Comment on Conley, Moors, Matsick, and Ziegler (2012). Grounded in prior research, a framework is proposed that builds upon the authors’ findings and outlines a perspective to organize future research directions. In particular, the violation of committed relationship ideology is suggested to help explain, in part, negative perceptions of consensual nonmonogamous (CNM) relationships, as well as less favorable views of singles, and other non-normative relationships. This broader conceptual view of the authors’ findings encourages both future research on CNM relationships as well as further understanding of related phenomena stemming from relationship ideology.
