Ok so I was wrong. Polyandry is actually the practice of a woman having multiple husbands/mates. Sorry about that!

A lot of bisexual men seem to make open relationships work for awhile anyway. I've never known anything to last more than a few years though. It's nice in theory but it seems like most people have too many hang-ups or what have you. A friend of mine thinks that this kind of relationship is chaotic and it's never healthy but plenty of unhealthy behavior seems to work for most people. Me personally, when I'm single I'm out there making the most of every opportunity but when I'm committed that's the only person in the world.

It works very well for people who can get rid of their hangups. I haven't seen one last more than a few years yet, but I also haven't seen many monogamous relationships last beyond a few years without either cheating or giving in to sexlessness. Any type of relationship works better with the right people.

Hmmm, my parents were married for 50 years and were very in love until my mother passed. It wasn't all roses but I doubt there was cheating or sexlessness. The right people? Yes, it takes total commitment and both people being themselves. You never heard two people argue and laugh so loudly. Neither knew how to keep themselves to themselves in our house and I think that's why they never got bored. I can't say I know much more than I already said about open relationships, I was just offering it up.

I've seen open relationships fail miserably with the wrong people hahaha. But I know from personal experience that with the right people, they can work very well. Most relationships, open or closed, don't last long honestly lol. But I personally much preferred the dynamics of my open relationships over the dynamics of my closed one.

kind of off the subject but I wanted to share

my grandfather had to have cataract surgery when he was in his 80's. my grandmother being the very open person she was, complained to me that he "couldn't do anything" for awhile after his surgery. it was all I could do to keep from busting out laughing. way to go, grandma.

PS....I doubt there was any cheating going on there.

Don't get me wrong, I didn't say it doesn't happen. I'm just saying it is super common for them to either fail or become sexless. We have all seen it, and heard about it. There's always that old joke about a married woman always having a headache. Women tend to like variety more than men do haha.

Why shouldn't physical intimacy be important in a relationship? There are so many studies showing how good it is for you. Both cuddling and sex.

What if they were beating you? A lot of abused women stay because they love the man. That's a stupid reason to stay.

I partially agree. I don't think it's real love. I think it's an addiction. But they believe it's love, and it's a stupid reason not to leave. A bad sex life should never be the *only* reason you leave a relationship; unless of course it's just a fuck buddy relationship. Couples should work on their sex lives. But that doesn't mean it can't add up with other problems. It certainly shouldn't be ignored. Too many people give up on their sex lives, especially when in long term relationships, because they think it's impossible. It can be an easy fix if they would just put some effort into it. If necessary, a sex therapist can do wonders.

Absolutely wrong to leave a mate when sexual desire is weaker or even dying.. An advance medical technology has various aspects of help to the patient base on their health conditions and a kind of problems that they have. Sex therapist could do a lot also.

Sexual desire like all emotion is only part of the picture and shouldn't be the sole basis for any major decision. However the lack of sexual desire for a mate is a symptom of dysfunction. Worthwhile sexual therapists are truly couples' therapists and focus on nurturing sexual desire through improving overall intimacy by working through relationship issues, not the mechanics of the sex act. Relationships are complex. Sex is not just sex for couples, it's part of the language of love and intimacy.
