Thrashing out the details of their new marriage contract with online relationship coach Suzie Johnson, the wealthy couple who have been wed for 12 years leave their hourlong Skype session feeling satisfied.
The husband agrees they can have a fifth child — while the wife consents to an infidelity clause allowing him to cheat with other women on a strictly annual basis.
“They agreed to a weekend amnesty, where the guy can do what he wants for just one weekend a year,” recalls Johnson, who runs the Dallas, Texas-based goasksuzie.com. “In return, she gets the bigger family she craved.”
In 2016 marriage counselors were facilitating
We had moved towards a polyamourous society where having more than one mate was socially acceptable as a way of dealing with rampant pornography addiction plaguing modern day western civilization where anal sex among teens was now commonplace and where children starting watching porn at the ages 11 and above on their parent sponsored and provided mobile phones.
Technology was the real dilemna; it was the key to our productivity and the double edged sword that also took away our humanity and our jobs and our livelihoods.
First let us deal with the basic terms.
People who identify as polyamorous typically reject the view that sexual and relational exclusivity are necessary for deep, committed, long-term loving relationships.
Polyandry is contrasted with polygyny, involving one male and two or more females. If a marriage involves a plural number of “husbands and wives” participants of each gender, then it can be called polyamory, group or conjoint marriage.
Of the 1,231 societies listed in the 1980 Ethnographic Atlas, 186 were found to be monogamous; 453 had occasional polygyny; 588 had more frequent polygyny; and 4 had polyandry.
Polygyny is a form of plural marriage in which a man is allowed more than one wife.
What was the essential difference between allowing a husband to cheat once a year and allowing the same husband to allow him to take another wife and allow all the children not be labelled as bastards or illegitimate and be an legal married relationship? If we do down that route then the Muslims had it right in reality. They allowed up to 4 wives and set limits on such relationships and codified it in their religions.
The Roman Catholics were allowing divorces in 2016 under a Papal decree so who was more progressive in their approach?
What was progress and what was unacceptable? What was the Feminist Revolution and what were its truly its achievements? More single parents and the end of men was the result when the basic family structure was broken and not allowed to be functional.
These are issues we rarely want to admit to or accept and denial was one of the first reactions as we sailed down the river. What was more progressive allowing multiple husbands or multiple wives when we know that the male female ratio was not equal and far more women existed who also lived longer than men and given those facts the most practical response has to be the one we have been programmed to vilify all these years; how bizarre?
