Recently I’ve been keeping myself busy with this thought. Despite being desperate due to bad experiences, I stumbled upon this post from Huffingtonpost Is it the future for gay guys?.
Yes, the research is based from the US and I live in Europe. But still, I believe in globalization lol. And hell, I’ve moved here in Europe on my own so I don’t mind living in the US one day if I have the chance. Anyway, the research shown that the younger generation tend to seek for a monogamous relationship. I’m starting to believe that there is hope for gay guys. It is not that we should live in heteronormative society but I do believe in a monogamous relationship would bring more happiness and health.
It mentioned in the article that this was one of the respond to the court that legalized same sex couple in 2015. what’s with the fact that in Europe same sex marriage has been legalized for a quiet long time now? And yet there are still many couples that are in an open relationship/ marriage/ bot even looking for any of it. I guess cultural differences play a big role here. Is it also the fact that I’m from Asia and believe in a family manner(close with the family, great relationship with relatives, social bonding is a way of living)? Since being a family person is not everyone’s idea of live but I know that having a family in a loving atmosphere is what keeps me want to stay alive- I’ll tell the story about my coming out later.
What your thoughts about it? Is it true that monogamy among gay guys is the new black?
