Are Some People Really “Polyamorous” or Just Plain Greedy?

1. Myth: The main goal of dating for most people is to eventually find the person they will marry. Fact: Dating is a social practice that allows people to interact and get to know one another; marriage is not always the intended goal. Marriage is not necessarily for everyone. People are often happier romantically when they realize if this is true for them and act accordingly instead of settling for society’s standards. Marriage is a religious sacrament, civil union and a legal union recognized by the state. “If he liked it then he would’ve put a ring on it?” Not necessarily. The practice has both benefits and disadvantages and not all people agree with the concept of marriage. While marriage already strengthens a stable bond, it doesn’t necessarily fix one that is faulty. Marriage doesn’t guarantee fidelity and is only as strong as the two partners involved. What is important is for people who are entering in relationships to express if they have no intention of marriage so that the other partner can choose whether or not to continue within the situation.
