That acting on it is GREAT, as long as everyone's on board, honest with themselves and each other, etc. And people aren't always like that.

I don't mean to hijack the focus of this thread, but since you are the OP of the thread and you said this, I feel compelled to point out that this does not explain why you think poly and mono relationships have a "different dynamic". Either way, the people should have trust, be "on board, honest with themselves and each other, etc." and in either mono or poly situations, "people aren't always like that". So, this does not explain what, other than the number of people involved, you find to be "different" about the dynamics.

I am glad to hear that you and your daughter got out on your own ok.
