Antonio finds an open relationship atrocious. He says he is, and always be monogamous and expects his partner to be such as well. For me, I am definitely in support of this more liberal accord but of course, with strong grounds and limitations. Rule 1: we have been partners (or married) for more than 3 years ( Psychologists say that love lasts for 3 years. After that, it goes to another level..companionship, friendship etc. Don't ask me for any proof coz I just read it somewhere) and Rule number 2: we do it separately and we don´t need to know. It sounds tricky, I know it is. In a relationship dictated by norms of the society, we are bound to stay faithful with one another, to be honest and to be a property (to an extent) of each one. However, with the advent of modern media and constant changing society, these traditional values are slowly changing. Not disappearing but evolving into a different stratosphere.
More and more people are experimenting different ways to fulfill their desires and needs. To some, it may sound like a complete perversion but for others, it´s an important way of liberating themselves from hidden fervor which only they would know how to satisfy. You may frown with the idea of cyber-relationship (and sex), threesomes, leather, etc. but to those who practice these, it is what their minds and bodies are longing...wanting...hence, they can do nothing but be obliged to do so.
Man's obsession to find perfection is infinite. We always try to find the absolute and defect-less of everything---things, people, relationship---and because of this obsession, most of the time, we only see flaws and defects which we hope we could get in another form, shape or size. A lot of times we say ¨oh, I wish my boyfriend/ girlfriend is like this...or like that¨ and at the end of the day, we could only dream. However, there are those who are brave enough to go out of their way to achieve such desires without hurting somebody else´s feelings. Mutual consent is the key factor. One should only do if the other has no problem with it.
