YES. I try to preach and practice it. Can be difficult and sometimes I have to battle my "run awaaaaaaay" instinct, but life is SO much simpler for everyone involved.
Related question: have you ever felt pressured to only pursue one kind of relationship, whether it be casual or serious, and felt like you'd be shamed if you tried to pursue another kind?
Yes and no. I used to think I could only do monogamy - as recently as last spring. I think it turns out that what I didn't like was a) being considered secondary, and b) being lied to. I've been in several open arrangements for the last couple of months and it's turned out pretty fine. So the main thing that was pressuring me was just myself. Since I've changed, my attitude towards relationships has also changed.
