Part of this forum is about looking at relationships and the issues that arise in them with the hopes to learn and improve ourselves. Just because this issue happened to arise in a monogamous relationship does not mean it can not serve as a learning point in the poly world. If we are turning a blind eye to lessons in other relatinship styles than I could argue that we have nothing to learn from swingers or people who are curious but not yet sure if they are poly. To not draw on the exeriences of the monogamous world is to decide to not draw on the vast majority of people. That's a pretty limited pool to draw on and does nothing to validate the resultant ideas and solutions to dilemas that span all relationship styles.
