2010 saw many Sugar Daddy and Sugar Baby arrangements made, and many lives changed. Merry Sugarmas to all those seeking arrangements!

To all my fellow Jews – Try to work off all the Chinese food you will be eating.
To any other Sugar Sisters- Have a great Saturday!” – Sarah
Sugars far and wide have shared their questions and experiences here this year, and we’ve heard about many interesting arrangements attempted, had, and ongoing.
Over the last 10 years, there have been some major changes in how people approach relationships, and the types of relationships people are seeking.
While serious relationships have long been (especially in Western society) validated by marriage, the number of unmarried opposite-sex couples living together rose 13% this year, as reported by the Census Bureau on Thursday. About 39% of Americans believe marriage is becoming obsolete, according to a November Pew Research poll.
While Sugar Daddy and mutually beneficial relationships have become an outright ‘phenomena‘ in countries around the world, Census data released in September showed marriage hit an all-time low at 52%. However, some believe that the old is simply becoming the new again…
For most of European history and in many places around the world, marriage was largely a business agreement made between two families who arranged the marriage of their children. Our families may no longer arrange our relationships/marriages these days, but the ways people view the importance and meaning of marriage, and relationships in general, have changed.
Here are some marriage ideas being used by some sugars in their arrangements:
Most states require couples to wait at least a few days after receiving their marriage license to have their wedding ceremony. The purpose of the marriage waiting period is to give a short time to cool off during which the parties can change their minds if they wish. One Sugar Daddy says that he likes to wait a few days after a 1st meet with a potential Sugar Baby to confirm an arrangement. “I think it’s good to wait a few days after discussing what each person expects before agreeing on an arrangement. Having a little waiting period between discussing an arrangement and agreeing to an arrangement and scheduling dates, etc., seems to reduce the number of flakes on both sides in my experience” – discreet Sugar Daddy
Only a few states still require the consummation of a marriage through sexual relations. Many have wondered if it’s possible to have a sugar daddy arrangement without ever meeting in person, nonetheless having sex. 45% of sugars polled on this blog said they would be open to a platonic sugar arrangement.
Do you think relationships are going back to being ‘arranged’, but by individuals instead of families?
