YouGov released a study today that revealed some pretty surprising results about millennials and their ideal and current relationships. Only 51 percent of people under 30 years old reported that their ideal relationship is completely monogamous, and 60 percent report that the relationship they’re in is completely monogamous.
Instead of dichotomizing relationship types as either polyamorous (AKA non-monogamous) and monogamous, YouGov analyzed relationship-type on a 7-point spectrum similar to the Kinsey scale. They defined zero as completely monogamous and six as completely non-monogamous.
Not super surprisingly, the desire to be more non-monogamous increased with each younger generation. Seventy percent of people 65 and over said that their ideal relationship type would be completely monogamous, whereas 63 percent for people ages 45-64, 58 percent people for people 30-44, and the 51 percent as mentioned above for those under 30 years old.
