Re: “Bianca Knows Best … And Helps a Polyamorous Woman

Bianca: thanks for responding supportively to this situation. I have a couple things to add:

1) I am monogomous, but personally know several polyamorous relationships that have been in effect for years. At the same time, let's not buy into the idea that longevity is the only marker of a successful relationship. Many shorter polyamorous relationships are wonderful just as they are.

2) I think that this person should consider a different approach to "coming out" to her family. She should share with her more open-minded family members positive news pieces about polyamory, such as this recent piece on Fox News: http://www.myfoxboston.com/dpp/morning/pol… .

Sharing what is good and normal about polyamorous relationships, without openly relating it to herself, is the best way to go. It avoids the awkward TMI nature of such conversations (discussing one's sex life with one's parents, however tastefully, can be pretty awful), while letting family members have their "A-Ha" moment when they're ready to face the truth. Smart family members will read between the lines and ask the relevant questions, eventually =^)
