Relationships are changing. The relationships of today are far different from not just the ones our parents and grandparents knew, but even the ones people found themselves in just 10 years ago. Long gone are the days of marital necessity, and in are the days of realizing love can exist without long-term commitment where independence and freedom are what really make a person happy.

A new study by EliteSingles has found that what was once considered "normal" for relationships is no longer the case. We, as a society, are evolving and the relationship trends that are the result of this evolution are really awesome. Austrian futurologist, Prof. Reinold Popp, worked with EliteSingles to see just where we're headed with our relationships, and what we can expect to see more of in the future. Best part? Not having to share the bed every single night!
