It is impossible to calculate the exact moment when monogamous relations in society ceased to be considered the only "correct" model. The destruction of the traditional institution of the family did not begin suddenly. Marriage remains a valid model and people still sign / arrange traditional weddings. But more and more we hear about polyamores and how "happy they are compared to being in a boring monogamous relationship."

An open relationship is an easy way to sometimes rekindle the flame in the bedroom when it gets boring. This opinion was expressed by Nadia Bokody, a sex specialist from Australia, who studied the reasons why couples choose sex with other people. As Glavred writes, in an article for the NZ Herald, Nadia noted: “People don't like monotony. And there is nothing more predictable than our romantic relationship. " “Despite our culture’s outward obsession with monogamy, very few of us enjoy the reality of life and routine in our relationships, and relationships are gradually changing to reflect this,” she adds. "Over the past decade, there have been searches on the Internet for a surge in polyamory and dating apps designed to meet the growing demand for couples exploring alternative relationship models," the expert writes. The specialist believes that couples are beginning to recognize the fact that sex and love can exist independently. And when sex "dries up", couples wonder if "love" is gone too. “Many couples claim that having sex with someone other than their partner - with the knowledge and permission of their partner - is an incentive to re-ignite the spark in their marriage,” Bokody said. At the same time, the expert warns that if you want to look into this, it's best to talk to your partner first. Couples can explore sex parties together or try apps that cater to their sexual needs. The sex professional notes that it is necessary to negotiate boundaries before embarking on this "journey."

Polyamory: what is known

Polyamory is one of the forms of coordinated non-monogamy, a system of ethical views on love, which allows the possibility of the existence of love relationships between one person and several people at the same time, with the consent and approval of all participants in these relationships.

Polyamory also refers to the practice of love relationships that embodies these views. Adherents of polyamory are polyamorous or polyamorous.

Polyamory suits people who have weighed the pros and cons and decided that this relationship model appeals to them the most. Relationships exist in order to be happy in them. If you are happy in this relationship, why not?
