There seems to be a misunderstanding when it comes to the notion of being in a relationship. I’m referring to having a significant other. You know one plus one equals two.
The concept of binary centers on, according to its vocab, “relating to, using, or expressed in a system of numerical notation that has 2 rather than 10 as a base” or “relating to, composed of, or involving two things.” Then, what we consider a binary relationship is “when two entities participate and is the most common relationship degree”–credit Google for that.
So, to apply binary in a relationship–this means that the base or the core of a relationship equals to “something having two parts.” Simple enough, right?
The cliche goes “it takes two.” According to Rob Base and DJ Eazy Rock:
It takes two to make a thing go right. It takes two to make it out of sight.
So, we’ve been programmed to believe that in order for a relationship to go right, it requires this binary. As in, “two parts makes a whole,” or “I am nothing, nothing if I don’t have you” (Whitney Houston), or the most popular “You complete me.”
What if the binary isn’t the requirement? Just what if, a singular entity that is steadfast and strong on its own foundation standing along side another singular base (separate and on its own foundation) leads to make all things go right?
