I admit, I shot my mouth off without having read the article. I'm usually skeptical when I think there could be an ulterior motive. And, while it may be true that few people can do poly in a healthy way, I would say that few people seem to be able to do any kind of relationship in a healthy way, LOL. But she does have a financial interest in promoting monogamy and the idea of finding The One.
