And yes, it appears that I am "preaching to the wrong choir" if you and most are of the opinion that sex deprivation(which is not a guarantee in a monogamous relationship though appears to be the implication) is worse than child deprivation(which is a guarantee in non monogamous relationships).
Of course if you have no aspirations of being a dad, then i can see the view of being opposed to monogamy bc what would be the point?
I have plenty aspirations, but while I'm single and young, what's the point of even thinking about a family? Time is better spent enjoying the present.
I see it as a blessing to have sex deprivation be one of the worst things I can experience right now. Poker is volatile, the less liabilities you have, the happier you're going to be. To have to worry about supporting other people, ugh, that's just unnecessarily increasing the rake if that **** isn't important to you right now.
do you really not wish you had some more time to chase women all over the world ? Once you have a family that's it, that's an anchor. I don't get the love for that especially in these forums. That's 10 years too early imo.
"i think you would realize the importance of a monogamous relationship and finding that one person to build a family with."
This I agree with immensely. I was just picking on you for the child comment :P It's like 12 tabling vs 1 tabling in a way. Bad metaphor but yes, time spent focused on someone you care about can be a much richer experience, but the single life isn't without merit either. Anyone saying that relationships are evil and -ev, well that's just a bit immature.
Cliffs: This was a roundabout way of saying, all these arguments are elastic/dynamic (proper wording?). It really just depends on what phase of your life you're in. You can't convince someone who's at a different stage to see it your way i.e. having kids vs. no kids argument. It probably gives you a sense of happiness, accomplishment, and challenge that a lot of us wouldn't appreciate at this moment.
NCSU is in total bangbang mode and nxtworld seems like he's happily on his way to grandpa status :P
