You say it yourself, it depends on the culture. In poor countries family ties are extremely important, and even with arranged marriages the partners often stay together for life even when it wasn't love that united them or when they can't really stand each other. But that doesn't mean long term mon...

From my observations humans are not inherently long term monogamous. I don't know where exactly you live but my observations are different. Both my parents and my husband's parents have been together for over 40 years, no signs it would ever change. In their generation even those who didn't marry f...

Monogamy is not necessarily long term monogamy.  Why should it not happen that a relationship is monogamous for say half a year?  It is long term monogamy that I can't wrap my head around.  That is what I have written. Do the men you date know that you will eventually dump them? I don't wait to dum...

In evolutionary time, those are things that developed fractions of a second ago. Also: Not that monogamy is unnatural, but I think for the long term (10 years for example) I personally in my opinion find monogamy unnatural. "I'm not saying it is, but I'm saying that in my opinion, it is"?...

Evolutionarily, humans have moved away from being a tournament species and towards being a pair-bonding species, though a not-yet complete transition probably accounts for us being a bit of a mess in that department (as in so many others). Now that women are not financially dependend on men, and si...

Long term exclusive monogamous relationships. The way I see it they last because of socio-cultural norms that morally forbid someone to find a new sexual partner even after numerous years and even though both partners actually want to have sex outside the relationship, which would be the more natura...

When considering long term relationships, the "beauty contest" is quite a myth. I have a lot of male friends and I know that once the girl looks generally healthy, most of them are content with looks and interested more in various aspects of compatibility. My mother used to tell me that w...

In many cultures humans use some form of body modification, painting skin, tattooing, piercing. It is normal to decorate the body. I think when it would establish itself as the norm to wear no make up at all, then one woman after another would notice, when she applies make up (or engages in some oth...

It's a cultural thing that women have to put in a lot of effort while men just have to take care of basic hygiene and such to be said to look good. However, if enough women put their foot down and just look the way they feel comfortable with (without looking messy or indecent), expectations will sl...

Has anyone ever been told that they're unworthy of love, due to physical or mental disabilities? illness? Looks? I believe that love is for everyone and yet,people have superficial ideas on what love is based on or whom deserves love or whom doesn't. Yes No women will date me :( I’m Worthless trash...

Everybody is worthy of love.....except thrill murderers and sexual predators. They are worthy of love too. Because there are people who love them and everyone can love who they love. Ugly people and people with unpleasant character traits are loved too. Of course those traits make it harder and les...

Are you ok with not having children? Do you consider it possible that he would change his mind one day? I don't want to ever marry, but I understand your fears about the ceremony. I would have the same fears plus I wouldn't even have anybody to invite which would make me look even weirder. It is goo...

I see the next door neighbors kid who has a crappy minimum wage job moved out at about 21-22 and can only shake my head as to what a fool he is. It isn't always foolishness. Not all people want to have a house or want a big saving and therefore are willing to spend another 10+ years living with the...

I just turned 30 and really feel like I am at a crossroads in my life. I am at the age where people are really starting to settle down and have families, and can't help but feel that to do so is our biological imperative. I am unsure as to whether or not it is wise for me to reproduce and potential...

The major problem is that I often get mixed up with what I want. Thankfully he's not on this forum but there's times when we are intimate and I have a massive desire to have a baby but then it goes when we finish If you aren't sure, you shouldn't do it. If you have mixed feelings about marriage don...
