5 Reasons Why You Never Have To Defend Your Relationship Desires

Written by

For some reason, relationship status is one of those things that people really seem to think they have a right to an opinion about, when the reality is that the kind of relationship you want is really no one’s business but your own. (And probably your partner’s, if you have one.) These days, there are so many different options that we each can choose what kind of relationship we want in our lives. Into polyamory? Awesome! Only want to ever have sex with one person for your entire life? Do you! Down for no-strings attached sex but squirm at the idea of a partner? Sounds fun!

But hey, I’ve totally found myself in the position of feeling like I had to defend the I kind of relationship I wanted, especially back when I was dating — and I’ve also found myself on the other end of the judging spectrum. The truth of the matter is, we tend to put a lot of moral weight on romantic relationships and, as a result, it’s easy to look down our noses at other people’s choices. If you think about it, though, what’s to be gained by judging other people’s relationship desires? Once you realize that the answer is “nothing,” you also realize that no one has the right to judge yours either.

With that in mind, here are five reasons that you never have to defend your relationship desires to anyone:

1. It’s None Of Their Business

And yeah, that includes your mom. Whether you’re a bisexual person in a heterosexual, monogamous relationship or a heterosexual person in polyamorous relationships, the only people who need to know why are you and your partner(s). Of course, it’s always up to you if you want to share you reasons with other people but the key is that it’s up to you. Don’t let anyone shame you into thinking that you have to justify your desires to them if you’re not romantically involved with them.
