When a Woman Loves Several Men, Should She Remain Silent or Speak Up?

By Philippe Combessie, John Angell

English

For a woman involved with several men, keeping secrets makes it easier to develop or continue a feeling of romance. Speaking out is sometimes seen as more honest, but it can also help hold certain lovers at a distance. It appears that neither of these attitudes is sustainable over the long term. As a result, when multi-partnership is not extended over time, hybridizations occur that are often associated with responses to different expressions of jealousy.
