People in this community say many who live this way are still in the closet.
Yes, many are because of prejudice and discrimination against nonmonogamous relationships.
"I think it's something we should accept about each other and if there's people who are into that kind of thing, great," said sex and relationship coach Julia Saunders.
Good for her.
"I think if three people want to get married, why not," said Mark Bentley Cohen, who lives in a non-monogamous marriage with his wife Lianna Walden.
There's no good reason to deny this freedom to marry.
Researchers who study family relationships have concerns about what these arrangements mean for children. They worry the fluidity of polyamorous love directly counteracts the stability that is important for children's formative years.
Uh, allowing them to legally marry is likely to increase stability, even if people choose not to marry, because it will help reduce the discrimination against such families. Let's get real here. Many people are having children in unstable relationships that claim to be monogamous. An adult, regardless of gender, sexual orientation, race, or religion, should be free to share love, sex, residence, and marriage (or any of those without the others) with any and all consenting adults, without prosecution, bullying, or discrimination.
