A new study found that gay millennials prefer monogamy over other types of relationships.

Around 89 percent of gay men age 25 and under prefer monogamy, according to PinkNews. That is slightly lower than their older counterparts, of which 93 percent of 26- to 30-year-olds and 92 percent of those over 31 prefer monogamy.

Couple Lanz Lowen and Blake Spears asked over 832 gay males about their dating habits and wants. The couple has been in a non-monogamous relationship for 36 years and wanted to see what trends affected younger dating couples.

“We had been in a non-monogamous relationship for 36 years and were curious about the experience of others,” the researchers wrote on the study’s website. “There wasn’t any roadmap and we assumed long-term couples might offer valuable perspectives and hard-earned lessons.”

For monogamy, 58 percent of people surveyed said the term was the same thing as marriage.

The study included 632 men identified as monogamous, 152 identified as “monogamish” and 48 identified as non-monogamous according to PinkNews. In an effort to make the sides as even as possible, 58 percent of the participants were couples while 42 percent were single.
