Wa`xami

Wa`xami is an oath taken by two citizens to live their lives together without sexual involvement with others; they will recycle together when too old to benefit the citizenry. It is an intensely intimate form of monogamy wherein two citizens agree to grow old together and die at the same time.

Waxam is not the norm. It is rare to find a Subak waxamist, and it is just as rare to find a monogamous Zaxiri. Subaki typically forming polyandrous relationships within households containing two or three couples will remain in these relationships even after their donations have moved on to caste-training. Zaxiri often bond to Hizaki as primes, bringing in their lesser significant others, emphasizing sexual gratification and recreational friendships throughout their partnership.

Waxamist feelings are most common amongst Bizaki and to a lesser extent, Marixi.

Bizaki are rarely diagnosed due to group cohabitations and highly social lifestyles. Bizaki maintain a somewhat toxic culture of sexual territoriality regarding Subaki; many individual Bizak with waxamist leanings are camouflaged in bonds where there’s more than one Bizak, or Subak.

Monogamy within Marixi is typically caught due to this castes use of Generational Bluzsh; Divisional Officers and Cit-Guard often seek sexual gratification in Genbluz where they’re assigned pairs of sexual-counselors (no single counselor is ever assigned for sexual activity); attachment to a particular therapist is flagged and treated as needed. Due to the Primary’s monogamist relationship with her deceased bond, World Oceans restrictions have become laxed; many non-bonded and enlisted are able to visit a citbluz and have multiple Zaxiri sign off on a chit claiming to have entertained her, thus closing her case.
