Default "couple-centric?"

You reply that it is the responsibility of the person you are dating to manage their other relationships. Assuming that person and all their other relationships are already openly poly, one could call that a reasonable policy. Let's say though that you are interested in dating a member of a previously only mono couple that have not even yet had a poly discussion between them. Given the stigma many members of mono-minded couples feel about asking a partner permission to enter a poly situation, wouldn't you be worried that you may be initiating a relationship based on sneaking around the other mono partner?
