Would You Marry Twice?
By WakeUpSnooze • 2 weeks ago

Our boy Rudeus has been having a rough go of it lately in Mushoku Season 2. I won't get into spoilers but let's just say he has reason to be depressed after some "Mission failed, we'll get em' next time" type scenarios. Thankfully he has no shortage of women around to cheer him up, especially in the form of Roxy who uses the opportunity to take advantage of him sexually. Ok listen in context it makes more sense and doesn't come across quite as horrible sounding. Anyway, after Roxy helps Rudy pull through his spell of reasonably acquired depression he realizes he loves her (which has already been pretty much established previously) even though he's married to Sylphie, AKA the GOAT. Unsure of what to do, he finds himself stagnated until Elinalise (Sylphie's grandma) encourages Rudeus to marry both.

I'm not coming for this show's head or anything, consenting people can do whatever and they've already explained how this fantasyland operates differently culturally than ours (as it should). For the sake of discussion though, would y'all ever consider marrying two people? For me it's an easy no off rip. I'm a pretty recluse person. Hanging out with people can drain my social battery quickly and then I need time to recharge. I don't see a possibility of myself being able to handle emotionally supporting two women at once. Plus even if I did try to, the constant worry of subconsciously or consciously prioritizing one over the other would drive my ass crazy. If we sweeten the deal by locking down the fact that the two hypothetical women in question are goodhearted people like Roxy and Sylphie that truly love me, it does force me to pause and consider it. However, I still think the addition of another person would place more burden on my introverted self than the anticipated benefits.

I do understand how she made a persuasive argument though.

This is coming from a guy who doesn't even really understand the concept of love outside of family and hobbies though. Perhaps one day I'll have to re-evaluate my opinion after finding two girls that are so ridiculously bussing I'd love to settle down with both. Somehow though despite a complete lack of experience, I'm fairly confident that polygamy ain't for me. Did you watch Mushoku Tensei: Jobless Reincarnation this season? What are your thoughts on polygamy? Would you marry two or more people if they all agreed? Fall in love, do it again, and breathe a sigh of relief that this other world condones multiple marriages in the comments below!
