    Do you believe in polyamourous relationships? Do you think a person can love more than one person?

    If so, why and if not, why not?

    Yes, we certainly can. There is an excellent Danish author that has written a darn good subject on the matter of polyamorous relations. I wish she would have it translated into English so I could have recommended it in reply to this question.

    [I might contact her to offer that I could translate it... ;-)]

    of course a person can love more then one person. i have kids and i love them all, i have a wife and i love her. i have a family and good friends that i love. laws against people marrying more then one person are absurd and an infringement on our freedom.

    I think it is possible, but definitely not for me.
    To be honest I would have a hard enough time keeping up with one woman, without trying to add another one to the mix lol.
    When I am in a relationship I prefer a level of intimacy that I couldn't achieve if I was dividing my attention in this way.
    But hey, each to their own!

    I believe it's possible, but I agree with Max_Power...that doesn't work for me.
    Call me selfish, but when it comes to my husband's love I only share with family and friends, never with another woman! Thank God he thinks like me, he wouldn't accept this kind of situation.
    But some people like, right? Nothing against it, as long as they stay away from my husband. :-)

    I think it is possible and people should be able to live their lives doing whatever they'd like (within legal imits), but it definitely isn't for me.
    I could see people loving multiple people and having healthy relationship that way.

    I believe that its possible, but it's not for me, at least not in a romantic sense. 

    In general however, I think its absolutely possible to love more than one person. However, I do believe that there will always be different levels of love, and romantically, I think you will always love one person more than another.

    I think there is something you take away from a relationship when you love more than one person romantically. You can never really give yourself to that person 100%, or have them do the same for you if they are also having a romantic relationship with other people.

    I don't really care who other people love- as long as they are happy, I'm happy. But personally, I am in love with the idea that there is one person for each of us and we should be totally committed to them. If you throw in an extra person, it just seems like they are together, I guess. Like I said, its their choice and if they are happy its not a big deal, but for me its kind of weird.

    well.....i guess a person might just be able to do that
    but the jeliously which is inevitable makes it "A Hell On Earth" experience

    I believe it is absolutely possible, but I agree with others who have said that I prefer the deep intimacy of being really close with one other person. I have yet to hear an example of a long term poly relationship, and I am from San Francisco. I believe that for this to work you have to be in a space where you do not want deep intimacy and vulnerability. Just my opinion.
