Do you believe that love and monogamy last forever, never wanting another the rest of your life?


Does love last forever and does that include monogamy in a marriage for a lifetime? Can a person commit to never wanting another (or should I say conceding to another) for the rest of their lives, or does that just sound a little unrealistic? Have you been in a monogamous relationship or marriage for many years and how do you make it work?

    You are definitely right about the ups and downs, and give and take. I think part of the problem with relationships is not being willing to do just that.

    People today act like airheads when it comes to relationships. They want devotion but aren't expecting to give the same. I know women and men online who list their needs and don't consider what a partner needs at all.

    I knew before I read your profile you were a therapist and one with incredible insight into relationships. I read a couple of your hubs and they are sensational. I can only imagine how well in tuned you are as a therapist and great answer.

    Huge difference between wanting another and acting on it no matter how small the gesture. Good answer

    I love the idea of "something " different not someone different. Great thought.

    Most folks fear true communication, for it points to intimacy. Trust is an outcome to intimacy, not a precursor.

    Wow I think you wrapped it up in a nut shell, and there is no doubt when reading your hubs and poetry that your love and devotion is immeasurable, along with unbreakable. Which is probably why it's lasted 11 yrs Congrats.

    Lust and love what seems to be so close, yet light years in difference. I agree about the far stretch, but I think it could happen a lot more often if people just worked at it.

    I agree that it definitely has to be the one and think sometimes people rush into lust thinking it's love. Great answer.
