Skip to comments.NYT: Monogamy 'Destroys More Lives Than It Saves'
Posted on 07/01/2011 8:58:45 AM PDT by chessplayer
It's Fourth of July weekend - how about cheating on your spouse?
For those not thinking about it, a piece to be published in the New York Times Magazine this Sunday marvelously titled "Married, With Infidelities" is recommending it:
Yup. Sigmund Freud was THE expert on sex, and look at all the trouble he caused over the years.
Crap like this only is taken seriously in Manhattan
"Some people need more than one partner, he writes, just as some people need flirting, others need to be whipped, others need lovers of both sexes. We cant help our urges, and we should not lie to our partners about them. In some marriages, talking honestly about our needs will forestall or obviate affairs; in other marriages, the conversation may lead to an affair, but with permission. In both cases, honesty is the best policy."
The NYT is a civilizational wrecking ball, a loud megaphone for the defining down of deviancy. May all who are involved in sustaining this hideous organization, in any way, be cursed.
NYT all the crap fit to SPREW.
assuming you survive the answer,
if she insists on nothing outside marriage,
you can try Islam for a backup plan.
then you can be faithful,
and still get at least 4 for variety...
Actually, very few animals mate for life and among mammals, only two species do it and both of them are having severe problems. Humans with infidelity and a small rodent that lives along the northwest coast is dying out.
Before this thread goes much further someone will claim that the Bible says we should only have one wife. That is wrong. The Bible makes no such declaration, in fact among the early years it was customary for the wife and children of a deceased man to go to his brother. That kept the Hebrews from needing any sort of welfare system.
In Paul’s first epistle to Timothy he did say that leaders of the Church should be husbands of one wife which - by intimation - means that everyone else could have more than one wife.
Now, I have to say that I don’t think polygamy will work well in our society. Women have rights here that would make any such policy difficult to deal with.
Expanding family courts influence guanantees growth of the criminal courts as well when all those angry offspring reach their teens.
Growing The State is a neverending cycle.
Really. What a joke. I wonder if the author and the staff practice what they preach. "Honey, I have to work late tonight......"
actually, though many here would debate you, you have a good ally in Martin Luther himself. he himself said the same as you, and in fact, he attended a royal wedding, where the man married a SECOND wife.
...even the Catholic church has condoned this, under extreme circumstances. after a war in south america,
i read they officially permitted weddings with more than one wife, because so many men had been killed.
Quite a few birds do as well.
Rodent not doing well surprises me...they have large, frequent litters and unless they’re absolutely terrible at avoiding danger or there’s some sickness I don’t know about, it’s quite against the odds not to have at least a slowly increasing population purely from the size of the litters.
I used to raise tame rats and mice at different points in my life and no one would blink at a litter of 8.
They are making the argument a bit prematurely but it is nevertheless valid. Homosexual marriages are certain to produce extreme violence between the partners. The legalization of homosexual marriage will prove to be the very best way to discourage marriage.
Dan Savage. Isn’t he the one who went around Republican offices licking doorknobs and pens to try and spread the flu. I think the flu kills more people (old people and babies) than AIDS. Yeah, I think he fits right in with the Times as a voice of morality.

Escaped rubber-roomer Dan Savage again.
homosexuals are not monogomous.
the idea is to cheeping normal marriage into the fetishist.
see brave new world.

The ny times supported gay marriage because they want to destroy the institution of marriage.The times wants to destroy all institutions that people of faith hold dear.
You remind me of a Pakistani Muslim fellow I used to work with. He would tell us all that Islam did allow him to have four wives, and he gave a very detailed history of this not unlike why the Jews did this in the Bible (guys getting killed in battle, women needed to be supported, etc.)
Then he would roll his eyes and say “Of course....nobody is crazy enough to actually try it today!”
The good news is that obviously he had never met Osama Bin Laden.
ny slimes does more for satan than any other a$$ wipe paper.
