I agree - I'm not in this world to try to convince someone to change their feelings about something they want to do in their own lives because I respect their choices. However, this is about finding acceptance of our way of thinking, while allowing folks to be monogamous if they desire, is it not?

A question I have asked quite a few folks, and the usual answer is "I don't know, it just IS". Trying to apply logic to discussions about matters of the heart is often futile, in my experience.
