Monogamy in a relationship, can our generation be monogamous?
Can our generation be in a monogamous relationship?
I wonder if our generation can be in a monogamous relationship for 40 or 50 years like our grandparents? Or are we doomed to never find the forever kind of love? Let's face it; our grandparent’s generation is so different from our own. We are conditioned to be self sufficient and those we need no one but that is a very lonely existence. We depend on no one but ourselves and when we do find that special someone and things get rough, we bail. There is no desire to fight for that love you know you found and will be doubly hard to find a second time. Yet, we don't fight. We think, there are many fish in the sea but we aren't good fisherman and we end up alone for years and years. Anything worth having is worth fighting for yet we let love slip by without giving it our all. Of course, we need to remember that it takes two to fight for love. The grass is never greener on the other side, which is an illusion. You will not find someone better, which is another illusion.
We get one or two real chance at true love and in order to find that someone you can't live without, we need to let these preconceived notions go. So, when you meet someone, don't dismiss them nor neglect them because that person may be your true love and you let it slip through your fingers because you were too busy working or hanging with your boys/girls or just because you were looking for better. Sometimes the woman/man who will make your life better is right in front of you but we are too busy to notice.
