    Care of kids from open relationships

    The children were not going to belong to the parents: they could love them, they could meet them, they could invite them, but they cannot possess them. They have been only vehicles of bringing those children to the world. The children are not their property. The commune will take care of the...

    Osho on marriages

    Hence I don't see that with the coming age, with the new maturity that man is attaining, MARRIAGE CAN EXIST ANYMORE IN THE SAME OLD WAY. It has to become more fluid; that means it can no more be an institution. People will live together -- they need each other... Men and women are halves of one...

    Karma

    Karma is not absolute. It is the all about how the mind functions.... like for instance one's intentions being honourable or not. The end result may not be to anyone's liking and may look like a bad deed; but this does not matter..... it's NOT bad Karma. Sometimes we do some acts believing them...

    Care of kids from open relationships

    When people with similar interests (say) "Open Relationships", come together and form a support group with the main aim of providing equal opportunities for the kids; particularly if they cannot be provided with basic minimum facilities by the parents, for whatever reason; then something similar...

    Care of kids from open relationships

    There is often a desire for kids even though one may be averse to a committed relationship. The general worry is if people who do not like to marry for any reason and have kids what will be the position of the kids. What is a wholesome way of bringing up the next generation? I thought maybe we...

    Evolved polyamory?

    It's all an experiment (like the many different lifestyles we are trying out today) that will take atleast a generation or two to establish the new culture. Also it must be allowed to evolve at its own pace. I see 'Intentional "Families/Communities" as just one of the possible alternative...

    Evolved polyamory?

    When an idea is advantageous and suits them things get accepted. There is also nothing "cultist" about this as this is also a form of lifestyle maybe a little more organized that just being poly. Also everything is for mutual and collective benefit.

    Evolved polyamory?

    Starting this should not pose much of a problem. The already polyamorous can form an "Intentional family" prelude to an "Intentional community" of all such families.. The first step is that people who are attracted to a polyamorous lifestyle can be sold on the advantages of forming...

    Evolved polyamory?

    Kdt I get your point. Maybe we need to start a new culture, afresh; with a better version of the Mosuo where both men and women are equal in importance and play complementary roles as Mother Nature intended.They can evolve their own rules, even local currency and voting system etc., as it suits...

    Evolved polyamory?

    When a person stays with his/her mother, uncles and aunts, siblings and cousins, nephews and nieces there is tremendous moral, emotional and economic support that is hard to get in any other system. Coupled with this if he/she can with full freedom choose to have partners from members of similar...

    Evolved polyamory?

    I meant 'evolved' in the sense of the economic advantages enjoyed by the Mosuo besides several layers of moral support by the system employed by them. Polyamorous relationships are constrained by finances as there is a possibility of single parentage just as married couples are prone to. In...

    Evolved polyamory?

    Thank you. I have seen most of his videos. All the more it supports the case for non-monogamous relationships. However I feel unless there is the natural family support polyamory as practised now will still exhibit lacunae and endless mutations.

    Evolved polyamory?

    You write that one of your researchers views monogamy as a “cultural cage” that distorts women’s libido. Is monogamy more suited for men than women? Certainly, women are no better suited for monogamy than men are. That, I think, is clear. It seems possible, if you look at some of the data, that...

    Evolved polyamory?

    I think the greatest drawbacks are its highly individualistic and patriarchal nature besides the non-existence of any family support either morally or economically in case of pregnancy for instance. These negatives are the very things that do not plague the aforementioned Mosuo or the Na...

    Evolved polyamory?

    A thought struck me - what are the practical limitations of polyamory? And what could be the solution? It is just to help me understand better the concept. Alexi

    Evolved polyamory?

    My idea is if a few couples who share similar views can get together and form a close-knit group, it would be ideal. The problem is we do not know who these couples are in a given place. And if they exist how to get them together. Plus there is the factor of inhibitions brought about by...
