Loki and Skadi?

Post # 1
I'm trying to find the myth on why Skadi and Loki don't get along but nothing has turned up. Do any of you have links or would like to share why they don't like each other?

Skadi was very grim. She never liked to laugh. The Aesir were set upon making her laugh after killing her father. Loki took it upon himself to muster up to the task. He thought a bit of personal humor was best, so while Skadi sat and watched him.. he, erh, tied his manhood to a rope and tied the end of the rope to a goats beard. The goat and him struggled in a weird sick play of "tug of war", with him often emitting yells and screams. This much delighted Skadi (as I don't imagine anyone could watch this without laughing) and she took him into her lap. The two of them became intimately involved afterwards. She assumed it was a serious relationship and that Loki would wed her, but upon finding out he had no interest in doing so and was already taken- she was furious with him.

She never forgave him. She was the one who placed the snake above him, when he was chained, so that it would drip venom on him and torment him- because she felt he had tormented her. She is very bitter towards Loki about it.

Wow,that's harsh. Anyways it's not like Loki hasn't had a affair before. He was with Angroboda, then he was with Sigyn. So yes he has had more than one wife.

Marriage meant something different for them than it would for (part of) us nowadays. Polyamory wasn't stigmatised whereas adultery was. I'm mostly sure Loki having two (in some thoughts, three) wives wasn't considered adultery. Skadi seemed to have a different take on things, so it just goes to show that there are differences on the views of relationships even within the various cultures of the Gods.

Well, to tack onto what you were saying Eissy- a lot of the UPG and PCPG I read about Jotnar in general explains that they tend to be very polygamous. They don't have the same kind of concepts about relationships where it's only two partners. I guess they tend to be a little more "open" in that regard.

However, I think within this specific story Skadi took the intamacy with Loki as Loki showing intent to be with her. But he up and left, without even being in any kind of relations with her, immediately afterwards. I think that's perhaps where the bitterness of the whole affair stems from. Keep in mind Skadi is also an ice-jotun, who tend to be a little less receptive to this kind of thing (in general) and can be possessive.

Loki: Well, this has been pleasant. I'll be going now.

Skadi: Wait, what? You just got here. You're not staying?

Loki: Nope.

Skadi: You don't care about me?

Loki: Nope.

Skadi: How dare you!!

Do you have a source on the intimacy of their relationship? All I have read simply mentions the goat, and then Skadi laughing and trying to have a relationship with Njordr.
