Only You. And You. And You.Polyamory—relationships with multiple, mutually consenting partners—hasa coming-out party.By Jessica Bennett | Newsweek Web ExclusiveJul 29, 2009http://www.newsweek.com/id/209164
The article is about a poly... what I would call "cluster," which has always seemed so messy to me. Is it more typical to have a "Big Love" family, where there are defined relationships and a measure of stability, or is the "cluster" type, with everyone dating outside the relationship as needed, the more common type of poly relationship?I want poly. I want stability. The first is hard enough, and based on this article, it is looking as if the second is an impossibility. I see the ability of having a poly family as the ability to create a larger nuclear family. It seems to me that if you are developing romantic relationships outside of the family, then your attention and focus has been split too.
""I believe that someone's sexual orientation is a deeper issue than the number of people they want to express that orientation with." In other words, polyamory is a choice; homosexuality is not."Intresting, because if you look at the world without ethno-centric christian blinders you would think the complete opposite. Monogamy is a 'choice'. I mean really...you CHOOSE to get 'married' and 'settle down'.
