Wasn't so much an assumption that everyone is married (because I don't) and I don't assume everyone has a primary - but at some point a new person will come into an established relationship. The new person may or may not want to approach the SO or OSO or OSO's SO or what have you. If a 4th wants to come into an established triad or V - at some point someone's going to say (even if in their head) "Hey - I like so and so - I should probably check with their SO(s) about that"
So no assumption on marriage or couples or anything - I just don't like the term SO... so I don't use it
