False Fidelity

I sometimes wonder if the institute of marriage, monogamy, life-long commitment, is all a rouse. Created by a Puritan society who fled in fear from the free thinking Europeans.
I won’t dispute that life long love is definitely achievable. But to say one can to it flawlessly without any wrong doing seems not only difficult but damn near impossible.
Both men and women are constantly found messaging other people, sleeping with other people. And I don’t think they’re doing it to necessarily hurt the other person.
It’s like we can’t help but indulge in what’s wrong, or what’s different, what perhaps might not belong to us. But to hold it for a moment even is enough.
I’ve never been the greedy lover. I was always the selfish, jealous lover.

Now I’m the “I give up” lover.
Why fight for commitment when it seems like such a joke? It looks like another renaissance is upon us.

Sin is in.

    I’ve never found fidelity difficult. I don’t think that my mother or grandmother did either. Polyamory is like free love of the 1960s, it was supposed to free women and it didn’t, it just have us less security than before. Birth control did the opposite. So not all freedom makes you more free. Or free isn’t all it’s cracked up to be. We are meant to form bonds.

    Sin is in ONLY IF you subscribe to it. That’s not a club I’ve ever been a member of…the infidelity club.

    Just be sure to use condoms.
