Can polyamorous relationships get married?
The word polyamory means “many loves.” Many people who are exploring polyamory also have an interest in alternatives to marriage. Others cant marry, either because its not legal to marry more than one partner at the same time, or because their partner is the same sex they are.
Can a monogamous person be with a poly?
My short answer – yes, it is possible. However, to make a polyamorous /monogamous relationship work takes partners who are secure in themselves and their choices, secure in the relationship, good communicators and willing to work.
