How Do Monogamous And Consensually Non-Monogamous Relationships Compare? (Video)

Studies have found that people overwhelmingly rate monogamous relationships
as superior to consensually non-monogamous relationships on virtually every
dimension you can think of [1]. For example, monogamy is seen as promoting
better relationship quality in terms of enhancing intimacy, safety,
honesty, and communication. Even on qualities that have nothing to do with
relationship functioning, such as paying taxes on time and taking a daily
multi-vitamin, monogamy is seen as better for promoting them. Do people’s
perceptions match up with reality, though? Are people in monogamous
relationships necessarily much better off?
