Traditional values

Are u traditional? (When it comes to values marriage family...) what are your thoughts on people who are / aren't?

I am very traditional and was raised that way. Though I think it better for society I am a live and let live kind of person.
@Jorgillo Why isn’t hatred, divisiveness and bigotry better for society ? That isn’t obvious to you ? 🤔
Jorgillo · 36-40, M
@bijouxbroussard she said that she is a live and let live kind of person. because it's better for society. And I thought you disagreed with that. Of course Hatred and Bigotry aren't good for society.
@Jorgillo She also said she was "traditional". I said that it depends on the tradition.

Traditional is the best
@Rainandforest Fair enough, but I suspect there are some traditions of other countries that aren’t necessarily “the best”, either.

@BlueGreenGrey That is true. But some that we embraced were pretty vile.
"Traditional" values are usually a dog whistle for sexism, racism, phobias, child abuse, etc... Just a look at the traditional values users on this site shows people realllly into punishments for children. It's also a political buzzword of the GOP in their crusade against their enemies. All in all what once might have been okay is now so soiled as to be disgusting.

@canusernamebemyusername its not always black or white. I definitely am traditional and disagree with everything u said about traditional values
@dontdmme Then you’re not traditional in terms of the U.S. Those are deeply rooted traditional values here.

Traditional marriages last. Non Traditional marriages fail.
Jackaloftheazuresand · 26-30, M
my values would be considered as such but it's not the reason behind them and I think others are much the same. So the question is better as what I think of people who aren't like me. The easiest and most encompassing assessment I can give is that they are a dashed line while those like me are solid.

I'm in the middle of the road.

I like to be independent and have my own money, my own say, and my own bedroom- even in a relationship. But I'm more traditional in that I like for my partner to have more of a masculine "role" in the relationship. I am a passive, gentle person so I do better when my partner can step up and take the lead (but not try to be my dad).
I know gay couples who have been together far longer than most traditional marriages last.

My parents were married for more than 50 years.
It didn’t work out for any of their children though.

Family isn’t blood.

@SW-User even if u are gay u can have values that are traditional
@dontdmme the word traditional is the hang up for me.

I'm not traditional or new age. I just have my own weird thoughts on things. I think that humans aren't meant to be monogamous because it seems that all monogamous people cheat. People can think of excuses but I think it goes back to early ancestral evolution of tribes and such. Also men and women think very differently and in early days of human relationships, monogamy didn't really have much of a value as opposed to groups.

I just don't think there's any such thing as monogamy. However, that doesn't mean that people can't have a healthy relationship, it's just that people will do things on the side probably. Men especially usually have multiple women but one main woman, it's just how they are.

People who are wise, have a higher chance at having blessings in their lives..
People who are not have a higher chance of experiencing tragedies in their lives..

Following wisdom and being wise is worth far more then all the IQ points in mensa..
DeWayfarer · 61-69, M
Whose tradition? 🤷🏻‍♂️

It's impossible to count the number of them.

In my childhood home it was a tradition to use krampus as a threat at Christmas on kids.

Are threats a value? If not why the tradition.
WanderingThrough · 31-35, F
For me, “traditional” is what I would want. It’s not my place to judge others, however. Other people’s marriages have nothing to do with me.
dontdmme · 22-25, F
@WanderingThrough i feel the same way
btchstfu · F
i think i am, in some ways. and i dont really care if ppl choose to follow tradition or not as long as they dont forcefully push their values on other ppl
BlackHeart · 31-35, M
Yes, traditional values create stable environments for raising children. However tough economic times have pushed women into the work force creating a breakdown in the roles of the household. Single mother households have been statistically proven to have negative outcomes for the children. It is clear which system will benefit society in the long run, monogamy is built on trust where as polygamy is built on lust.
@BlackHeart And yet there are cultures where polygamy was "traditional". So not all traditions are positive.

People have different beliefs and values and attitudes. Mine are traditional. I can relate to people who are different in different ways but the closer the relationships are the more significant those beliefs and values become to me, and then they really start to matter.

I have no intention of entering a romantic relationship ever again, but if I did and sought commitment, which why would I not if in love, her beliefs and values would have to be close to mine.

I keep good traditions.
Only the good ones, not a few but far from all ones.
Torsten · 36-40, M
no. I dont believe in marriage at all. I used to be fairly traditional to a point, like as in wanting to be married, have a bunch of kids and all that but life had other plans and things that happened that woke me up to it just not being for me.
I see no benefit for men to get married these days. Marriage only benefits women and I have worked too hard for everything i have to lose everything all over again
so traditional you can call me Rev. Louis P. Sheldon
BigImo · 22-25, F
I couldn't be less traditional tbh 😂
Renkon · 36-40, M
Positive human values remain the same. Like Love, Compassion, Tolerance, Discipline, respect...etc. But what it means to people, changes with time. So in that respect traditions need to evolve. Else there will be unhealthy conflict. The key is being wise and smart.
CestManan · 46-50, F
"Traditional" is not a word I am familiar with.

Does it have something to do with straight couples having s3x through a hole in the bed sheet, missionary style, once a week on Sunday after church?

Very. I make no apologizies. As to my position why comment and welcome the inevitable fist fights.
There you have it.
I honestly don’t know exactly what’s traditional for a gay couple. We just do what we do and my wife and I are happy.
People need to mind their own business.
dontdmme · 22-25, F
@SW-User its a discussion u can still share your views
@dontdmme I sorry, that was my view. I should have been clearer.
dontdmme · 22-25, F
@SW-User aight thanks for sharing
Convivial · 26-30, F
Everyone is different...a stable relationship would be a good thing despite all the external pressures
DunningKruger · 61-69, M
No. I support the rights of others to live how they want to as long as it doesn't infringe on the rights of others.
Dv8rs · 18-21, F
Marriage seems like a mirage, you keep walk toward, but never get there.
Everyone should do what makes them happy as long as it involves consenting adults.
SteelHands · 61-69, M
I'm with the one that gave us the sacrament. All others are his business.
To an extent yet not blind-foldedly. To each their own.
I live in a country with some very ugly "traditional values" so I would not really call myself "traditional". I tend to be a bit wary of people who judge others by that particular yardstick, too.
Idontdomornings · 31-35, M
I like tradition myself, but times change.
dontdmme · 22-25, F
@Idontdomornings doesn't mean u have to change with times. At least not in your values and morals
InstructHer · 56-60, M
I subscribe to the man leading the home.
Rolexeo · 26-30, M
Not really, I'm just not a lunatic

Tracos · 51-55, M

I am not traditional. My view, however, is that if everyone involved in a relationship is able to give informed consent on the relationship continuing, then it is not my business whether their relationship is traditional or not. People should seek a life that makes them happy.
Fukfacewillie · 51-55, M
Not sure what those values are!
dontdmme · 22-25, F
@Fukfacewillie im sure u do
Fukfacewillie · 51-55, M
@dontdmme No ma’am.
caesar7 · 61-69, M
Yes...traditional and conservative
