Is the idea of having one partner for life still a realistic one?

Supporting Argument 1: Many people still do believe in commitment in a mutual relationship. by Wee Chuan

Many people still seek a blissful marriage such that both parties remain true and faithful to each other.

This could be due to the mindset of traditional values passed down from generations in which polygamy is seen as immoral.

Therefore, with commitment due to the influence from traditional values, a relationship could be sustained. In the long run, the relationship would be a successful and romantic one, making the idea of having one partner for life a realistic one.

Supporting Argument 2: Having one partner for life allows one to focus on other aspects of life. by Daryl Lim

Sticking with one partner for life allows one to focus on other aspects of life such as work and health. This is because having to change partners requires major changes to one's lifestyle, such as places of habitation and financial accounts

Therefore, having one partner for life is a realistic idea.

Supporting Argument 3: Both parties may be truly in love with each other. by Sincere

When it comes to marriage, the more oftenly associated point would be the result of couples being in love with each other and want to stay with each other for life. Hence, if both parties do love each other deeply and are loyal to each other, having only one partner in life is realistic and it may even be hard for them to have a second parttner in life.

Opposing Argument 1: Bad influence coming from the media as well as government leaders. by Wilbert

Government leaders are increasingly becoming involved in scandals, influencing their followers who may think that it is alright to follow suit

Media gives the impression that having multiple partners is a good thing

Granted the influence from the media and government leaders could change their mindsets about having multiple partners and scandals, but it doesn't mean that one will think that having one partner for life is unrealistic. What's the link here?

Opposing Argument 2: Not realistic because of hectic lifestyles and constant exposure to other people. By Matthew

Current day lifestyles causes couples to be detached from one another. Research has shown that the time spent on working on an average work day is found to be an alarming 8.6hours for people that are employed aged 23-54. As such, one might find that they spend more time with their colleagues rather than their spouse

There is not enough time for couples to show their affection for one another. When this happens either one of the couple will start to lose feelings for the other and this results in break-ups or leading to one party to have an affair with an outsider.

Thesis Statement / Stand

The idea of having one partner for life is still a realistic one.

Indeed, with bad influence from many aspects and the lifestyle of modern people as part of the reason, the society nowadays have rising cases of divorces and the idea of having only one partner in life seems more of a ideal than reality. However, as having one partner in life allows one to concentrate on other aspects of life, there is a presence of mindset regarding polygamy being immoral and that couples may be truly in love with each other throughout their life. As such, having one partner for life remains a realistic goal for most.
