Have you ever thought about a poly relationship? (NOT religious)

Any kind. 1 husband, more than 1 wife. 1 wife, more than 1 husband. multiple husbands and wives.

What do you think the pros and cons of such a lifestyle would be?

No religious arguments.

  • Its not for me, but I fully support the right of any consenting adult to marry/be involved with any (and however many) other consenting adult(s) as he/she pleases.

  • No, never. It's definitely not my thing. I really don't care what other consenting adults do though, whatever the reasons.

  • Just a thought of my DH with another women makes me jealous so I do not think I could do it. And I couldnt handle more than one husband that would be way to much stress.

  • After watching Sister Wives its something I think I could do, but then I'm jealous. I don't know if I could handle having my husband have sex with someone else, and I'd definitely not want a relationship with multiple husbands.

  • Me personally.

    No it is not something I have or would ever consider..

    One husband is more than enough to deal with for me. I have no need or want for any more headaches/heartaches/stress/worries in my life than there has to be. Adding another entire relationship into my life, would be adding more of those things.. I have no need or want for them.

    I would never consider being in a relationship that involved more than 1 wife (meaing ME.. lol). My reasons for the most part have nothing to do with sex, or sharing my husband or anything along those lines. My reality is this. There is only ONE Queen in my domain. And that Queen is me. I could never tolerate or stand another woman having any say/input or whatever in how my domain is ran. Period. Sex, I don't care, lust after my husband all you want. But don't think you can step foot into my House my home, my domain, and think you will have any say in how it is ran.. LMAO

  • I think I'd hate it...if I had multiple husbands, I'd feel like I had extra children to tend to (lol), and if there were multiple wives I'd feel like I was constantly in competition with them. I know women in those relationships claim there's no animosity or competition, but I believe that about as much as I believe fish can walk. Most women are competitive and a little drama-ridden by nature...I should know, I am one. ;-D

  • My DH and I have always talked about it, but never had one. I think it would be great to always have a parent at home with the children. But I can see the downside as well - jealousy being the big one. Oddly enough, I'm the one who first brought it up to my DH. I wouldn't want multiple husbands and wives or multiple husbands (took me forever to break in the first husband, why would I want to start from scratch all over again, lol).
