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?
Aye.

A question I have asked quite a few folks, and the usual answer is "I don't know, it just IS".
A weak argument if ever I saw one, laugh :-).

Well, like you said, this isn't really about persuading anyone that poly is for them, it's just about persuading them that poly can work for some people; and in that, I think, I've made some headway atleast :-p.
