Polyamory

Leave a comment

In class we watched a video about polyamory.  The word derives from the greek root word “poly”, meaning many, and the latin root word “amor”, meaning love; which translates to many lovers, or many partners.  Personally, I liked the video really well, because it gave me insight about how some people in the world view relationships.  However, I do not completely agree with the concept as a whole.

When I think of relationships, I think of them as traditional; two individuals in the relationship; whether it be male and female, male and male, or female and female.   Though my view of relationships is probably completely different from many people out there, it is not my place to tell someone that they should not have multiple partners, because love can come in various forms.
