Family structure 50 years from now will probably include groups like this.
Ya thats the thing its not really a social taboo if its actually a pretty common thing. And many people already practice it, though they dont call
it anything. In fact i would say that monogamy is an uncommon thing. Most of it just seems to be human inclination of having a go ahead or label
from a higher authority to go ahead, the thing you call society is for children who must have permission from an idol before doing what they will go
ahead and do anyways.
So in reality what your saying is, we want to be able to have a label for something which we are doing already and will continue to do so. The OP
said it herself she has rarely seen relationships if at all were monogamy was involved or worked or at least not for any length of time. Well all
that means is just what she wants already exists because her and the people around her have been practicing it forever, yet is not labeled as
appropriate, and that seems to exist only in her and some peoples minds. Confusing no.
It really is like a creature who must always have to Ok and thumbs up, from the higher ups to do something. They want the playground built because its
just to much work to do it themselves, or more likely they want the crap and litter to be removed from the playground so they can go ahead and get
back to what they were doing.
Literately a childish thing to do. The way I look at it not many people would not be capable of being in a
monogamous relationship, and if you have to contentiously struggle at it you should quit right now and move on, and of those that are its still a lot
of work. And if it ever was forced on them, it was only by them. The fact that it was done and actually worked by such methods just speaks volumes
about how different some people are. In fact in some cases such as mine, we may as well be different species.
So yes let me rephrase what you said into reality speak.
I have always felt that plyamory is a group marriage culture which is pretty normal. I think it works because people have been doing it for ever and
is a fairly common thing which people do. Family structures now include polymory, the divorce rates and TV and radio shows about cheating spouses
alone speak for that. And in 50 years it will be more of the same.
Ok now if you said that it would make sense, as it would reflect the world around you and a majority of people world, and it seems to be especially
true in the OP's world. So I just got to ask. Whats the big deal? Can anybody list the reasons down, number them and explain in detail what the
problem is? Free will and all, do as though wilt, the majority if not all of the worlds problems dont stem from people not having free will, but from
having to fact the consequences of there free will and the decisions they made.
This thing like many others is a non issue.
