When polyamory and monogamy coexist when you look at the exact same relationship.

Like other mixed-orientation relationships, poly/mono or mono/poly relationships include people with differing identities or practices—in this instance, one monogamist that is intimately exclusive with one partner, and another polyamorist who’s or perhaps is looking for partners that are multiple the ability and consent of all worried. From the polyamorist’s viewpoint, the relationship is poly/mono, and through the monogamist’s perspective it really is mono/poly—either means, this means negotiating relationship boundaries that appear uncommon at the very least, and perhaps strange, to individuals who are accustomed to mainstream (serially monogamous) relationships.

In many (or even all) poly/mono relationships, the monogamous individual gets the choice to have additional lovers and chooses never to do this for a variety of reasons. Often they simply try not to feel because they are monogamous by orientation and simply do not desire multiple partners, and others because of specific life circumstances like it, some. The unifying factor is that the monogamous individual understands about and consents into the poly person’s outside relationships but chooses to not have outside relationships of the very own.
