"Non-Monogamy and Socio-Economic Class" at Baltimore Playhouse!

Non-Monogamy and Socio-Economic Class: Sustain Healthy Relationships within a Social Justice Framework

Whether we want to admit it or not, the very ability to practice non-monogamy is a privilege, significantly impacted by socio-economic class. Despite what society would have us believe, we are neither more or less deserving of love and intimacy based on our financial capital. This concept alone can feel impossible to unlearn within a monogamous relationship structure; now, consider individuals who participate in alternative relationship structures that contain three or more individuals.

Within this course, we will seek to:

Discuss how and why non-monogamy benefits from wealth
Identify the sacrifices that non-monogamous people make in order to onboard new partners and maintain consistent relationships

Acknowledge the impact of capitalism on HOW we date, taking care to include specifications for marginalized communities and how capitalism tells them they're unworthy of relationships

Discuss how we can move away from capitalist relationship models where funds hold the most perceived value

Come up with non-monogamous dating "hacks" that are accessible to marginalized communities and work towards re-balancing the system

Discuss alternative definitions of "value" that one can bring to a relationship, and how non-monogamous "families" can use creative divisions of labor based on what each individual uniquely brings to the table to create and sustain value, & more!
