Have you heard of ashleymadison.com? It’s one of several dating site for marrieds looking for an extramarital affair—but only with other marrieds. Its slogan is “When monogamy becomes monotony.” A slew of people must be pretty bored, as they have more than a million members. Anyway, I happened upon its glossary, loaded with words (and concepts) I had yet to hear. Maybe because I’m out of the loop. Or maybe because I’m not looking to add to my collection of husbands. (I have just a single husband to date. He must be lonely.)
Anyway, my favorite word in the glossary is “polyfidelity.” Definition: Closed relationship involving more than two people. The members of a group marriage, for example, may limit their sexual/romantic involvement to members of the group.
Huh. Does that mean there are three people to fight over who should clean the bathroom?
