    Polyamory And Monogamy

    • 903 Words
    • 4 Pages

    There is a relative paucity of literature aimed at understanding individual’s perceptions regarding polyamory and monogamy practices. Rather, existing research on romantic relationships more commonly focuses on quantitatively assessing relationship satisfaction such as in Schmookler and Bursik (2007). For example, a measure in their study assessed specifics on whether a person viewed monogamy as enhancing or viewed monogamy as a sacrifice in relation to how this affected their satisfaction with their relationship. They found that people who valued emotional and sexual monogamy tended to have higher relationship satisfaction compared to people that did not value monogamy, but instead perceived it as a sacrifice. While Balzarini and colleagues…

    Moors, Conley, Edelstein, & Chopik (2015) explored the relationship between attachment and CNM. Surveying 1308 respondents (15% of which were in CNM relationships such as swinging and polyamory) the researchers found that avoidant individuals were less likely to be in a CNM with a negative correlation of -.27.

    non-monogamies including polyamory, bondage-discipline/dominance-submission/sadism-masochism (BDSM), open relationships, and swinging.

    pursuing a polyamorous relationship. I do have some biases when it comes to clients discussing this issue, although I believe that most these biases stem from a personal experience of mine. The biases are an issue in and of themselves, and I believe that these biases will cause several other issues to appear if I choose to work with a polyamorous person. With the right experiences, I think that the biases can dissipate over time (although I’m doubtful that I’ll ever be completely comfortable…

    In light of the recent widespread debate on gay marriage, polyamory has pushed its way to the periphery of public discussion. It has generally, however, been spoken of derisively, often as the negative extension of an argument against same-sex marriage—“gay marriage today, polygamy tomorrow”, you may hear from detractors of the Supreme Court’s recent decision. Does the science related to polyamory, however, back up such negative views of it? Recent research from Morrison, Beaulieu, Brockman,…
