Can gay men be monogamous? The short answer is yes, absolutely, but it takes some work. Several relationship studies have been conducted on gay male couples, and they’ve reached the same conclusion: about 50% of gay male couples are monogamous the other 50% allow for sex outside of the relationship. In both groups, stability and happiness levels are the same.
While the LGBTIQ community has scored key victories in recent times with regards to same-sex marriage in some countries, numerous gay people still advocate the concept of the non-monogamous or ‘open relationship’.
