I was (infact am) having a conversation with an old friend when the topic of my relationship came up. She asked if things were going well and if I still was on the “Long Rein” - My other half and myself have a Monogmish set up (thank you Dan Savage). When I replioed things were awesome and that I did infact have the “long rein” still, I was asked why. Apparently if things are awesome we should by default have to be monogamous.
this is not the first time I have encountered this and it happens enough that I am tired of explaining that things are better now I have the option to look outside occasionally and get permission to do so than they were when I didn’t have this. Some people just aren’t meant to be monogamous. But time and again I am met with this resistance. So I’m going to throw this out there.
Why is exclusivity supposedly tied to your relationship’s success?
