    Not sure if I just should've continued the monogamy thread, but this has been on my mind.

    Seems if I scan my relationship history, what I used to see as a multi-year series of failed attempts at an LTR, I'm starting to reframe as serial monogamy.

    And at this point, my lifestyle and desires are so nicely met by occasional 3 mo.-to-a-year affairs that provide me with emotional intimacy and sex.

    Is this an emotionally mature alternative to marriage and other forms of LTR?

    Whatever makes you happy is what it should be. My LTRs are measured in weeks, I'm good with that.

    I remember reading somewhere that men and women are chemically capable of remaining in 'love' for only four to five years, basically the amount of time needed for young children to be able to start to fend for themselves.

    Maybe gays have the same issue, but it lasts for a shorter period of time because, as hard as we try, we keep failing to make any babies.
