    Is it possible for some one to be in love with more than one person at the same time?

    I have always wondered if it is possible for a man to love more than one woman at the same time

    You would need to see them as the Saints do, as one entity in God.

    For this the Divine communion or marriage is necessary, not that of this world, but the one of mystical union where all souls live in God. May you find this Oneness, A state infinitely more fulfilling than human love can ever dream of giving, including that of your mom and dad. Much peace.

    That would be a matter of opinion. Many people believe they have been in love more than once in their life, but I believe that when you meet that one person your feelings for that person are stronger than compared to anyone else. You want to be with that person because it's them.

    I personally think you can. Love is one of the best gifts given to man, why not share it! We definitely need more of it in the world. In terms of relationships, people have different connections with others, and sometimes you can't easily dismiss that just because you are committed. Its all comes down to  prioritising. Some types of love shared with certain people reigns higher than others. Just my opinion.

    I believe it's possible to love more than one person. However I do not believe it's possible to be "in love" with more than one person at once.
    If you were "in love" with the first person you wouldn't have made time to get to know and become emotionally/physically involved with the second person! If you've just eaten dinner you're not likely to want to eat dinner immediately again because you're already (full).

    A very interesting question indeed!
    I will answer your question with proper evidences and not by my personal comments. This phenomenon of 'in love with more than one person (be it man or woman)' has attracted the attention of many psychologists. American psychological investigations presented a complete report of a survey conducted on 100 individuals. In this, 25% men acknowledged that they loved more than one woman. At the same time, they also confronted that the relationship level is complicated. Though they enjoyed the experience initially, but actually felt relieved when it ended. It was also obvious from their responses, that when they were emotionally involved with two women in their lives, they preferred one over the other for some particular reasons.
    The reasons when identified made clear why man preferred to chose more than one woman in their lives. Often man does not get what they dream about from their closest love, hence they start finding other women who will return them with the much anticipated, dreamed about expectations.
    Hence the in-depth reviews made very clear that there are two types of love existing in a relationship. 'The passionate love' or 'The Comfortable Love'. Significantly, none of the individuals chose passionate love. They acknowledged that they would never go for a passionate love relationship in both cases or comfortable love relationship in both cases. However, it is still alright to have a combination of one partner being a passionate lover and another being a comfortable love with more preference being given to the comfortable lover.
    When individually, they were asked about the idea of being in relationships with more than two women, they gave a surprised expression with a feeling of negative exasperation (Wilraker, 2005; Jankowiak, 2006). They confirmed that being in love simultaneously for a long period would be a pleasant or satisfying experience for them as it would bring complications, unnecessary expectations. A 36-year old man as a subject confronted that love is a strong, powerful bond which can be maintained by only one person for a long time. The other transient relations are mainly because of our unfulfilled desires which, when get satisfied, people look for comfortability.
    To sum up, the consequences of this investigation show that though human beings are sexually polygamous but fervently they are monogamous!!
