Polly Signs Off, For Now

As I previously reported, Polly decided to pull the plug on her excellent blog giving insight into life in the kind of polyamorous family you might have next door in a quiet suburb; the kind of family you might find behind a white picket fence, playing on their lawn.

She has just put up her last message at the current blog.
...I am still the wife of two loving men, the mother of four wonderful children, and we are living our lives openly and happily. We are still here.

She goes on...
I can attest that families with more than one partner can work, and they can work well. Our children are thriving with the additional support and attention that comes with having more than two parents who care for them. Their grades are good, they are healthy, and they laugh a lot. The adults in the family appreciate the support we provide for each other as well, both in our careers and our home lives. We enjoy a greater level of financial stability than many other large families, we have many hands to assist with household tasks, and we rely on each other emotionally and intellectually as spouses.

We are "out" at work, at church, and in our personal lives. This has been difficult at times, but ultimately worth it. Being ourselves has been freeing and much more healthy than being closeted.

She goes on to give some warnings and advice, and lists some of their victories.

I'm looking forward to her book.

To prevent spam, comments will have to be approved, so your comment may not appear for several hours. Feedback is welcome, including disagreement. I only delete/reject/mark as spam: spam, vulgar or hateful attacks, repeated spouting of bigotry from the same person that does not add to the discussion, and the like. I will not reject comments based on disagreement, but if you don't think consenting adults should be free to love each other, then I do not consent to have you repeatedly spout hate on my blog without adding anything to the discourse.

If you want to write to me privately, then either contact me on Facebook, email me at fullmarriageequality at protonmail dot com, or tell me in your comment that you do NOT want it published. Otherwise, anything you write here is fair game to be used in a subsequent entry. If you want to be anonymous, that is fine.

IT IS OK TO TALK ABOUT SEX IN YOUR COMMENTS, BUT PLEASE CHOOSE YOUR WORDS CAREFULLY AS I WANT THIS BLOG TO BE AS "SAFE FOR WORK" AS POSSIBLE. If your comment includes graphic descriptions of activity involving minors, it's not going to get published.
