If commitment and loyalty are the things we want now in monogamy, I would say that we are not doing a great job. It is estimated that about one in five Americans cheated. In this digital age where an ex or new lover is only one “like,” I believe that monogamous couples should start using relationship agreements to define the conditions of their monogamy. I would like more people to start thinking about what their expectations for monogamy are. We assume that two people end up confessing to each other and becoming monogamous, so we cannot study the many ways to discuss how monogamy (our personal definition of monogamy) can be violated. There is a growing debate about open and polyamorous relationships that are taking place right now. More and more people are exploring what it`s like to be treated romantically and/or sexually with multiple partners. One of the cornerstones of this type of relationship that helps keep partnerships on track is a document that sets out agreements on correct or non-correct behaviour. A relational agreement is a framework that helps define the parameters of openness to other relationships or experiences. It consists of points to be respected by two people during their relationship.
For example, an open couple can only consent with partners outside of the primary relationship with safe sexual practices, or each partner must tell the other if they start a new sexual relationship with someone else. Developing a relationship agreement is an essential way to achieve clarity and adaptation to your long-term goals within a couple. For example, it is assumed that intimacy and romance are the food that nurtures a relationship, but they depend on the intent behind romantic gestures and the kind of intimacy that thrives in a relationship. Thus, through fruitful discussions, couples will be able to resolve unnecessary misunderstandings and uncertainties. There are issues that need to be considered before such an agreement is signed, which include: “Based on literature and the study of relationships, the contractual idea is not a way to stay in love,” Gottman told Business Insider. Quite the opposite. These amended and related relationship laws are established and enshrined as of the date of — by -The objective of this relationship is to develop, maintain and promote the growth of both stakeholders. To create the space that supports and promotes the stories of the other. This agreement can only be rescinded after a personal meeting consisting of verbal communication with eye contact. Hands must be displayed. Both parties must sit down. Even having relationships doesn`t mean your relationship will be immune to infidelity. Fraud can happen no matter how much you communicate and plan, but it is important that you have a common understanding of what the terms of the relationship are, so that you can hopefully bounce back faster in the event of a transgression.
The ability to put yourself above the list of shared items you have accepted is a good place to start to understand what is not working and hopefully will give some instructions on how to revise them. Yes, there will probably be some items in your single list that need to be maintained all the time for the relationship to work. But in most years, relationship points such as “Managing Disagreements Immediately” are not always realistically achieved in everyday life.
