Questioning Monogamy with Molly Roden Winter

In the west, monogamy is our default relationship model. But, to be clear, monogamy is a social construct. It is not inherent to our biology. 

That’s an important fact to keep in mind throughout today’s conversation with New York Times Best Selling author, Molly Roden Winter, whose recent book “More: A Memoir of Open Marriage,” documents her journey through non-monogamy. 

In this episode, you’ll learn: 

  • Why humans adopted monogamy as our dominant relationship construct (the answer is grim).
  • The surprising response she got from her therapist about opening up her marriage. 
  •  Her advice on how to initiate a conversation with your partner about non-monogamy, should you be inclined.
