I hear ya, been there, alot You eventually work it out, we've had to learn to be flexible in our dynamic, not everything is black and white there's alot of grey areas when it comes to raising a family.

Re: a non-traditonal family here...

I'm late to this thread, but I wanted to say that I know of another set in a 'poly-v' relationship--I just wasn't sure what to call it! It took a little while to figure out that although one of them was dating both of the other two (and now getting more serious, I think) that the two she was seeing were not seeing each other. It seems to work out really well for them, as it sounds like it does for you!

Re: a non-traditonal family here...

Lol to the prev post. Welcome. Poly seems interesting and if I wasn't such a jealous person I might be open to it. Also the thought of having another's needs and feelings to consider seems overwhelming. I'm glad that people are feeling safe to share themselves here. I hope the attitude of acceptance continues.

What is Poly-V, exactly?

I get that there is more than two people in the relationship, just not sure specifically what poly-v means.

God bless!

Nice to know I'm not alone on the board Yay!
I'm curious, if you don't mind sharing.. how does that work?

Are each of the relationships separate in a way? Or is everybody "with" everybody..

Example.. Let's call y'all Woman A, Woman B, Man A and Man B.

Is it like Woman A is with Woman B AND Man A?
Or is Woman A with Woman B, Man A AND Man B?
Are Man A and B in any kind of intimate relationship with each other? Or only with the women?

Does that make sense? LOL And sorry if it's too nosey, I'm just curious?

Also.. how the heck does that happen? Does Wife A one day walk up to Wife B and say "I love you, but I want a man also?" And Wife B says "Ok honey, sounds great, IF I can have a man all my own?" LOL

Again.. just curious and I hope my question actually make sense. LOL

God bless!

I'm not 100% sure but the way I understand it is there are 3 people. 2 of those people have one person in common. Like the relationship literally looks like a V with the common person being at the point of the V and the partners the arms. So the person in common has a relationship with both people but the "arms" don't have a relationship with each other. Make sense?
