SYMBIOTIC MARRIAGE

Type of marriage or relationship where two partners are co-dependent on each other for the satisfaction of particular personal (emotional) needs. These needs in lots of cases are somewhat strange and couldn't be otherwise satisfied in other partnership.

SYMBIOTIC MARRIAGE: "Example: In order to engage in swinging, partners are usually in symbiotic marriage, because if both of partners don't share this type of need, partnership would quickly be broken."
