Why do you think there's such a decline in monogamous relationships?

When dating, men seem to be petrified of the words monogamous relationship and/or commitment. He gets that look as if you've just told him he has six months to live. I know the number of open relationships are on the rise and I also know that some mates agree to it, as a way of keeping the mate that suggested it. If someone I am with wants to be with someone else, more power to him, move along. I do not share (actually I say I do not share my toys and I don't play well with others) I just feel like I am so old fashioned and a minority in my train of thought on this. So tell me, why do you think it is?

    People are more selfish in this day and age. We live in a self-centered society. A bunch of kids that grow into adulthood too fast and don't know how to behave as adults. Our great grand parents were taught... but they taught less to our grandparents...and our parents were taught even less, hence we were taught from public schools, associates, and the media, (movies, TV, magazines, internet, etc.) Society is in a serious moral decline and apathy is at its strongest. Men are becoming less like men and women are becoming less like women, yet some say this is a great thing... that it's a progressive way of life. I'm sorry, but this is the definition of perversion and decadence.

    What is your evidence... is it statistical or experiential?

    Whether this train of thought is on the rise or not is moot. Find somebody who shares your values and stick with him. There's plenty of fish in the sea.

    Alrighty, I'll put this out here then...

    Ideally he'd have intelligence, honesty, independence, morals, respect, a good sense of humor, an open mind, and patience.

    And then we have the physical aspect, which I'll not expand on because it tends to get me hot water.

    I'm picky but nowhere as picky as I use to be when I was younger. Aside from a few very short lived relationships I've been single for almost 12 yrs. Just refuse to settle. I feel like this is a counseling session lol

    It all started with birth control. Women became more sexually liberated by the pill in the 1960's. Now men expect sex from women other than their girlfriend or wife. And there are plenty of women out there to give it to them.

    It's because we live in a "me" society. "Everything revolves around me. What I want & what's going to make ME happy. Forget worrying about another persons feelings, I don't have time for that. If my mate loves me, they will prove it by giving me what I want...an open relationship. If not there are two options, I'm going to do it anyway without them or I'll leave all together."

    Seems while people are in a "committed" relationship they always have an eye outside of the relationship because they feel there is someone or something better out there and the moment they see it, they are bailing.

    I am a one man type of woman. I'm not sharing, which probably plays some part in me still being single. I know there are men who still believe in a one on one, committed relationship....somewhere on this planet, preferably this country lol I just haven't found him. If it means either giving in to this or being single forever, I'll chose the latter. :-)

    The moral decline of our society due to liberal, lackadaisical, and unstructured lifestyles. The media has shoved into the faces of our youth that it's not only acceptable but cool to accept and embrace homosexual lifestyles, multiple partners and a general lack of commitment. We're encouraged, and some are enticed to spice things up by changing partners, and keeping things in their own best interests first, and others second.
    I personally would never be able to share my husband, nor am I even remotely interested in anyone else. I think most people are more happy in relationships that are monogamous.

    Not really sure. Maybe the media is brainwashing people into thinking that monogamy is a bad thing? If you're old fashioned, then so am I. And if today's society continues to decline as it is, then I'm more than happy to be old fashioned.

    A lot of men really enjoy and want to be married. More than women, many times. I'm just not seeing much of an increase in open relationships, as vocal as people into that are.

    As for traditional marriage, some people just don't shape up until someone leaves them, if they ever change at all. People aren't putting up with the abuse like they used too and too many give up too easily. Both are true.
