Monogamous relationships in Germany
Monogamy is every girl's dream. This concept is the basis of many films and books and is the winged expression "lived together happily ever after, died in one day". A monogamous relationship requires the presence of only one permanent partner. Is this possible in the modern world? Or does polygamy now rule the ball?
Monogamy is the conscious choice of only one life partner. It implies a complete rejection of sexual relations with other people. Monogamous relationships are preferred in most countries of the world. For this reason, the institution of family and marriage exists and successfully functions. When entering into a legal civil marriage, two people sign a kind of contract, according to which they confirm their intentions to remain faithful to their other half.
Monogamy is common to most members of the human race. It is generally believed that women are more likely to have such relationships. This is due to the presence of the ladies ' maternal instinct. It is much easier to expect help and protection from one reliable partner than in a situation of danger to rush in search of one of your old acquaintances.
Men, too, for the most part come to realize that monogamous relationships are a healthy type of relationship. A sense of possessiveness pushes males to search for the only true girl. Of course, there are many people who do not have access to monogamy. In our society, such behavior is condemned. The variety of sexual partners is commonly referred to by the term "polygamy".
Many couples live harmoniously and in terms of polygamous relationship. It should be clarified that this only works when all participants in the interaction are fully satisfied with this state of Affairs, and directly declare their inclinations and preferences. In families where one partner "goes to the left" and the other just does not know about it, polygamy will not take root. This state of Affairs is called treason. At the same time, from time immemorial, people have practiced group sex and free love. Free love with several partners at once is strongly condemned by most peoples. Interestingly, there are States in which polygamy is the accepted norm.
Monogamy, as far as numbers are concerned, is terrible. Almost every second couple in Germany is getting divorced, the trend is increasing. Our relationship lasts an average of four years, and about half of German adults have cheated on each other. Infidelity is the most common cause of divorce. No wonder: more than half believe that their sexual desires are not realized in a couple.
Many people - especially young people-wonder whether monogamy - that is, "exclusive" sexual relations with one partner-is the only acceptable form of sexual life. Some believe that absolute fidelity is mandatory, others see monogamy as a hopelessly outdated dogma and predict (as, for example, the famous German sexologist Volkmar Sigusch) - its inevitable demise.
The form of a relationship always depends on specific partners, and people change over time and always have to find individual solutions. "Sexuality is, of course, a very personal matter, but in a partnership it ceases to be something exclusively individual."

In the youth magazine Bravo, problems of sex were openly discussed, and erotic films appeared in film distribution.
