Research suggests that, while it is possible to predict whether two people could enjoy spending time together in the short term, it’s (nearly) impossible to scientifically match two people for long-term compatibility.
The strongest predictors of a good, functional relationship are how a couple interacts, and their ability to handle stress — two things that science says current dating website algorithms can’t predict and online profiles can’t demonstrate.
Some people think that having their partner watch porn is cheating; when did it become so taboo to look? There are swingers, people who enjoy threesomes and even “open” marriages, where each partner is allowed to have their own sex life outside of the marriage. My opinions and feelings about marriage might change, but I think it's really time to stop looking at divorce as a failure.
The greater public frowns upon cheating, and it's treated as moral failing.
But, what if we are just trying to force people into monogamy when it's not necessarily how we were built to live?
Plus, humans are animals, and I'm not sure if they're monogamous ones.
Who doesn't see an attractive person and think about the sexual possibilities? Maybe it's not about either party failing as a partner, but it's the system itself that isn't working. Being attracted to other people and feeling connections with a person other than your spouse feels natural to me.
I got inspired by them, thinking that if they can do it, why not me?
