NON-MONOGAMY

Being attracted to more than one person at the same time might present some difficulties when you try and fit in with society’s norms and acceptable categories. Various terms exist to try and express various forms of multiple relationships, such as polygamy and polyamory. Polygamy in the strictest sense refers to multiple partners in a marriage, whilst polyamory can be defined as having more than one intimate relationship at a time, with the consent of all partners involved.

Loving more than one person at a time certain calls for a unique set of values and way of looking at life and love. Polyamourists transcend the “normal” accepted boundaries and are forever challenging society to rethink categories and fixed positions. Conducting and maintaining multiple relationships certainly calls for intense negotiations, open communication and brutal self honesty.
