Me too. But there are happy poly families out there. And their plight is even worse than that of same sex couples. They can go to prison for it!<quoted text>
Basically, Frank, I don't know enough about plural marriages. You know, I've been dealing with one-to-one marriage for so long that it just hasn't come up. I don't know how the dynamics work in a relationship where there is more than two people.
And it's not the kind of relationship that I could ever see myself being involved in.
I guess, in some ways we already have a type of plural relationships in our society by way of divorce. I try to think of it from the perspective of a kid who has a father and step-mother 4 days a week and a mother and a step-father 3 days away. That kid is living with two sets of parents who are intimately connected by that child's birth.
As I said before, it's not something that I'm going to run out and support. But I wouldn't likely great opposition to it.
It's not on my radar. I don't know of those kinds of families. And I could never see myself being in anything other than a monogamously coupled relationship.
That's how I'm built.
I believe their marriages deserve the same respect and consideration as any other marriage.
