I hear it all the time and everywhere when the subject of Polyamory comes up, “what about jealousy?” or “do poly people get jealous” or the declaration, “I can’t deal with jealousy so I could never be in an open relationship”. At times these repeated questions and statements are heard so often that many poly people have almost rehearsed speeches to talk to people or reporters about poly and jealousy.
I was reading an article this morning, as is often true ...Continue Reading →

One of the most challenging things for people in polyamorous relationships is finding a balance in their life between relationships and responsibilities. This can be especially challenging for those who have children, demanding careers and/or are activists working toward awareness and tolerance.

In their true comedic style, they were doing an exaggerated story about a minister who opposes gays getting divorced “No Gay Out – Jason Jones believes that God Intended man and woman to be stuck in a loveless union, not gays” ...Continue Reading →
As we work to raise funds to keep Loving More going I thought about how Loving More as an organization has touched my life and I wanted to share it. I hope this inspires you to share your experiences. ~~ Robyn Trask

When I first heard the Tiger Woods hoopla, I ignored it as just another gossip fest about someone famous. A few days later, I was personally dismayed when I saw Tiger Woods leading the headlines in USA Today while a story about four police officers being killed in Washington State was not as important. The officers, it was believed, were targeted while sitting in a coffee shop. This was only a headline ...Continue Reading →
The Newsweek article has stirred up a frenzy of comments and posting on their website because of the July 29 article, Only You. And You. And You.
It is always interesting to me to read the comments after an article in mainstream media on polyamory. There is always a prolific and strong reaction of moralizing and pointing fingers at what terrible perverse people polyamorists are. Many people seem to live with their heads in some other reality of monogamy being the ...Continue Reading →
I was standing in line at the grocery store when an issue of Time Magazine caught my eye. The cover was a badly made wedding cake with a plastic bride and groom plowed into the top, the cover article, Unfaithfully Yours, by Caitlin Flanagan. I had to buy it and read this article. In the contents under the cover story listing the byline was “The two-parent family is in trouble. Why we still need the nuclear unit-and how to save ...Continue Reading →
