The Same Lovers

Leave a comment

I’m still not sure what I think about polyamorous relationships. For starters, I personally am a very jealous person so I do not think I could be in a relationship with a female where she has another male lover. I don’t think I could view that as anything other than cheating. That has been my stance on that my entire life and I have never heard anything in opposition to that. I watched a film called Savages, directed by Oliver Stone, and that was the first time I was introduced to even the idea of a polyamorous relationship. It’s an intriguing idea. I honestly would like to speak and see firsthand a successful polyamorous relationship just to really understand it completely. I have always heard of Mormon patriarchs in Utah with multiple wives but that seems to be different from polyamory because their multiple marriages are based in their religion. I am going to keep looking into polyamory in my free time so I can understand it a little bit better. It’s a very interesting thing, glad I have learned a little about it now.
