How Many Stockings Were Stuffed in Your Home?

I've been meaning to call your attention to this blog entry by Macha, “Saving Marriage: Let's Be Realistic.” It has been several weeks since it was published. It was prompted by a Dan Savage video calling monogamy ridiculous. Macha is monogamous, but is an ally for ethically nonmonogamous.

I agree that monogamy is not superior to non-monogamy, whether we're talking about polyamory, swinging, serial monogamy, or just casual sex. There are many forms of loving, fulfilling, satisfying sexual and non-sexual relationships that people can engage in and be happy.

Great message. Although I enjoy polyamory, I fully support anyone who is monogamous and wants a monogamous relationship. I do think people can be happy and have lasting, monogamous relationships. I like to say that I support the the right of an adult to share love, sex, residence, and marriage with any consenting adults, and that includes monogamy.

Full marriage equality will strengthen marriage. Trying to keep marriage in a small little box that a decreasing percentage of the population is willing to pick up will kill it.

To prevent spam, comments will have to be approved, so your comment may not appear for several hours. Feedback is welcome, including disagreement. I only delete/reject/mark as spam: spam, vulgar or hateful attacks, repeated spouting of bigotry from the same person that does not add to the discussion, and the like. I will not reject comments based on disagreement, but if you don't think consenting adults should be free to love each other, then I do not consent to have you repeatedly spout hate on my blog without adding anything to the discourse.

If you want to write to me privately, then either contact me on Facebook, email me at fullmarriageequality at protonmail dot com, or tell me in your comment that you do NOT want it published. Otherwise, anything you write here is fair game to be used in a subsequent entry. If you want to be anonymous, that is fine.

IT IS OK TO TALK ABOUT SEX IN YOUR COMMENTS, BUT PLEASE CHOOSE YOUR WORDS CAREFULLY AS I WANT THIS BLOG TO BE AS "SAFE FOR WORK" AS POSSIBLE. If your comment includes graphic descriptions of activity involving minors, it's not going to get published.
