Couple Privilege

Definition - What does Couple Privilege mean?

Couple privilege is the concept that a traditional, monogamous, and enduring pair bond, typically between a man and woman, is the most significant, worthy, and desirable form of relationship. Societies may place higher status and otherwise confer rewards and recognition on this type of relationship to the detriment or outright exclude of other types of relationships.

Kinkly explains Couple Privilege

Alternative relationship communities may use this terminology to explore the social, political, financial, and legal advantages of this type of partnering to the exclusion of others.
