Quote of the Day
Why are we so obsessed with monogamous fidelity?
In our monogamous part of the world, to marry means to halve one's rights and double one's duties.
When you think about it, we actors are kind of prostitutes. We get paid to feign attraction and love. Other people are paying to watch us kissing someone, touching someone, doing things people in a normal monogamous relationship would never do with anyone who's not their partner. It's really kind of gross.
I'm very monogamous.
Billie Joe Armstrong
My mom is going to kill me for talking about sleeping with people. But I don't want to put myself in the position where I'm in a monogamous relationship right now. I'm not dating just one person. 'Sex and the City' changed everything for me because those girls would sleep with so many people.
For me, the highest level of sexual excitement is in a monogamous relationship.
Straight couples don't have to be monogamous to be married or married to be monogamous. Monogamy no more defines marriage than the presence of children does. Monogamy isn't compulsory and its absence doesn't invalidate a marriage.
The fidelity question is difficult for me. Society has made us believe we're supposed to be monogamous when we're not killer whales, or whatever the monogamous species is.
The mistake that straight people made was imposing the monogamous expectation on men. Men were never expected to be monogamous.
Every society in the history of man has upheld the institution of marriage as a bond between a man and a woman. Why? Because society is based on one thing: that society is based on the future of the society. And that's what? Children. Monogamous relationships.
I don't know if it's responsible for kids of my age to be so aggressively pursuing monogamous binds, because I don't think we're ready for them. The romanticism within our culture dictates that that's what you're supposed to be looking for.
If someone talks about union, fidelity, a monogamous relationship, love, blessing; I would say it sounds like marriage to me. And blessing, you see, I think is undermining our sacrament of marriage.
I don't know that human beings were meant to mate for life or be monogamous. But, for me, the aspect of marriage that is troubling is that it's a contract that is governed by the state, and I don't want the state to have control over my personal affairs.
I'm in a monogamous relationship and very happy.
Frances Bean Cobain
I'm a big proponent of monogamous relationships regardless of sexuality, and I'm proud of how the nation is steering toward that.
Neil Patrick Harris
I don't believe that human beings are necessarily monogamous.
K. D. Lang
There are three basic prerequisites that almost guarantee... that a child won't have a day of poverty. If a person gets married and remains married in a monogamous relationship for life, finishes high school, gets a job, and keeps a job for at least five years, there's a 91 percent likelihood that a... child in that family will not have poverty.
I've never been very successful in a monogamous relationship, but I'm looking forward to the day when I can assume that responsibility.
I've never been monogamous. It might happen, but it never has yet. I don't understand women, I'm off that kick.
Men were never expected to be monogamous.
Martin Luther King, Jr.
John F. Kennedy
