Polyamory Is Cheating
There is sometimes a misunderstanding between polyamory and infidelity. However, because polyamory is founded on honesty, communication, and putting everyone's feelings first, polyamory does not always imply cheating.
In a polyamorous relationship, both partners will agree on their relationship's limits and norms ahead of time. So if a partner betrays your trust in a monogamous relationship and later claims that it is because they are polyamorous, you have every right to be hurt and confused.
While respecting the other person's identity is important, you never agreed to be in an open or polyamorous relationship, so you have reason to suspect their behavior is dishonest.
Polyamorous People Just Haven’t Met Their Forever Partners
We all grow up so focused on finding our true love that it might be difficult to comprehend having more than one great fit.
Polyamory holds that no single person can be expected to fulfill your wants and desires. That is a lot of pressure to place on a single person! Many people become bored with one person's routine, wish their spouse had other hobbies or opinions, or simply do not have all of their physical or emotional needs satisfied.
So what are they going to do? They implore their spouse to be better and to think and act differently, hoping their wants will suddenly be satisfied.
In practice, this rarely works; instead, it often leads to animosity between spouses and unhappiness. Polyamory allows diverse partners to meet different needs, creating a true sense of fulfillment.
Polyamory Is for Emotionally Immature People
Having several relationships is frequently portrayed in our society as "youthful exploration" or an indication of a mid-life crisis. Poly individuals are said to only spread their wild oats until they age, mature, and settle down.
Polyamorous individuals come in different kinds, sizes, and ages. In truth, many polyamorous persons were raised in monogamous partnerships. They couldn't communicate their entire range of demands, deal with jealousy and insecurity, and accept the notion of having several relationships until they developed.
Polyamory Is Just a Trend
Polyamory is not a new concept; in fact, it predates monogamy. Most men in the Bible and other ancient texts had multiple wives.
Polyamory is not immature, unethical, or a novel concept. Each individual must investigate and comprehend what works best for them.
Whatever type of relationship you choose, remember to embrace the love that is right for you, not just one that conforms to the status quo.
