Polyamory
poly·am·ory:  The state or practice of having more than one open romantic relationship at a time
-Merriam-Webster Dictionary

This is actually a pretty simple statement for something that seems so complex and confusing at times. This word can have many different meanings to many different people, so I suppose that the description fits because it is the only solid thing about the subject; “there are as many different types of polyamorous relationships as there are people in the world.”

MTV True Life: I’m Polyamorous

This show, unconventionally and boldly took a stand to say that monogamy is not the only relationship that a person can be in. I mean, other mammals do it, why wouldn’t we? One question that does come to mind about this is, is being polyamorous have anything to do with genetics, personal preference, or a mixture of both? What do you guys think?
