The question of how we Spaniards are in relationships arises year after year when the CIS publishes the results of its annual survey on “Post-pandemic social and affective relationships”.
That moment has arrived and with the extracted data we can affirm something without fear of being wrong: couples are changing.
41% of Spaniards would have an open relationship
The first of the data that most attracts our attention is thatl 41.4% of Spaniards agree that you can have sexual relations outside your partner without there being a sentimental bond with them. 47.4% believe that a person can maintain two or more affective-sexual relationships at the same time and 49.7% hold the opposite. With this we see that more and more people in Spain want know if they are ready for an open relationship and even with the last data, we are considering in our lives to include polyamory as a way of relating as a couple.
One more fact: almost 7 out of 10 people say that “love can do everything”, affirmation that science is not so clear if we go back to this article in which love is not the secret to happiness as a couple.
Continuing in this line of love, there is a statement with which 79% agree or strongly agree: “If you truly love, you are faithful to your partner”. We have already told you that there are excuses for infidelity as diverse as that it’s geneticbut we are not going to go into such a subject again, because the reasons for infidelity are as diverse as there are people in the world.
We want to live alone and we prefer sex without love
The number of Spaniards who agree with live alone and not with a partner to preserve their independence It also has a high figure, that of 66.4%. are the calls lat relationsand judging by the data, is another of the changes observed in the trends of couple relationships.
As for sexual relations, the big question is:sex with or without love? we could talk about the friends with benefits and how to make it workbut we give you the CIS data in which 70% of Spaniards believe in sex without love and 29% do not believe that it can exist without a connection with the other person, a percentage in which we could include the demisexuality.
And what do we Spaniards look at when it comes to having a partner or not? Well 80% would reject a partner who “is not involved in household chores”, and 70% would not continue with their partner if they did not have satisfactory sexual relations. In fact, we have already told you that lack of sex can be a reason to say leave a relationshipso this last piece of information does not catch us entirely new.
