8 Alternative Relationships You Need to Understand ...


In this day and age, denying alternative relationships is almost impossible!

There are tons of different alternative relationships that might be completely different from yours, but are also interesting to understand.

Below, I'm going to cover the top 8 alternative relationships that might never, ever work for you, but they do for other people.

So girls, you ready to take a dive into some relationships that may never be your lifestyle, but might work for some people?

1. Swingers

Swingers (also referred to as swinging or partner swapping) is a completely non-monogamous behavior in which a married (or couple in a committed relationship) swaps partners to engage in sexual activity.

Will this alternative relationship work for everyone?

Of course not!

But does it work for some people?

It does!

Believe it or not ladies, this actually started way back in the 16th century, so it is nothing new, but it's just difficult to understand sometimes right?

Being Polyamorous

Mormons or members of the church of Jesus Christ of latter day saints do NOT practice polygamy. It ended in the 19th century. However there are churches that do branch off the church of jesus Christ of latter day saints that may or may not practice it. I just wanted to clear that up because I'm Mormon. I love aws though :)

Oh! And Latter Day Saints are Mormons (:

Rachel is right! While there are some splinter groups of the Latter Day Saint faith that practice polygamy (such as Fundamental Latter Day Saints) Latter Day Saints do not! The practice began and ended in the Latter Day Saint religion in the 19th century (: Believe me, I'm a Latter Day Saint.
Mormons rock! They are so nice and honest. I would love to live in Utah.
also, Polyandry is when a woman has multiple husbands!

But you do have to admit that most people recognize Mormons over LDS, so thank you for helping to clear things up for future readers! I'm so glad you liked the article!
