Polyamory married and dating watch
No matter what, you must be prepared to be nice to your partner’s partners, just as they’d better be nice to you.
It is never excusable to treat your lover’s lover with hostility, nor should your partner tolerate it if someone they’re dating disrespects you in any way.
Loving your poly partner for who they are means that you’ll also accept their desire to have multiple relationships.
Though my partner wasn’t thrilled about non-monogamy from the get-go, he wanted me to live a full life.
But upon experiencing the joys of polyamory, he changed his mind and we’ve been happily non-monogamous ever since.
My ex-boyfriend’s wife (my former metamour) tried polyamory out, but it wasn’t her thing.
We all just want to be our harmless selves in peace, don’t we?
My partner of seven years wasn’t so crazy about non-monogamy when I first expressed a desire for it.
The bad news is that mono/poly relationships are not easy.
Sure, it took a little easing into after years of mononormative cultural conditioning.
But at this point, after so many years of being poly, monogamy is almost as alien to me as polyamory is to strictly monogamous people.
Mono/poly relationships challenge this unwritten rule because only one partner remains monogamous. As a polyamorous person, I’ve seen up close how a monogamist handles such a situation. She was easily one of the best metamours I’ve ever had.
