Supposedly first of its kind. They aren't attracted sexually, romantically or physically. They're best friends. They have an open marriage and date other people.

The article goes on to state that it's a good idea bc we have a different world now and needs are changing bc society is changing, I get that.


I can understand why someone feels no need to marry. But, WHY tie yourself to a platonic friend legally and financially?? If they're so sure they want to bind themselves in this way, they're pretty much saying they aren't EVER going to marry for love or affection romantically. Even IF they fall in love bc
they both date.

Marriage has financial and legal ties. If you don't believe in that, why marry ever for any reason? Seems like a circle ending right back where you start. I mean they can be best friends, date, never marry and STILL be best friends

What say you?

Story here 

TinktheSprite --- 123 days ago -

Simple. They are roommates with tax benefits. 

SagaciousSighFiGurl (Mod) --- 123 days ago -

Yep but why would you do that? Maybe she has no family or close relational ties. To be tied to someone legally for a tax deduction is bizarre IMO.

If you don't believe in marriage and are committed to NEVER marry, I get it. But to get tied to someone for tax or other peripheral issues seems odd. Bc when it's all said and done, she's going into it saying he's her soulmate and they are committing together to always be that. But that's what people marrying for love and romance do too! She's mistaken if she thinks they can't have a falling out. Truth. 

AwesomeTattooedDragon --- 123 days ago -

That has to be the worst reason to marry I've ever heard! 

Prolix Raconteur --- 123 days ago -

Starved for attention. They got it. Idiots. 

jackass --- 123 days ago -

I'm sure it happens a lot. Who cares? 

SagaciousSighFiGurl (Mod) --- 123 days ago -

We care bc were discussing it. Lol. Politics ain't all there is. 

Saturn --- 123 days ago -

I've know people (mostly seniors who lost a spouse) in the past who have married simply out of convenience so they didn't spend the rest of their life / lives alone.

However, if someone is marrying someone else solely for the purpose of a tax break; that doesn't compute. 

Emperor of Kingwood --- 123 days ago -

Marrying for a tax deduction? Not such a far fetched idea.
How many women marry for a guys ability to provide? 

SagaciousSighFiGurl (Mod) --- 123 days ago -

JUST for his ability to provide? Or are they in a dating romantic relationship and that's what they both want?

Most women work now, they provide for themselves. 

the Markster --- 122 days ago -

What say you?

Not exactly new. i.e. Me, You, KU completely platonic. The exception being the inclusion of everyone on KU

bromances, bickering, etc 

AwesomeTattooedDragon --- 122 days ago -

Is it just me, or does anyone understand what he just said? 

Prolix Raconteur --- 122 days ago -

Uh.....no. 

AwesomeTattooedDragon --- 122 days ago -

I didn't think so- 

Emperor of Kingwood --- 122 days ago -

It's Marks usual non sense banter. 

the Markster --- 122 days ago -

Its not that abstract of a concept that box thinkers like bob and the bobbetts couldn't understand. I think its a lack of effort on yalls part. Again...Not my problem. 

Joe Blow --- 122 days ago -

WTF.

Financial benefits. Healthcare benefits. Where you been living? Come out, come out, from under that rock.

SagaciousSighFiGurl (Mod) --- 122 days ago -

Yup, there's that. They are using the system for something.
Then in a reversal, I know a couple that divorced to get the benefits of a college grant. He got free money. And kept the benefits of marriage. Trust me, it wasn't platonic after that. They remarried after he graduated. 

the Markster --- 121 days ago -

markie, you're as funny as a barrel of monkeys! lol!
You're not...Silly old dragon

Reading his posts is like trying to score a monkey sh%t fight.

Emperor of Kingwood --- 121 days ago -

What car did you wind up getting?

I haven't bought anything yet. I decided to spend the weekend at our beach house instead of subjecting myself to the hassel of car shopping. 

RayofHope --- 120 days ago -

I mean they can be best friends, date, never marry and STILL be best friends

Good point.
