Basic Daring Thoughts On Polyamorous Relationships

So I have been educating myself on the world of Polyamorous relationships and the different types. I am intrigued by the concept to say the least. I agree with alot of it. No one person can really give you all you need it seems.

It is like thinking you only need one ingredient to make a dish. There are many key ingredients to make a complete dish. Marriage is alot like that, and I think a open relationship could prevent a lot of divorces perhaps. Why not allow your partner to have someone else that can give them what you can not. If you are secure enough in the overall relationship, there is really not that much to worry about. As long as all parties agree to whatever is mutually decided. Whether it is living all together, with blended everything, or separate but being involved.

That could be just a sexual relationship, or romantic, or both. I know I think that would be a wonderful thing for someone in my shoes. I feel bad about leaving my disabled husband no matter what. Kind of feels like a mean thing to do, to divorce him . We have been there for each other through raising , my numerous illnesses and his as well. So not saying that I would never divorce him, but I want to have options that work best for no matter who I am involved with. What if you are always a girlfriend but never live together? Nothing wrong with that at all. Sometimes I think that is the best way to be. You get to enjoy each other, and then go back to your own homes. No having to pick up after the other person or putting up with their insane family, etc. Money matters are separate too.

So what are your thoughts on Polyamorous relationships>? Would you be open to such a thing?

It's not something I'd be into.
Multiple girl friends? 🤔 Hmmm...

Open marriages or Polyamorous relationships can and do work for many people and I suspect would lead to many fewer divorces. After all, a marriage is about a lot more than sex. I understand you about not leaving your hubby and am happy that you are able to get the physical needs outside of your marriage.
My GF and I have decided we will never marry and, likely, never live together. We both have full enough lives apart and need our own time and space. Saves on the problem of dealing with the mundane issues of who pays for what etc. This way each time we meet it is a date. One of a few hours to a couple days.

May you find someone or maybe two or three someones to bring regular intimacy into your life. Sending big naked hugs to you

Polyamory is great or at least sounds great provided all parties are happy with it.
When I was part of a swinging couple we talked about things. We agreed that we should only have sex with others in the same room. It worked brilliantly while we were together.

Personally I'd rather not begin a relationship with someone who is going to be always looking for the next person to form a relationship with. Even if they are upfront about that. That being said, there are many of us whose partner's needs/abilities/desires have changed and permanently altered the landscape of our relationship. In those cases, opening up that existing relationship so that both partners can enjoy themselves is more acceptable to me.
