Do you think marriages were meant to be monogamous?


Whether you have this belief from religion, moral or whatever; do think it is reasonable to believe marriages should last a lifetime?

    Yes it is sad John but it is a wonderful accomplishment for the ones who possess such a dedicated will; for marriage can be a rocky road at times and for ones it is not then just a simple miracle. Thank you for contributing.

    Thank you Sparklea; I am pleased many found it of interest. You gave a wonderful answer and a biblical one in my opinion; I cannot fathom the idea of sex dating and really that is all it is in most case knowing there will be no marriage.

    You could become a nun. Thats what I use to tell my mom I wanted to be if I wasn't a ballerina dancer or I could be nothing just like her! She loved to tell that one on me.

    I am sure your mom raised you as mine did me. Just one.

    Well I would say your experience proves monogamy can and does work. An upset in the middle doesn't mean it has to end and you have proven that too.

    There was really only one question and if no is your answer that is you choice. No one here is discriminating that I can see and I have blocked no answers from anyone. Just a friendly discussion among fellow hubbers.
