over 60 years and they still are...
You will see that it's realistic when you have met the right person.1
I used to think that until I met my fiancé. Now I think monogamous relationships are realistic.0
I have been involved in various forms of polyamorous and open relationships for the last 10 years. I think it fits my life better, as I'm hard to tie down, but, it may not be for everyone.0
people should wait for the right one0
Maybe to some but other thrive on those.
I am a jealous bitch so I know I won't be good in a poly.0
well I do believe monogamous is real and nothing better when committed with one person who always besides you.0
No. I've been in the same relationship for 8 years. We've been married since 19 going on 20. Still very happy. I'm pregnant with our second child. Never had any betrayals between us, such as cheating.
Whats hard to come by today for most people I know, is people having the same morals and expectations in common with their partner. Everyone is lazy and never satisfied. As soon as a relationship gets hard or isn't all butterflies and chills with every single touch anymore they think the relationship isn't worth it or they panic and ruin what they have.
Well... Not being monogamous is unusual to me.
But no. Its not unrealistic expectations to want a relationship.0
