6 Zodiac Signs Most Likely To Be In Monogamous Relationships.

Monogamy is no longer the only option when it comes to relationships. There are open marriages, committed relationships without marriage, polyamorous relationships, and various other combinations. Yet, even with all the choices out there, some people still choose to be in monogamous relationships.

Does the choice of monogamy have to do with astrology? While it’s impossible to predict if someone will choose a monogamous relationship over a polyamorous relationship, the monogamous zodiac signs are more likely to stick to tradition.

You might be in a monogamous relationship and realize it’s not for you, or you might experiment with a polyamorous relationship and find that you’re too jealous to be comfortable with your partner being with other people. It can be hard to predict what any of us is going to want at any time.

Traditionally, people have been in monogamous relationships, so if you’re more old school or have certain religious values, you’re going to be more inclined to be monogamous. Monogamy doesn’t mean boring or passionless; it just means committing to only one person, and it can be just as exciting and fulfilling as any other kind of relationship.

1. VIRGO (August 23 - September 22)

Virgos work very hard on their relationships and give their whole heart. A Virgo would have trouble being in a relationship with more than one person. They're practical and they don't enjoy when things get too complicated.

This zodiac sign tends to be more on the traditional side of relationships, and it would be challenging to get them to open their minds or open their relationships. Another thing is that, at their core, Virgos believe in being faithful and committed to one person.

2. LEO (July 23 - August 22)

Leos would do better in a monogamous relationship. They love people, but as far as a committed and intimate relationship goes, Leo would struggle if more than one other person was involved.

They take their commitments seriously and can be prone to jealousy. It would put too much of a strain on the relationship if Leo was forced to share their partner, and it might cause them to be more possessive than usual. To get a Leo to agree to a polyamorous relationship would take a lot of time and energy, and even then, they probably wouldn't be into it.

3. LIBRA (September 23 - October 22)

Libras prefer to focus their love and attention on just one partner. If more people are involved in a relationship, there are more opportunities for misunderstandings, fights, and people getting hurt.

Monogamy seems like a safer bet for Libra. Give them some old-fashioned romance and they're happy. They don't want to have to compete for attention or love. There's too much drama for Libra in a polyamorous relationship.

4. PISCES (February 19 - March 20)

No matter how open-minded and free-spirited Pisces might be, monogamy is a better fit for them. Pisces can be overly sensitive and having a relationship with more than one person could be an emotional overload.

They might not know how to deal when conflicts happen or jealousy arises. In addition, Pisces are selfless, so they might get so busy with making sure everyone else got what they wanted, that their own needs might be overlooked.

5. CANCER (June 21 - July 22)

Cancers do relationships really well and make sure their partner feels loved, cared for, and comfortable. Cancers tend to be faithful, loving, and protective.

A monogamous relationship is a better fit for Cancer because when they feel threatened, they can get clingy, suspicious, and see hurts where there are none. There are too many hidden emotional traps in a polyamorous relationship for Cancer to be able to navigate it.

6. CAPRICORN (December 22 - January 19)

While Capricorn does have a very sexual side to them, they also can have very traditional values and are somewhat conservative — at least financially. Capricorns are wise, faithful, and practical. The strength of the foundation of their relationship and building a family are very important to them.

They like things that have stood the test of time and, for them, monogamy works well. On the flip side, there's that voracious Capricorn sexual appetite, so polyamory may not be entirely out of the question.
