Monogamy And The Rules Of Love

Ep 1/1

Monday 19 August



What's monogamy got to do with love? We assume they go together but how important really is sexual exclusivity? What happens when couples challenge this ideal?

Does monogamy still have a place in a society where choice is everything? Jo Fidgen asks why people are still so wedded to the ideal, if not always the practice. Does true love really demand sexual fidelity and what happens when people choose to open up their relationships?
