Sorry, but I have never believed in the concept of “marriage” in the first place. Being the officially sanctioned private sex property of another, being locked away from the rest of the potential partner world, is not a cause of happiness. But a cause of stability? Maybe. But when will people learn that stability does not equate happiness? Death is the most stable thing…
Interesting. I agree with some of what you said. No one is another person’s property.
I see monogamy as a mutual trust in one another. A way to preserve heart issues. I know thats not the same for everyone.
In the case of this marriage, he never told me he didn’t intend to be monogamous. He didn’t want an open marriage. He felt entitled to do what he wanted while controlling the conditions of the marriage. In short it was an abusive relationship.
Thanks for your feedback!
