A Huge Red Flag in LACKING's letter was her line:

his drinking (it's constant and a LOT)

I would immediately say that's a deal breaker. Having grown up in an alcoholic family, and having watched it destroy so many marriages, I would say, "You're twenty, your whole life is in front of you, YOU WILL NEVER STOP HIS DRINKING, so Run, Run as fast and as far away from his as possible. For you have no idea of the life you are in for, if you stay with him."

Definitely no expert on this Dan, but from my conversations with young lesbian friends (college age to mid twenties) the behavior that Drunk Straight Girl describes, if performed with a bi/lesbian girl (she doesn't identify that she is kissing straight girls) is quite offensive. Remember when you were single in your twenties. If some attractive guy came on to you and started making out with you, then announce, "Sorry, I'm straight." just so he could get the attention of some female, wouldn't you be offended?

Now if Drunk Straight Girl is kissing other straight girls, who cares.

I think this is all BS. People who want to cheat on their monogamous relationship by saying, "It's okay, I'm just POLY."

I think most human beings would like to date, fall in love with, and sleep with, anyone they happen to be attracted to. That ain't an orientation.

If you're going to pro-create, then monogamy has a very useful purpose of creating a stable environment for the young-uns to grow up in. It takes sacrifice, which means you can't run off and fall in love and sleep with all those other people out there that you are attracted to. Grow up.

Just my 2ยข worth.

Back when I was still an actor, about twenty years ago, we had this little traveling troupe and were doing an AIDS awareness program at colleges around Ohio. One of the things we were dealing with was the whole "choicer" attitude. So we came up with a song, whose lyrics escape me now, but the refrain was, "If Homosexuality is a choice, then choose to be gay for a week." It shut alot of people up.
