3 reasons monogamy is losing the sex battleLifestyle The List
Are we meant to be with just one person? It's a question old as monogamy. Donna Ruko enlisted two sex experts Shannon Boodram and Dr. Chris Donaghue to weigh in on consensual non-monogamy trend that is gaining momentum.
1. More Are Non-Monogamous
We're living for such long periods of time that we're seeing it's really hard to just being with one person for 20, 30, 40, 50 years. Millennials aren't living the standard life anymore. They have non-conventional lifestyles that are why we see a rise in non-conventional relationships. Social media has given people access to roll models, templates and resources where they can learn about how to do non-monogamy.
2. Relationship Isn’t Failing
It's because your relationship has so much strength and such an awesome foundation that you're in a place to be able to pull this off. It's about doing it in a way where it nourishes and supports your primary relationship. If it makes you a more full and vibrant then these relationships can be great because when you are stronger, your relationship or marriage is stronger.
3. Stigmas Aren’t Necessarily True
The curiosity leads to a lot of questions, but hopefully those questions lead to acceptance. If you're a healthy person and you're willing to put the work in, and work on the communication skills, then it could be something very beneficial to a relationship.
