I am pretty sure you just wrote what a lot of critical thinkers have thought about at one time or another. I am 39 years old who grew up Catholic and under the influence of a lot of the background you provided. I’ve come to similar conclusions about monogamy in my mind. I love the point you made about letting relationships develop into what they’re going to be and a goal of authenticity. Thank you for putting this in writing! To me it took courage and honesty to share what so many of us have thought.
