I think it's up to the individuals involved. I am not against them, but I find them curious. I've never fully understood why one would want to be in a "committed" relationship while still dating/ sleeping with other people. Why not just keep dating until you're ready, if ever, to settle down with one person?
But I don't judge. I can see the appeal of of multiple partners. Variety is the spice of life, right?
