Chris, perhaps you're thinking of the Mosuo or Na people in southwest China, who commonly practice "walking marriage" or "visiting marriage": extended matrilineal families living together, where young women get their own bedrooms and can freely invite lovers for nighttime visits. Couples don't live together and don't get formally married, and biological fathers have a much smaller role than do mothers in the lives of their children; men care for their nieces and nephews in their own family home. 'Some older Na report having upwards of 30, 40, even 50 partners throughout their lifetime" and despite these changes [towards common serial monogamy, in the face of cultural integration with the Han Chinese], "notions of exclusivity are not entrenched, and the Na language has no word for 'jealousy'."' (Wikipedia)

Will humans be extinct by 2026?

Not only humans, but many species.

It's the sixth age of mass extinction.

There are many scientific articles about this. 

Having more human [babies] and human population seems to be 'controversial.' 

Why is human population growth such a contentious subject?

Will religious groups, or economists get that over population is a problem?

Perhaps the best way to have a relationship is to not get married which appears to be a contract for ownership.

I have a friend who was married five to ten years ago. No one has heard from him since then -  including his family.

I've heard speculation that men are more likely to isolate women (wives) than women to men.

In that context where there is a dominant partner perhaps women may culpable as men often are accused to.

I haven't looked at the statistics -  either way it's despicable to isolate a person from their friends and family.

As a human species my thoughts are we are programed for monogamous serial relationships.

Having written that I read that a culture in China  allows women to take on multiple partners (sorry I don't recall the  culture).

In the current day of knowledge of sexually transmitted disease  is a hazard. 

Jealousy also is a factor with multiple partners.

To throw this another way Parental Alienation Syndrome from my reading  is usually directed from women towards men - at the child's expense.

As a 'joke'   one partner is difficult to deal with - along with the 'in-laws' and what not.

Having sexual relations with multiple partners  simultaneously may be suicidal.

...women (and men) in open marriages, ....

My wife and I were two of them.

Back to the group's topic...

FUTURE HISTORY: a murky scene, thick smog and pollution everywhere from multiple smokestacks. Two factory workers with caps and lunchboxes; one says to the other: “The great Trump regulatory rollbacks of 2017 sure showed those environmentalists who’s boss!”

Comment by Grinning Cat on August 29, 2018 at 2:09pm

There are women (and men) in open marriages, who'll hook up with people, or take on longer-term partners, with everyone's consent!

Comment by Tom Sarbeck on August 27, 2018 at 2:05pm

Actually, I’m an optimist.

Natural selection will in time do better than Homo Sapiens. They will have to do without my delightful company.

Comment by Joan Denoo on August 27, 2018 at 1:50pm

Tom, are you bragging or complaining, a "jealous husband hasn't caught you yet? 

Comment by Tom Sarbeck on August 27, 2018 at 1:39pm

Not by 2026, Joan.  I will be only 95 and I’m planning on reaching 100 before a jealous husband catches me.

Will humans be extinct by 2026?

1. "In the Arctic, vast amounts of carbon are stored in soils that are now still largely frozen. As temperatures continue to rise and soils thaw, much of this carbon will be converted by microbes into carbon dioxide or methane, adding further greenhouse gases to the atmosphere."

2. "vast amounts of methane are stored in sediments under the Arctic Ocean seafloor, in the form of methane hydrates and free gas. As temperatures rise, these sediments can get destabilized, resulting in eruptions of huge amounts of methane from the seafloor."

3. "Without sea ice, storms can also develop more easily. Storms can mix warm surface waters all the way down to the bottom of shallow seas, reaching cracks in sediments filled with ice. This ice has until now acted as a glue, holding the sediment together."

The soils, waters, sea ice, all work to create the situation so dangerous that huge eruptions can happen at any time. We can feel fortunate that extreme explosions haven't happened yet.

"As temperatures continue to rise, the risk that this will happen keeps growing."
