The Case Against Monogamy
Why is everyone so surprised about Tiger Woods? When it comes down to it, monogamy doesn't always work.

Good stuff.

Who's this Tiger Woods character and why should I care about him?
Concern yourself less with love and more with loving.

Default I like......

I have to admit I like the way she approached the article and I find I like the way many writers that don't have a big "Poly" banner attached to their side.
Straightforward and simple. Monogomy is simply not the only CHOICE - or even the best one in many circumstances.
If that simple fact was taught & accepted - in say 8th grade - we'd have a lot less "cheating", broken homes and general disaster. it would be a topic that needed to arise almost on a first date with anyone and certainly after any relationship had been established for long enough to get in a "rut".
Simple is best. SO is honesty.
