Jackie Saw this family on the Dr. Phil show. Sounded like they live in Salt Lake somewhere. Certainly weren't the sterotype polygamous family :0S

Emma It's possible to share a spouse with someone else without a "very strong religious conviction," but otherwise, I agree with this review.

message 3: by Jackie (new)

Jackie I don't really know of a situation where someone is married to multiple spouses (with everyone's knowledge and consent) that is not based on a religious conviction. I guess it's out there, but under what other circumstances?

message 4: by Emma (new)

Emma It's called polyamory, and instead of religion, it's done just for happiness. :)

message 5: by Jackie (new)

Jackie Hmmmm. Good to know. So is it multiple wives or husbands, or either? I personally could not do it, but to each their own :0)

message 6: by Emma (new)

Emma It's whatever someone wants. And it isn't always just one person with multiple partners--those partners can have multiple partners, too. Of any gender. :) It's very personalized.

Jackie That seems more of a "swapping" thing to me. Do they all live uner the same household?

message 8: by Emma (new)

Emma Sometimes, yes. Like I said, it's personalized for each individual, it isn't a set thing like "one man with multiple wives." One man with multiple wives can also be a kind of polyamory--as long as those wives have the same freedoms the man has. So, if they want to be with other people (or each other!) it's okay and allowed. They might all live together, or they might not. It's flexible.
