Polyamorous Relationship Dos and Don'ts - More Than Two
Increasing publicity about polyamory and other forms of consensual non-monogamy CNM is both a cause and an effect of more people finding out about and deciding to attempt these relationships themselves. Of the various forms, like polygyny and swinging , polyamory is among the most demanding in terms of the amount of communication and negotiation it can take to sustain. Because serial monogamy is the current social norm, attempting CNM relationships means having to or getting to negotiate novel agreements with loved ones. If you're not sure who you are, take some time to explore and consider your values, boundaries, needs, and priorities. That will make the conversation much easier when it comes time to negotiate your relationships.
