Is it true ? That swingers have a much lower divorce rate than other couples ? Is it true that swinging couples have a far fewer divorce rate than other couples ?Submitted: 1784 days ago
Honestly...I would have to agree to that statement.
not sure if there have any studies proving this, but i could see it being true.
If statistically they don't-they should! We are waaaay happier people ;)
I would believe that
There is a certain honor among theives after all...
The question should be "Do people stay together out of love or just because they need a partner in crime?"
Maybe if the couple is very intelligent and mature, they can handle the ups and downs of that lifestyle and maybe even feel "closer" because of it... But sadly, most people are not that aware their own emotions and reasoning and so it's better for them to just follow the rules that have been laid out for them.
Until you can cite published articles from peer-reviewed journals, you might as well say the world is flat.
*any idiot* can write an article in some swinger mag and say whatever they want and not have to prove it.
Swinging hasn't been around long enough to do any true studies on it.
Basically swinging is agreed upon cheating as far as I'm concerned which dismisses the whole sanctity and committment of marriage in the first place. Why get married? Just stay out there screwing everybody.
Swingers like to say it brings spark and life into a marriage but to me it is jus when two people agree that they will openly cheat on each other. Go figure!
I've never heard of that study being done, but I'd say it's probably true!
It's kind of like having your cake and eating it to. You get all the security of being a commited couple, and all the fun of sleeping with others!
It's not the type of lifestyle I want, but to each his own! :-)
There's alot of trust between a couple who are involved in the swinging lifestyle and you will also find that there is open communication so my belief is that yes there are far fewer divorces.
probably because there aren't any cheating boundaries.
The root cause of most divorces is lack of communication, dishonesty, or finances. Swingers have solid relationships based on honesty and open communication, which goes to eliminate almost all of the issues listed above.
Swingers that do divorce, have other issues at work besides swinging, and swinging merely magnifies whatever those issues might be. Some people get into swinging for all the wrong reasons, setting themselves up to fail.
Scientific studies show consistently that swingers bond better in a relationship than monogamous couples. Another interesting outcome of research is that swingers are happier in their relationships than the average person. 60 Percent of swingers said that swinging improved their relationship. Also swingers rate themselves happier (59% against 32% very happy). Overall they consider their lives much more exciting (76% against 54% exciting) than couples who don't consider swinging as a lifestyle.
If that statistic is true it would make sense...of course the divorce rate would be lower, because they are not married couples. They are not acting like a married couple, they're acting like they're single if they're with other people other than their spouse.
Its not a marriage, it allows them to do what they want, with no regard for or commitment to their spouse. Naturally they'd be as happy as larks & the divorce rate would be low....

First of all, from this statement, it sounds like you're saying that "normal" marriages incur a "normal" amount of dissatisfaction or unhappiness because they restrict one's freedom. Not a real marriage, eh? Well one opinion is as good as another I guess, and here's mine: swingers marriages are just as valid as anyone else's, and maybe more valid than some in some cases. Let me get this straight. You're saying that a real marriage, by definition, restricts one's freedoms. That is the defining characteristic?? I have to wonder what the hell anyone would want to get married for?? Because a life of subservient anguish is supposed to be desirable or more holy? A life of martyrdom? That's pure BS. And FYI, you've been sadly misinformed about the nature of the swinging lifestyle. Swingers are acutely aware of their spouse's emotional needs and you simply can NOT engage in swinging without the commitment to his or her happiness.
Anyway, this is a bit of a trick question. The swingers who get divorced BECAUSE of swinging weren't really swingers to begin with IMO. Of those swingers who find success at swinging, divorces still happen, but believe it or not, it may not have anything to do with swinging. But if you're strong enough to swing, there's not much else out there that's going to rock your boat. Although I'm very pro-swinging, I'm leery of slinging around statistics. It's a very underground lifestyle so the stats are too easy to shoot down. However, I have no problem saying that they're good indicators. And they indicate that swingers marriages are happier and less fraught with drama and grief.
It is a hard number to pinpoint, but the accepted figure for the divorce rate of swinger couples is around 15%.
From what I have read on the web I think thats true.
But It can destroy a marrage.
