Thanks for all of your comments Matthew Smith. I couldn’t agree with you more that love is love and whatever flavor works for you (that’s consensual) should be acceptable. The term ethical non-monogamy refers to a type of relationship paradigm where all parties are being treated respectfully, and that enthusiastic consent to the arrangement has been given by everyone involved. It’s another word for polyamory, but one that highlights the elements of honesty and individuality.

And monogamy is great too — if that’s what makes you both happy. ❤️
