YES. I am polyamorous. I have a DH and an SO (Another man) and DH has an SO as well (another woman). We do it because we have the capacity to love more than one person without taking something from the other. It has nothing to do with being perverted sex fiends, were not. It isn't about "forsaking our vows", our vows are just as important as anyone elses (and it doesn't say anything in them about forsaking others, etc lol). Its about love, commitment and respect. Humans have a grEat capacity for love...its what allows us to love our children, friends and siblings equally..as well as additioanal partners.

We are what is known as polyfidelous which means we aren't seeking any other people just the current relationships we have. There is never any group sex or threesomes.

Most all of u know all this already tho lol

I'm poly as well. I've seen poly go very bad & also go very well. Not much different than monogamy when it comes down t it. I absolutely believe that some people are fully capable of feeling romantic love for more than one person at a time.

 Nope..because I believe in the tradition of marriage between just two people. Going outside the marriage is cheating to me.

No. It defeats the whole purpose of marriage. Stay single if you still wanna screw around.

 No. A marriage is between two people. It's that the point? to make a commitment between each other? If you have a need to have sex with others or want to bring other people into your relationship, then you don't need to be married at all.

If you have kids and one day they find out that mommy and daddy have sex with ohters, do you think it will screw their views on marriage?

 

¸¸Mainstream Moms¸¸ Yep, it's a label. Come join the normal side of parenting. No AP Please.

 Nope!  Our marriage is between the two of us and the two of us only.  If we wanted the option of being with other people we wouldn't have gotten married.
