One thing I've already figured out from a lot of the threads I've read here is that numbers aren't always the real issue. Seems a lot of threads have people asking for advice and getting solutions for problems that are the same as in monogamous relationships (e.g. having a disrespectful/manipulative/abusive/unconnecting partner) or are self-issues where intimate relationships are just one of many facets of life being affected.
