Relationship anarchy refers to the
practice of not following societal norms or society-dictated rules
when it comes to having a relationship. The couple or multiple people
involved in the relationship decide on defining their relationship,
as well as regulating personal expectations and actions. People
who abide by relationship anarchy do not identify themselves with the usual labels, such as ‘in a relationship,’ ‘friends,’ and the
like. Likewise, the relationship does not need to be distinguished as
sexual, platonic, or romantic.
More About Relationship Anarchy
A relationship anarchy is governed only
by terms agreed to by the people involved. The key is that all
parties agree on the definition and terms of the
relationship. It is not anarchy if only one side of the relationship
knows about what going on. That’s just being inconsiderate of the
feelings and expectations of others.
