Many people who are living in polyamorous relationships are married and deeply committed to their marriage partners as well as to their other love interests. Emotional maturity and honesty are sacrosanct in polyamory. People who choose this lifestyle are bucking the familial and moral norm of the social construct. They are releasing the dream of the white-picket-fence relationship model that most of us grew up with and creating a new dream, one of more open, honest loving in unlimited ways.Actually, there are poly people living in homes with white picket fences. Poly people are everywhere, even if they don’t tell everyone they are poly.
Polyamory is a nonmonogamous relationship style but it's actually more about sharing love and emotional intimacy with more than one partner than it is about sex. With open hearts and clear communication, sex is an option, not a requirement, of polyamory.That’s a great way of putting it.
Polyamory is an option. Strict monogamy is an option. There are many honest, ethical options, and our laws should not punish consenting adults from choosing one option over another.
