In dutch there's a word calles: Polyamorie. It is about being in love and being loved by more then one person. It means having true and deep relationships with other people as a way of life. Not specially sexually, but intens. With complete trust and care for eachother. To me it sounds ideal. Most people I know think that is not possible because of jelousy. I think it is possible because loving means wanting the other to be happy, not owning eachother. To me, it is the only way to have long lasting relationships. Otherwise you have to choose and deny that you need other people besides the one you chose.

It is possible and I've know some doing that but with complete trust and care for each other? That rather hard to do that because there is bound to have some little incidents here and there. Anyway, I'm rather traditional when comes to relationships so the idea of this is kinda "wrong" for me. Maybe because I'm Asian or we are brought up this way.

It is gross. Polygamy is for dogs and rabbits. Humans are intended to be Monogamous.

Says who? Is that all you can say? And it is not polygamy, it is polyamorie and that is slightly different.

Polygamy means that one person has more than one relation. Polyamory indicates that all partners in the relation are allowed to do so if they choose. It means that when your partner falls in love with someone else he can still love you to, you are not going to be deleted because a better person comes along. Because there is no better person, just different. What's wrong with that?

To me that is cheating and I believe it is wrong. I do not wish to participate any further in this discussion as I do not wish to argue with anyone here and I have very strong beliefs on monogamy. Sorry.
