Anonymous asked: Isn't it a little weird that a one-on-one marriage is taken as a default, privileged state? I mean, a lot of these "polyamorous" people are being assholes because it's clear from the asks that this is making at least one of the people involved in the relationship uncomfortable. But are we discounting "non-traditional marriages" or relationships as having value here?
We are not discounting non-traditional relationships. If you have an agreement with your partner that allows for polyamorous or other non-traditional relations, that is chill. What is not chill is when two people enter what is believed to be a monogamous relationship, and one of them goes off and hooks up with someone else. That is a very unchill super asshole move that is a betrayal of trust in the relationship.
I agree with this except, sometimes people assume they’re relationship is monogamous, even after only a few dates. that’s a different situation I guess, but it is considered a default by lots of people.
