Why not pose what would seem to me to be another obvious rhetorical option -- Are they naturally mono, but open-minded enough that they never cared to close the door on poly as a possibility for each other? That seems to me the most likely answer, really.
And why on earth use a loaded term like "pathologically"? What about monogamy, or about loving in one particular way period, deserves to be called a pathology, or in simpler language a disease????
