    Lots of change all at once

    There have been three major relationship changes/additions in our family in the last week or so, and I’m kind of overwhelmed. In a good way, but overwhelmed. The first thing that happened is a change in my relationship with Swift. She was feeling ignored and so I made a conscious effort to...

    Making up with ignored partner

    Over the weekend we had the first major squabble in our family since I moved in. Swift and Corsac started arguing in the kitchen, and Renarde got drawn into the spat. After I intervened and tried to calm them down, I found out that apparently I'm the apple of discord. Swift can get a bit...

    Suggesting adding another partner...

    My husband (Ares) and our housemate (Artemis) are really good friends, but that's where the relationship stops. They talk a lot, they tend to be late night drinking buddies at the kitchen table, and they work together. He brought her into the home when her husband died a couple of years ago...

The kids refer to the other two wives as "Mom" interchangeably...for them, having two moms...

    Converting for the purposes of a relationship?

    I'm facing a decision regarding my future and possibly getting involved with my exBF that I am very close to. I’m leaning in the direction of joining his family. I’ve been in love with him for 15 years, and I suspect that my GF#1 is in love with his first wife and that their relationship is...

    New and making a decision

    I'm new to the idea of poly. I'm an established professional, early 30's female. I have two beautiful girlfriends who I absolutely adore. I don't really consider that being "poly" (more like bigamy, I guess) but if I choose to add more to that relationship, what are the possible forms that...
