You can be in a monogamous relationship with a FWB, but have no emotional attachment. It just means you agree not to have sex with anyone else. Monogamy alone doesn't imply an emotional connection.
As well, it's possible to have a relationship, which denotes an emotional connection, but which is not monogamous. While I think we all agree that most people are going to ASSUME that a relationship implies monogamy (and it does), that doesn't mean that some people don't work out other arrangements that work for them. While that percentage isn't huge, it's probably a lot more common than most people would think.
This is why I so strongly encourage people to TALK about this stuff with their partner, and set expectations EARLY, so there is no confusion and no hurt feelings because of incorrect assumptions.2THIS IS NOT RELEVANT ANYMORE
