Basically any relationship that falls outside the general definition of a "normal monogamous relationship"?

What do you consider yourself? What are the general rules and boundaries? How does it work for you?

I am polyamorus. It means I have loving romantic relationships with more than one person. I am straight. I have been married for almost 12 years, and I have been with my boyfriend for a year. My relationships are separate but equal.

Yes both my husband and boyfriend know about each other and are actually friendly.

Always been monogamous, but every cheater I've known (male and female) has been EXTREMELY jealous.   My swinger friends love it, but they only fool around with other people when both of them are present.  My poly friends just split, they were miserable the whole time they were polyamorous.  She even called me crying once about her boyfriend talking to another girl!  They had a really good relationship too in the beginning, but after becoming "open" both became uber jealous and it was a competition.

Does your husband have a girlfriend?  I find the concept intriguing, but have never known a couple personally who's relationship fared well.

My husband is into bdsm. I am vanilla. He has play partners to get those needs meet. He sort of has a girlfriend. But they are the early stages of their relationship.

We have rules and boundaries.

My boyfriend is monogamous

Sounds like a solution to incompatibility in sexual tastes...Glad it works for you guys.

I'm poly. I have 2 husbands (of course not legally...maybe one day). Hm, I just reread the OP and I'm thinking this doesn't apply to me lol. I'm only with my two men and they're only with me. There will be hell to pay if there was any cheating going on between any of us.
