Polyamorous - Poly What?

Polyamorous" is an umbrella term that covers various forms of multiple relationships; polyamorous arrangements are varied depending on the choices of the people involved.

As you already guessed Polyamorous relationships are not for everyone and it can be exhausting to manage on many levels.I personally feel it is a lot for one person to handle and can be crippling to the self esteem of either partner...each to it's own.
Polyamory according to Wikipedia and other sources is is the practice, desire, or acceptance of having more than one intimate relationship at a time with the knowledge and consent of everyone involved.
What does that mean and why am I talking about this topic? I have noticed that polyamorous relationships are a growing trend in America and through out the world...knowledge is power.

Although polygamy it is technically not legal in the USA there are thousands people living this way and it is not the Mormon sister wives and one husband arrangement on the TLC channel.  These polyamory relationships are not based on sex and do not consider themselves to be swingers.

There is a Polyamory Society that was founded in 1996 that focuses on all things poly. Every summer there is a World Annual Polyamory Conference. According to the Alternatives to Marriage Project Most people in unmarried relationships want to be monogamous.  Among unmarried couples who are living together, 95% say they expect monogamy from their partner, and the percentage for married couples is only a few points higher.
