Who I Work With
Non-monogamous relationships have always been a part of civilized life. Yet non-monogamy has also evolved rapidly the last 50 years. It’s entered the mainstream in many societies, although within legal limits and various cultural constraints.
Realities of non-monogamy
Yet non-monogamous people are most often raised in monogamy-oriented households, or within that dominant culture. Therefore, for many, managing the realities of non-monogamy can take years to grasp, much less practice “ethically.”
Ethical non-monogamy (ENM) is a functional framework. However, it requires impeccable transparency and detailed, customized and properly modifiable agreements. ENM tries to eliminate ‘cheating’ (the covert outsourcing of sex and/or emotional fulfillment) with tireless personal integrity. Integrity means consistently saying and doing the same thing.
ENM is a continuous personal development process – whether you begin adult relational life non-monogamously, or transition to it.
