There’s an excellent article over at the New York Times discussing the idea of non-monogamous relationships, and how, for some couples, they may work better than traditional strict monogamy.
The piece focuses on the views of Dan Savage (the man behind the amazing It Gets Better Project), and exemplifies something we need more of – good, rational ideas about relationships. Unlike so many religious views, Savage worries about the things that really matter, i.e. whether the people involved in a relationship are honest, happy, and healthy. If a couple agrees that marriage with infidelity fulfills their needs, then that’s great for them.
