How much do women take to polyamory
I understand that while many wives may deliberate or even abhor the very idea of a poly-amorous lifestyle in the beginning. But once into this lifestyle do they really like it or do it just to please their partners.

I was seeing a video where they said that once introduced it's the women who keep it going. Is this true?

I don't know where you're getting your ideas. I've read that it's more often the woman who suggests poly in a relationship. I've got to find those articles again and post the links!

Anyway, there's already a few discussions on this. It helps to do a search before posting. See:

Situations vary, but I would think that anyone that "does it for their partner" is just waiting around for the end... I would think there would eventually be a big "fail" hanging from the situation and a whole lot of mess to clean up.

We talked about it for months beforehand, we came to it together and in agreement, no one did it for the other. This was after 10 years together, and a year later we are both sucsessfully poly and stronger than ever together.

All women don't feel one way or the other! Your mileage may vary, depending on which woman in particular.
