Yes, I think that is a good idea. It's not the best wording. It's hard to put my finger on how to say it without sounding judgemental and negative.

I guess some history of monogamy might be helpful and of non-monogamy....

Not all monogamous people operate according to the list I posted. It is a list I came up with from being on here and reading peoples stories. I realize that mono people can and do operate from other perspectives also, and that poly people operate from different perspectives... I am thinking along the lines of what common philosophies can poly and mono people come together and create healthy and happy relationships... I am hoping that I figure out at least one. lol
