An Adventure in Polyamorous Love and Personal Growth

Gay Marriage and the Relationship Revolution

Gay Marriage and the Relationship Revolution
by Robyn  Trask
Gay marriage is being hotly debated all around the country.

Growing Up in a Group Marriage

Growing Up in a Group Marriage

One day in the summer of 1971, my parents held hands, closed their eyes and jumped out of their conventional marriage into something strange and new. I was 9 years old at the time, and we were camping at Betsy Lake in the High Unitas Wilderness with another family of five. We were halfway into the camping trip when the six of us kids realized our parents had ...
