Since I started the thread, and used a phrase like "like marriage," let me explain what I had in mind. I did not mean that everyone would have, necessarily, to live under the same roof. I include metamours outside the house in my conception of possible "like marriage" situations. By "like marriage" I meant great love, unlimited and authentic love, and a similar level and kind of commitment. Similar, not identical, necessarily. Mainly I mean, far, far
