MA- are you referring to all the points I suggested? Or just one, just a couple? I hadn't thought of it that way. I have never been in a relationship where my partner has conducted him/herself the way I have portrayed it in my points. Perhaps I am confusing two systems.
I was really responding to the first bullet. And the last to some degree as its a reinforcing ideology critical to monogamy's (in particular, the idea of a soul mate, one and only life partner) mass unquestioned acceptance.
