(1) Marriage (2) Group Sex

Wed Mar 29, 2006 9:27 am

It is said that in Scandinavian countries, marriage is becoming less and less important.

If so, isn't the logical result a complete abandonment of the idea that any two people must bind together to create a life to which they are committed?

If marriage as a concept is thrown out, what is to stop polygamists or believers in group sex to start communal institutions that they would argue better suits their own needs?

To me, the 1960's ended when a wave of conservatism inundated this country in the mid-1970's. But in other countries, liberalism of the 1960's "free love" style seems never to have ended. What is the experience of folks from liberal countries regarding the necessity of marriage, and the possibilites of a communal marriage substitute?

Thanks in advance.

So the two are not mutually exclusive; I agree.

Sex, I think, is God's way of affirming the beauty of relationships, and the fact that I've conflated marriage and sex is therefore simply a conventional affirmation of this principle. (This is a principle that may or may not be accepted by all.)

I think that proof of the necessity of sexual relationships in marriage or marriage-like concepts is the fact that communal relationships often result in sexual encounters. It is, in that sense, "natural", so to speak.

Huh? Why's that said?

AFAIK, marriage is not less important here in scandinavia compared to other places...

To me, marriage is not something religious (as it was created before there was anything called "religion", how can it be?), but something you do with someone you want to spend the rest of your life with- something you do with the person you love the most to show your love and commitment to one another.

I do want to get married someday- definitely not because of religion but to show that I care and that the relationship means something to me and I wouldn't throw it out or give it up for anything.

Group sex? Just sounds like a great way to catch something, but if you're into that, go ahead...  vomit

Nothing wrong with group sex as long as everyone has protection. Mainly eye goggles to prevent things from spraying in your eyes.

Um I have never heard that Scandinavia in particular is somewhere where marriage becomes less and less important. Where did you hear this? I myself plan to get married some day, and I think I prefer "ordinary" sex lol.

Where did you get this information? I am not saying it’s incorrect, but I don't think so. On the other hand low marriage rate has nothing to do with free sex etc. I on the other hand, am under the impression that marriage in the US becoming even less popular. The is no other country with more divorces that the US (I heard). Maybe we Scandinavian, take marriage a little bit more serious, so when we first make a commitment, we stand by it and probably are lot more faithful than our colleagues in the US.

Other countries divorce rates are catching up and exceeding the US'. Japan for instance is a good example of this.

Also, while I'm all for sexual freedoms like group sex, gay sex, whatever sex (within reason, no animals, kids etc), I cannot imagine a world where the virtue of marriage has all but disappeared. What state would that leave the kids/future generations in? One parent if their lucky and they might get to serve drinks and mommys weekly gangbang. Married couples, even ones with kids today participate in group sex, swing clubs etc. Most do it in a discreet and safe manner. More power to them. Free love doesn't mean "no marriage". Nor is their any solid evidence of marriage becoming less important. Free love is not a concept the majority of people can get down with.

As far as I know, divorce rates are higher in the US than in the three Scandinavian countries. Still, less people actually get married over here, at least in Sweden. But my question is this: So what? Marriage is basically a religious tradition, and not that many people are religious here. I just don't see the point. My parents never got married, and they separated when I was ten years old. And that worked out for the best for everyone involved. Then again, most of my close friends' parents got divorces when we were around that age, the only couples who are still together are the ones that are not actually married.

At first glance, I think it's kind of weird. I'd have to explore it some more. It seems to take the position that marriage is bad for men.

Also, thanks to everyone who has already answered the question about why Scandinavian people are sometimes said not to place as much emphasis on marriage.
