monogamy

Do you think we, as human beings yet, no more than animals with a supposed larger brain than most animals, are really supposed to be monogamous?
I mean, really.
You and me with one person forever and ever until death, amen, monogamous?
If you think yes, then what about those who are divorced? I mean, ultimately they will be out on the prowl again as soon as they are ready to get back in the saddle.
Those who are married still very much look, gesture, speculate, daydream, and imagine what it would be like to be with someone else. Sure, they may go home to their wife, husband, boyfriend, girlfriend, yet, the image, daydream that made them grit their teeth of whatever fantasy it just was that went through their head, is still there.

So, are we really supposed to be monogamous? Forever and ever, amen?

I don't think there is just ONE person for every one. I think we have several "matches". I am lucky that I FINALLY find the man that I can't live without. He's my THIRD husband (1st was a misogynistic wife beater, 2nd was a closeted man who had UNUSUAL tastes). So I got it right finally....I was so worried that I would be a serial marrier.

But I do know that if my husband were gone, I think I could find someone who matched me. I just don't think I would ever WANT to again.

Not me, babe. For I am the human honey bee, and I'm looking to pollinate. Let's get all sticky and powdery, my little buttercup.

No, wait. I'm listening to The Rolling Stones, and I want to change my answer. I am the human dandelion, and I want to be blown in the wind, scattering my seed in all directions.

If you deconstruct the word "monogamy", you get "mono", meaning "one" and "gamy", meaning "leggy".

Therefore, it is my humble opinion that humankind was not inherently designed to be one-legged.

The corollary is true for "polygamy".

Okay, so I'm retarded, tonight.

Humm...good question. Back in the day of being a nun I would say I agree with the stipulation that we are monogamous by nature. Now I think that we "should be" monogamous based on my own selfish being and inability to cope with being cheated on. The next step up, "swingging" just grosses me out. So...here I go being my usual undecisive self. Cuz in reality I'm a gemini...by nature we are the zodiac's flukiest sign. Nuff said.

GG - You're a Gemini too? We should double-date sometime!

sb: Just one? I don't know that I believe that.
One to fit where I am whereever I am in it at the time in my life? Yes.

P: Pollination is fun. Just as long as there isn't any fertilization.

OMC: The short bus is here for you.

*wink*

GG: Cheating is bad.
Cheating sucks.
Cheating hurts.

My feelings on swinging.

That's for another day.
Er, post.


P: That hurts.
