    Wow, fascinating story! Thanks for sharing it. I was struck by the statements regarding the benefits of having one life partner/lover as a support when the third one dies, a benefit that two-paired individuals don't have. It must be very powerful to have two lovers mourning the loss of the third one together and supporting each other through this process.

    Our culture tends to disapprove and/or pathologize relationship arrangements it does not fully understand or does not fit a rigidly pre-set socially-accepted relationship paradigm. Nevertheless this testimony exposes us to the possibility that yes, alternative relationship arrangements can work as long as there is open and honest communication between individuals that share common values and expectations.

    I am 25 years older than my BF. Ideally I would like a third in our relationship someone between his and my age so that when I die he will not be alone. I would like that upon my demise he and the third will find a younger man to fill the void and perpetuate our "family." I could see this extending for generations actually creating a "family tree" and history.

    i love the idea of polyamory. it's all about more love. i have a hard enough time finding one guy i like, so i doubt i'll ever be able to try it, but i'm interested. you can definitely be in love with more than 1 person at the same time.
