Strange Relationships

Updated: Feb 11, 2023

Strange Relationships can refer to relationships that are unconventional or unexpected, such as:

Polyamorous relationships: Relationships involving more than two people who are involved with each other romantically or sexually.

Age gap relationships: Relationships where there is a significant difference in age between partners.

Interracial relationships: Relationships where partners come from different racial or ethnic backgrounds.

Friends with benefits: Relationships where two friends have a sexual relationship without being in a romantic or committed relationship.

Incestuous relationships: Relationships between people who are related by blood.

Master-slave relationships: Relationships where one person has power and control over the other person in a BDSM context.

Incarcerated relationships: Relationships where one partner is in prison and the other is outside.

Long-distance relationships: Relationships where partners live far apart from each other.

These types of relationships often face societal stigma and discrimination, but they can also be healthy and fulfilling for those involved.

Polyamorous relationships are romantic relationships that involve more than two people, where all partners are aware and consent to being involved with each other. It is a form of ethical non-monogamy where the individuals involved have a genuine emotional connection with each other and prioritize open communication, honesty and respect. Polygamous relationships are when one person has multiple partners at the same time. This is often called having multiple spouses. Instead of just one husband or wife, there are several partners involved in the relationship.

This type of relationship is often seen in some religious and cultural practices.

People engage in polyamorous relationships for a variety of reasons, including a desire for emotional and/or romantic connections with multiple partners, a willingness to challenge societal norms and expectations surrounding monogamy, and a belief in non-monogamy as a valid relationship choice. Ultimately, the motivations for pursuing polyamory can vary greatly from person to person, and can be influenced by individual values, experiences, and relationship styles.

But here is some information on polyamorous relationships based on research:

Love and affection:

People in polyamorous relationships may love and have deep affection for more than one person at the same time.

Personal fulfillment:

Some individuals in polyamorous relationships may feel that having multiple partners provides them with greater fulfillment and satisfaction than monogamous relationships.

Variety and diversity:

Some polyamorous individuals value diversity and seek to have different types of relationships with different people.

Openness and honesty:

People in polyamorous relationships may value honesty, transparency, and openness in their relationships and see polyamory as a way to live their lives in a way that is true to themselves.

Challenging societal norms:

Some people in polyamorous relationships may choose to live this way as a way of challenging traditional societal norms and expectations around relationships and sexuality.
