Are You Monogamish? [View all]

Last edited Tue Jul 23, 2013, 08:51 PM - Edit history (2)

Monogamish - Couples who are mostly monogamous and who are perceived to be monogamous but who aren't 100% monogamous. Such couples have an expressed understanding that allows for some amount of sexual contact outside the relationship.

Obviously, I don't expect too many people to vote in this poll but since more Anthony Weiner texts have popped up (excuse the pun), and since we don't really know what type of relationship he and his wife have agreed to, I thought people should know that not every relationship works the same.
