Our society dictates otherwise, of course: monogamy or go solo. But people are exploring other alternatives, which is a good thing. Not everyone is built for those alternatives, though; they can get pretty tricky. I'm personally happy, though, that there are functioning families of the increasing trend of people being at least willing to accept, if not embrace for themselves, polyamory.

Some people yes, others, not so much.
In my opinion, quite the opposite. I feel that in todays times, sexual expression is everywhere, including our school systems. I personally do not think that it is a good thing either.
As adults, we all have our equal rights for sexual preference and expression. Whatever goes on behind closed doors and is consentual, I feel as though it is none of my damn buisness what you do. All I ask in return is for it not be forced apon me or my family, and by all means, leave it out of the school systems.
Living a poly life has it benefits and it has its negatives. I am just not sure what the long term affects will be on the children who are raised in such an environment. Will it be a positive upbringing or a bad one ? How one decides to raise their children is up to them, just do not force me to raise my kids too early by cramming it in out face or by your personal views & beliefs and we should be fine. I stand by the issue that we all have our rights, and it is up to the people involved in a poly styled life to live as they see fit. But, much like people of a poly life have that right to live in their chosen lifestyle, equally people who do not live that life have the right not to accept that type of lifestyle.
Don't get me wrong, sexual expression is a good thing, I just feel that it should be expressed behind closed doors.

I don't believe I have to place the same value on polyamorous relationships as Suzi does, nor does she have to value monogamy as I do, for example. Like I said in another thread : Fuck whoever you want. Come what may...be it good or bad, you asked for it.
But also in line with Rob2k's opinion is my belief that anyone who tries to sexualize children is a pedophile. I don't give a shit how great anyone thinks their sexual perspective is...I keep my hands, my morals, my religion, my preconceived notions, etc., off your body and your children...and whether you like it or not, you're keeping yours off mine and my kids.

It's thought that when people were still hunting and gathering, that there was communal parenting and therefore a social system that would to us look more like polyamory and less like the sort of monogamy +/- cheating that is prevalent today.
So....until someone comes up with another economy of scale that allows for stable communal parenting, polyamory will probably appeal only to a minority of folks...
