Prompt: Monogamy

I have read a few opinions here and there that monogamy and humankind do not mesh. That we humans were not meant to be monogamous as it is against our nature to actually be so! What is the definition of monogamy?

Monogamy is a form of marriage in which an individual has only one spouse during their lifetime or at any one time, however current usage, monogamy often refers to having one sexual partner irrespective of marriage or reproduction. The term is also applied to the social behavior of some animals, referring to the state of having only one mate at any one time. I’m someone who believes that as we humans have evolved and progressed, it should be noted that the practice of having only sexual partner has seen changes. For current times, in many parts of the world, marriage may not hold the same sacredness & value that it used to hold a generation or two ago. I don’t believe that mankind has to go one way or the other, rather it depends on the individuals themselves as to what kind of sexual life they want to live in. I’ve seen couples, men, women take commitment so lightly and look more for fun and I’ve seen committed & faithful relationships that stand the test of time and whatever life can throw at them.

I’m a bit old fashioned. When I was younger I always thought that I’d meet the right girl, we’d fall in love and that’d be it – until the end of our lives. It hasn’t changed much but I have been in a couple of relationships so I can’t stay true to the original thought. However I crave commitment and I believe in giving my all to just one woman, one person till the end. I find that kind of devotion to each other & faithfulness beautiful even sex and fun. That is the only thing I ask for in a significant other. I’m still waiting. Waiting for the one woman to open up my life.
