It does not mean any type of open relationship that may include more casual sexual partners. In many polyamorous relationships, each partner is aware of the other ones. Solo polyamory includes people who dont have primary partnerships but date multiple people. They remain mostly independent in their personal lives.
Can a polyamorous person date one person?
My short answer – yes, it is possible. However, to make a polyamorous /monogamous relationship work takes partners who are secure in themselves and their choices, secure in the relationship, good communicators and willing to work.
Do polyamorous relationships exist?
Numerous studies conducted in the United States have reported that about four to eight percent of the population are in polyamorous relationships. Polyamory differs from other types of open relationships such as swinging (couples having casual sex outside of the relationship, without being emotionally attached).
Is it illegal to be polyamorous?
Polyamory and polygamy, which is illegal across the United States but is still in practice in some communities through spiritual unions, are vastly different. Equality is a key component of poly culture, and many polygamous marriages can be unequal.
