Being Poly

There are a lot of popular misconceptions and negative connotations when it comes to alternative lifestyles. It is unfortunate however always amusing to see how mainstream America processes the glimpses of the lives of others. Polygamy is simply the practice or condition of having more than one spouse. This is usually but not limited to a man having more than one woman who is considered his wife. Configurations can vary depending on the participants. A woman may decide to live her life with 2 husbands. Two or more couples may decide on cohabitation and therefore consider themselves married to "the group". Unless it is a case of a dominant/submissive (D/S) household or certain religious/cultural subsets of this mindset, participants do not indulge in a marital hierarchy. The idea that a woman participating in a polygamist relationship conceding to be on anything other than equal standing to her life partners is just some fantastical and delusional shit. The draw of these alternate communities is the concept of true and uninhibited partnership, enhanced intimacy and sharing; and a broader sense of community within family. Like most things "different", it is an acquired taste and most certainly not for everyone. There is a show on Showtime that has tried to expose regular folks to the joys and struggles of this particular life choice, but it has still been sexed up and dumbed down for the masses.

    Poly=more than one
    Amorous=the state of loving
