Also, there's the issue of how to deal with "breakups" in a mixed mono/poly
cohousing context.  If a member of a monogamous couple "cheats", how
does this impact the community relationships.  I've seen this issue
divide people in workplaces, where it really has no bearing.  In a co-
housing community, it could be very sticky.
