Serial monogamy is what most people are referring to when they say monogamy. I would say the rare and elusive creature would be the life long, single partner (as in has only had one partner ever) monogamist. I also am assuming there is never any extramarital sex, only had one partner, only kissed one person, only ever felt romantic love for one person... for their entire life.

I'm sure in some very rare circles when they say monogamy they mean "only one lover, ever" but in common usage we are actually talking about serial monogamy.
