Not that rare to me. My ex and I were like that, and a lot of people we knew in our circle (all straight mono couples, openly flirty with others and "bringing it home"). But we also were part of a large group that used to take lots of relationship and communication workshops, so we weren't really all that uptight about certain things (within our mono world). We just considered it a sign of maturity and acceptance.
