An Adventure in Polyamorous Love and Personal Growth

An Adventure in Polyamorous Love and Personal Growth

Romantic relationships come in many forms; some are magical brief encounters while others are deep emotional bonds that last a lifetime.

By Maureen Marovitch
Reprinted from Loving More Issue #33, Winter 2005.

It’s so comforting to have tidy ...
