Not likely. She hasn't shown a willingness to actually engage in much of a conversation. She does agree that the best therapeutic journey for a couple is based on not having any underlying agenda (for example, trying to make the couple be monogamous) but I suspect she has the unconscious and conscious attachment to the idea that "monogamy is best." She flat out states as much in her article and has not been willing to budge on that in email.

The most peculair thing to me, the more I look at the article, is the continued insistence that these arrangements are monogamous at all. Calling poly or non-monogamy "the new monogamy" seems really just plain wrong to me somehow.
