Over the years, I have been seeing increasing numbers of couples and relationships which choose to embrace non-monogamous lifestyle. They accepted unconventional view and expectations of monogamy and sexual fidelity. Many of these relationships struggle to find therapists and support in their lives, as they aspire to make their relationships succeed. While all relationships require work and investment, non-monogamous relationships have unique challenges that may amplify the difficulties.
Many of those who pursue polyamorous relationships find them to be desirable and fulfilling. Yet, when challenges arise and partners cannot solve them alone, a non-monogamous expert therapist or other mental health professionals may often be able to help partners navigate polyamory and other nonmonogamous relationship styles.
Since individuals have different preferences, they also pursue relationships in a variety of ways. Some people find a monogamous relationship style works for them. Others find that monogamy does not work for them and choose to pursue some style of nonmonogamous relationship.
Some pursue an open relationship or choose to share partners out of the desire to experience casual sex/intimacy with multiple partners. Others find they experience love and affection for multiple individuals at the same time. They may feel the need to pursue it.
As infidelity and divorce is growing, a larger number of individuals see that total monogamy for a lifetime is very challenging. This is why today more partners are looking for a more flexible structure and arrangement when it comes to their intimacy and sexuality.
While monogamy is generally still the norm in many cultures, non-monogamy is becoming increasingly recognized as a relationship style. To many, polyamory and other forms of nonmonogamy may be as natural as other people feels about monogamy.
A therapy for non-monogamous relationship led by Moshe Ratson (MBA, MS MFT, LMFT), a Licensed Couples and Marriage Therapist (LMFT) who often contacted by people seeking help in finding therapists who can suspend judgment and work with couples and help them move from where they are to where they want to be. spiral2grow welcomes individuals and couples of all sexual orientations and gender identities and hope that you will find my knowledge, experience and respect an added benefit to our work together.
An open relationship is a committed relationship in which one or both partners pursue sexual relationship outside of their partnership. Couples that has the openness and permission to have sex with whomever/whenever the couples define as OK.
Swingers – Typically defined as a couple in a committed relationship that have sex with others. Generally, both partners in the relationship will swap spouses with another couple and will exercise sex with other committed partners.
Defined as a consent to practice intimacy and romantic love with more than one partner at the same time.
As there is not a distinct line between the various form of non-monogamous relationship, I like to think of it as a continuum.
