Monogamy vs. Open Relationships

From Sex Positive Magazine...

"Not long ago, (on a gay website – I believe it was Qweerty), I read an article regarding ‘The Ten Surefire Ways To Destroy A Relationship’.  And listed as the number one way was:‘have an open relationship’.  The article’s author went on to parrot the usual missives about jealousy, morality, etc.  You know, the usual guilt and negative excuses for having any relationship that is deemed different for what is thought of as “The Norm”.  And as I read this, I couldn’t help thinking that, according to this article, gay men don’t appear to be mature enough to handle relationships in the first place, whether they’re open or monogamous.  I found it especially telling that, in the comments section following the article, one reader took exception to the writer’s bold assertion about open relationships, and had the nerve to disagree with him.  The response from other readers was blistering.  They lined up to flame this reader for having the audacity to suggest that open relationships could work.  After all, there is only one way of looking at love, right?"
