What Do You Consider Cheating?

Guy with Jealous Girl

Monogamous partners often misunderstand poly relationships and think that polys are just people who want to cheat without consequences. They’re wrong. Cheating can and does happen in any relationship(s). It’s how couples and individuals define cheating in their specific relationship (lifestyle) that matters. Any way to minimize heartache and prevent heartbreak is good in my books.

Usually polys are much more open with their views on cheating from the beginning and some primary couples will make rules or even sign poly contracts so there is no confusion later on as to what constitutes cheating.
