Re: a non-traditonal family here...

anna explained our relationship exactly. Patrick is our "common" person or the middle of the v. i am one arm of the V. S. is the other arm of the V. but S. and I have nothing to do with each other. we are just roommates and friends.

confuuuuusing i know.

and this all came about because i sorta stalked patrick. i thought he was adorable. and knew he had a girlfriend before but they broke up. and his boyfriend was around and apparently approved because i wasn't crazy sauce. and 8 years later, we are still going strong.

I think that is pretty cool...not sure I could be an arm but I could totally be the hinge!!!

So the person in common has a relationship with both people but the "arms" don't have a relationship with each other. Make sense?

I think I get it....

So if say I decided to have a girlfriend, and DH was ok with it (not saying I would want a girlfriend or he would approve lol, just hypothetical)......

So say I met... Melissa... and Melissa and I started a relationship. But I kept my relationship with my DH.

We would be a Poly-V... Melissa and I would have a relationship, DH and I would have a relationship, but DH and Melissa would not be romantically involved at all. Right?

Thanks for explaining and not being offended at the question.

God bless!

Re: a non-traditonal family here...

So if Poy-V, is three people with one hinge....

What is it called if there are four people....

Say you have Melissa, Michelle, Jarred and Patrick.

Let's say:
Melissa and Jarred are a couple.
Michelle and Patrick are a couple.
Melissa and Patrick are also a couple.

So you had four people, but within that four there are three relationships.
KWIM?

God bless!
