I totally get where your opinion comes from then, my friend. I guess I have a hard time relating to that level of "restriction" within any type of relationship. It's just not my experience with most monogamous relationships....but I have seen the extremes of isolation as well. That was individual faults and not the fault of a relationship approach though. Thanks for clarifying
