    love isn't
    lust is...
    when two someones are truly in is easier to be takes work to keep the love in a relationship...when one of the parties or both stop putting forth the effort it takes to keep love alive and well, then the temptation to stray will creep in...

    Great Question!!!  I also believe that wanting your cake and desiring to eat it too curses "Love".  What makes this more repulsive and sad is when certain folk are given the gift to "Love" or be "Loved", they usually don't understand the power of it (over all) until it's gone

    To be honest, the times i fell in love are the only times i've been faithful. Back then i had "relationships" but my guess is that all i wanted then was companionship and probably shallow things and someone to go to events or concerts. I had 2 serious relationships and presently one that i consider my greatest loves.

    Being in love means for exclusivity, you can't see yourself with other people other than your special someone. Your life evolves around him because you're in love with this person. You'd do anything to make it work.

    Monogamy is just one added credit for a successful relationship, there are others that constitute to it. To me, it is the easiest thing to do. I'm in love with the most wonderful person in the world, that's what matters

    It depends on what type of person you are.  I personally enjoy monogamy and wouldn't have it any other way.

    True love isn't. Why would it be?  Love between two people is something that grows with intimacy and the history they share over time.  Struggles, good times, even daily mundane things all contribute to that wonderful feeling of being home when you are together.

    After    30 years with the same man..............I think not...............

    I can not think of another, in my wildest imagination, who would rescue puppies from under the house, repair water pipes, move washing machines, change my oil or tires..............

    There is no other man who shares the pains and joys of rearing my family.

    After all of this time together ( and some times, we have been at odds and stalemates).............there is no single other one, who has shared my fears, doubts, struggles, hopes..............there just is no other partner who shares my history of joy and failures.   No other partner has dared to walk through the fire with me.    How could I possibly discount that?

    Personally, I believe the human race was not meant to be monogamous, man wasn't meant to mate with just one partner. That said, my husband is all the man I need. Monogamy is a state of mind and in my mind, promiscuity is physically repulsive. I won't go into details as to why, I don't want to offend anyone, but suffice to say I find the physical aspect of promiscuity to be filthy.

    If someone is in a committed relationship yet is promiscuous, there is no love there. If you truly are IN love with someone, they are all you need. But if you love someone, there is always the possibility for roaming. There's a difference between being IN love with someone, and simply loving them.

    Love is never a curse.  If one got disdain for being in love with only one person and wants to say that monogamy is a curse to love, then that person is not in love.  That person wants to burn the midnight oil for an example and then expects to get up in time for work.  There is a certain amount of respect and honor that makes for a long term relationship and if one partner has to include someone else in the relationship then some rethinking got to be done.  It is not love that is cursed but the relationship because most likely unless there is an irrational  understanding  about what a relationship means, the relationship would sizzle.  What would be holding the relationship together if not for love?

    Hmmm...there is a difference between love and marriage - so I am assuming you mean love without marriage? Monogamy is do-able..Vanilla-ism is not..
