This. Essentially.

The vast majority of us have many decades of social programming that basically treats monogamy as the only acceptable mode of a relationship. By being poly, we're going against that and that causes a lot of stress because we're social animals and we've genetically been hardwired to want to follow social programming. In the way-back-when, it kept us alive.
