I'd be interested in a commune if it didn't revolve around sex... >_>
So let's start a commune.
We are going to need a bigger house....maybe an island somewhere. I'm cool with that... as long as it has internet access.
Sure, though an apartment complex with a community hall, pool, gym - would be a more practical idea, unless we have a billionaire here.
Who's with me?
I am, at least for a couple of years. Don't think I can live longer than that in a commune.
What are your ideas on polygamy?
I'm okay with polyamory, as long as its consensual & couples have the option to become exclusive if they want. I'd prefer to be in an exclusive relationship.
What's your ideal "Lifestyle"
Don't know. Depends on my mood
What would you like or dislike about it?
About living in a commune? Like - having like minded people close by. Dislike - i'm a very private person & will get cranky if my space is trampled on.
How would you divide up the jobs?
I can cook and do stuff around the house.
What rules would you set in place to keep the peace?
Give everyone their personal space.
So who's rich enough to buy an island or an apartment complex here?
I don't believe in marriage. I think all of our sexual relationships should be open, and marriage has this fidelity clause built in. In spite of this, I got married and have been faithful. I don't believe in "fooling around" either. sex should be open and honest. polygamy is an even worse idea than monogamy. I believe we can care about and love more than one person, but marriage is a lie. I picture it like this: in a commune everything belongs to the commune (don't know how "personal" items would work) so in case of separation the commune gets everything therefore there is no need for a marriage.
While I have always been handy around the house, cooking (not great) cleaning and picking up after myself and others, washing, shopping, yard work, and more, I am suffering several medical conditions. I cannot promise how effective I would be.
Dividing up jobs would be the hardest. assuming one or more have no paying job, what kind of worth do you assign to their efforts? Other places I have looked at briefly seem to base it on a 40 hour week, but what about work quality?
