Agamy refers to a social condition
wherein marriage, in any form, is not recognized. It is rooted to the
Greek city, Agami. In this condition or state, marriage is not a
social institution. There are no rules on marriage -- no regulations on how to get married and dissolve marriages. It is not
prescribed to people who have sexual or romantic relations.
More About Agamy
Today, marriage is recognized as a
legal institution in practically every country worldwide. Agamy
exists only in small social groups. These groups are likely to
practice polyamory. Within a polyamorous group, marriage is seen as
too restrictive. It is bound by too many rules. It is understandable
why they would choose to not recognize it as part of their lifestyle.
