I felt this was a good, even handed, goal oriented approach that redirected the concerns into informed understanding and support. I think the author's monogamous lifestyle could also create a point of relatability for a worried monogamous family member. There is plenty of good information, anecdotes, and reassurances that will go a long way in furthering the conversation where possible.
Yes the author is monogamous but I think she is dishonest in not presenting the full picture of the devastation this can cause in people's lives and the damage that it can do to a partner's self worth.
Having read extensively on this topic online, I remain unconvinced that this is anything more than a way to dodge intimacy and responsibility, to avoid being truly "seen"- favored by smug, Silicon Valley Peter Pans and their undoubtedly codependent partners.
If your partner is trying to browbeat you into this, please know that you deserve better. You deserve to feel like you are enough for your partner. Listen to your gut.
