Do you think the acceptance of polyamory could reduce the divorce rate?
When I lived in the Bay Area I knew many polyamorous people and most of them were married to a primary partner, and they still had just as many divorces as the monogamous married people I knew. So no, I don't think it would change very much.
I'd agree with Relache.
However, I do not like discrimination. Adults should be free to live any life style they please, period. Polyamory, polygamy, same-sax, whatever.
Given that nothing stops a married couple from mutually agreeing to include others, I doubt being able to also marry those people would effect divorce one way or the other.
I also agree with Relache. I've known some people who practice polyamory and unfortunately, none of them have been successful at this point, resulting in divorce, separation, broken hearts, etc.
Relationships are hard enough with just two people and from what I gather from my polyamory friends, the more people involved, the harder it is in the long run. Too many issues, different dynamics and such.
I know a polyamorus trio that have been together forever. They seem happy, their kids are amazing. (Homeschooled to avoid attention, WV is a conservative state) and the situation seems to work for everyone.
I would be lying if I said I hadn't thought about it. I just don't like my husband that much.
