Our Masochist Society from Rosamelia's blog

I feel I can't tell anyone in my real-life social circle, specially my relatives, that I'm interested in polygyny. Apparently, our masochist society seems to think monogamous relationships are the ideal, even though in an overwhelming majority of cases it will lead to a host of troubles and eventually separation or divorce. When I began dating, I fully expected to find a monogamous partner, only to discover most guys I dated weren't even single to begin with! Those who were single, albeit dating as many women as possible, turned out to be exceedingly demanding given they dreaded the idea of losing their freedom. My own experience wasn't as bad as some of my female friends though. Tales of doomed dishonest relationships where men pretend to be serious but don't commit long-term and leave a trail of broken hearts and fatherless kids. I myself avoided being a single mother out of being overly cautious and just plain lucky. Those who did tie the knot eventually were faced with the choice of divorcing a cheating husband or turning a blind eye, but feeling resentful and living in a dysfunctional situation for years; if I had a dollar for every couple I know who stays together just for the sake of the kids but puts them through years of trauma from seeing their parents verbally abuse each other all the time. It's so sad frankly, no wonder so many people nowadays prefer to cope with loneliness than go through all that. I don't blame guys exclusively of course, my male friends felt burdened and underappreciated; specially after childbirth when women tend to go from wife to mother-mode and become demanding and socially needy, or so I understand. At this point I must confess I don't know a lot about the male experience, given I'm a heterosexual female. I do know, however, that when I mention perhaps the solution to all this is polygyny, which cures men from sexual frustration and women from social anxiety and loneliness, everyone looks at me as if I was a slut without self-respect. I'm just open-minded and practical! Why insist in monogamy when it so obviously doesn't work?

I have come to realize that those who try and confirm to the way the world views things, will never be content. Only those who are not afraid to plot their own course, even through uncharted waters, create the reality that service them best. I commend you for your view, and its women like you that will change the view of other women to let them see that there is another way to do relationships that may fit them better.I have come to realize that those who try and confirm to the way the world views things, will never be content.
