It means knowing you have the ability to love multiple people.

I have no idea how monogamy became so popular and so established in society and history. It is equated with morality, loyalty, doing the right thing, being Biblical, being correct, with true love as opposed to being untrue, and all that is good about relationships. And actually none of that is necessarily true. Even the ancient Hebrews took more than one spouse.
Blame the catholics...those guys screwed up everything

I suppose all of this is very nice but doesn't take social realities into consideration? I've lived with my wife for 17 years now, and we're both nearing sixty. I don't have any illusions about finding someone else to love if I leave her. Women are sweet to old men, but treat us like their fathers. I suppose it must be absurd that an old man should want to act like a young man, try to - I don't know. Follow my heart, I guess.
As a guy into D/s you might be surprised at how many women love older men. There are entire sexual and romantic fetishes built around age difference. There are lots of women interesting in 50 to 60 something men might just have to know where to look.
