Are You Open About Your Polyamory Lifestyle?

Even though polyamory is becoming more widely recognized and enjoyed, it can still cause unwanted judgement and criticism from those that don’t understand what it is. These reactions prevent many individuals involved in triads and quads from being open about their lifestyle choice.

Loving More, a website devoted to supporting polyamory and relationship choice, defines Polyamory as having romantic love with more than one person, honestly, ethically, and with the full knowledge and consent of all concerned. The lifestyle often involves multiple long-term committed relationships, either separately or together and includes open polyamory, polyfidelity, and single polyamorists.

    As I understand it, polyamory is about free choice in how you build your relationships. It is built on Love, not cultural sexual restriction. Love encompassing trust, acceptance, honesty and openness.
    We were married in 1976, and all was well until recent years, when medical problems and their repercussions stopped our sex lives completely. To stop Herself apologizing for not being a complete woman, I declared that we upgrade our relationship to polyamory, where sex is irrelevant, and we are now settled back into our usual lifestyle, but without sex which, by the way, I am now free to seek if I so choose. This may be difficult due to our lifestyle. If you have an account with OKCupid, my mundrek profile will explain.

      Hi John, thanks so much for sharing. Your story is proof that people come to polyamory in many different ways and at different stages of their lives.

        Thanks, Holly –
        I wish that more senior people in a like position could find polyamory. It makes life so much more relaxing, and, I think tends to help people look forward rather than backwards, which we tend to do.
