Are you in or interested in creating a relationship that goes beyond the norm in some way, in gender, number, expression or style? At her website Love Outside the Box, relationship expert Dawn Davidson provides counseling, information on establishing boundaries as well as suggestions on how to deal with jealousy and much more. Today we’re going to talk about polyamory and the lessons everyone can learn from this unique and often misunderstood type of relationship.
Researchers estimate that as many as 5 percent of Americans are currently in relationships involving consensual non-monogamy — that is, permission to go outside the couple looking for love or sex.The boundaries in these relationships are remarkably varied, with some couples negotiating one-off "swinging" or partner-swapping experiences and others forming stable bonds among three, four or five partners simultaneously. The latter is a version of polyamory, relationships in which people have multiple partnerships at once with the full knowledge of everyone involved.
