    If the arrangement works for them and their potential children, then what's the problem? The marriage thing is not going to happen, however; certainly not in this lifetime.

    I totally get it. It is my opinion that those advocating monogamy while simultaneously judging and rejecting any other non-monogamous practice are ignorant.

    Human culture can be so fucking stifling sometimes.

    -congratulations & best wishes to the trio
    -wishing them luck in their future

    Yes your right but not how you think your saying it: I have no problem with Polyamory but your talking about these guys having children as a good thing.

    Sometimes I can really see why many gay men (not so much on RJ) don't like sports. I mention that Coz if the Gay community was a team in any sport, we would have so many own goals to the opponents we would never get ahead.

    Adults living a different life style such as polyamory is as valid as any other choice however with children into the equation that's one step too many. Children thrive on stability and most Gay men treat the concept of state and community to allow & support.

    the "life style" term is vastly over used by evil people and their god.

    skip the love thing, we are assign a number to stability.

    This story is going to drive the religious right crazy. I can already hear the chorus of "I told you so's" by those who predicted that same-sex marriage would lead to the end of "traditional" marriage. (Of course the entire concept of "traditional" marriage is historically inaccurate.)

    For my part, I think it is awesome that these three men have found each other and are happy together! I truly wish them well, and hope that their relationship endures. I'm actually a little envious.

    You got the part about the RR saying "I told you so," right - and they ARE absolutely right. Sorry, but I'm not on board with this one at all, especially in light of all the comments made by so-called "gay leaders" to the effect that same sex marriage would not lead to polygamy. This is just another twist on JS Mill's permissive philosophy that has caused so many social problems already.

    I'd base a rationale of marriage on the idea of fostering at least minimal companionship which everyone deserves and which thereby deserves protections and special considerations so that someone doesn't have to go through life alone. We do enough of that on our own.

    I've zero issues with whatever configuration of relationship whoever finds enjoyable given adult status, consent and competence, but marriage to me seems an institution of two if only for the logistics. If three then four then five then six then crazy.

    Also, single people get fucked enough by costs of living, by government & corporate benefits (isn't a pension that extends to a widow worth more than a single guy's pension?), etc., even by salaries (how many managers will pay more a guy who's supporting kids than a single gay guy without kids though doing the same work) so I see no reason to encourage, foster nor certainly to support (will all 20 spouses be eligible for SS benefits of the breadwinner?) multi-marriage which could increase that imbalance.

    That three guys want to raise a kid together, assuming they are all loving people I'm sure that could be a wonderful family. Because I didn't have enough issues by the guilt trips of my two parents. What's one more?

    Nothing wrong with polygamy, as long as it isn't the coercive type. Such as the usual, preacher/king takes all the girls, kicks all the boys out of town (or sends them off to war) sort of deal. These are not new ideas.

    I've always been interested in poly relationships, I've felt that since I was younger that would be something I would feel most comfortable in. I've never met anybody that shared the mindset, I didn't know that this was in the news, these people live 40 minutes away from where I currently am.

    Unfortunately, polygamy is illegal in Canada.

    a two party relationship is (at least for me) soooo much work. just thinking simple is better.

    any equal loving relationship is a good

    The concept doesn't bother me at all. As an editor, I'll object only if I have to start using cutesy/obnoxious words like "throuple."

    No problem with it here. I wouldn't rule it out for myself; however, I wouldn't look to society at large to accept it or sanction it. It would have to be regulated by some sort of legal contract drawn up spelling out the rights and responsibilities of each partner and the means by which the relationship is dissolved by one or all.

    They could move to South Africa, where polygamy is legal. Maybe they could get married there, and ask Canada to recognize their marriage. Would not work in the States, but Canadians are a pretty liberal bunch.

    Why not 10 parents? Would that be good for the child too? Where do you draw the line as to what's best for the child? Oh wait.....no one considers that.

    I know a few people who were born and grew up in 1960's free-love communes. They do seem brighter and more social than most of my acquaintances. But once you get to know them, they have about as many problems as anybody else.

    Polygamy is illegal. PERIOD. An open marriage is not illegal, but marrying more than one is.

    If two married couple want to live together, fine. But don't expect a foursome to be sanctioned. As for children, the legal rights would be confusing and not appropriate IMHO.

    We aren't Mormons, they can't legally condone it, why should we?
