Relationships in a World of Individualism

  • rWorld

    The rWorld is about more than Dale Kuehne's book Sex and the iWorld.
    The rWorld is a New England based, non-profit (in formation), that is composed of a growing number of people and organizations from many faith and ideological backgrounds worldwide. We believe that much of the fulfillment for which women and men are looking can be found by enhancing the quality of our relationships. While the individual freedom we enjoy in the West is a gift, the love and intimacy for which humans yearn will not be found in self-serving materialism or hedonism, but in a variety of healthy relationships.

    In this blog I'm highlighting signposts of the world in which we presently reside as a means of helping promote a civil, and meaningful dialogue about what kind of world in which we wish to live. I am particularly interested in exploring how might we reconcile the individual good and the common good, and where reconciliation isn’t possible, which should take precedence and why.

Group Marriage: Three’s a Crowd

Posted by Dale Kuehne on November 13, 2012

In a marriage, 3 is a crowd

I went to sleep thinking about you and I woke up just the same
You made it so hard for me to close my eyes
Don’t worry babe, this will be alright in the end
And I’ll be your everything

So we’ll both tell ourselves that this is for the best
But I’m depending on you to lead me through
So try to stop those hands, you’re riding down my neck
You touch, I tremble, you never were one to play fair

These past four walls won’t be the only thing that’s keeping me from you
This distance could never hold this back (I need you)
So let’s just take this time and we’ll use this for reflection
And I’ll see you in three days
And you’ll think of me when you’re next to him

Don’t mind my gasp it’s just so much harder to breathe when you’re near
You made it so hard for me to learn through my eyes
Don’t mind my asking but could I trouble you, miss, for a smile?
Just give me one last wish with a kiss
It’s what my dreams are made of

So we’ll both tell ourselves that this is for the best
But I’m depending on you to lead me through
So try to stop those hands, you’re riding down my neck
You touch, I tremble, you never were one to play fair

These past four walls won’t be the only thing that’s keeping me from you
This distance could never hold this back (I need you)
So let’s just take this time and we’ll use this for reflection
And I’ll see you in three days
And you’ll think of me when you’re next to him

So here we are again, in the same situation
I’m screaming at the top of my lungs and you’re not saying a word
Did you just say what you mean?
Why can’t you just mean what you said
When you said “No one can love you like me?”

These past four walls won’t be the only thing that’s keeping me from you
This distance could never hold this back (I need you)
So let’s just take this time and we’ll use this for reflection
And I’ll see you in three days
And you’ll think of me when you’re next to him

(We could have been beautiful)
