Polyamory is about the ability/capacity to love more than one person at a time. I was at the losing end of someone who was convinced he had that ability/capacity in terms of having equal or co-primaries...only to have him back off when he was stressed out from work or other aspects of his life. (He and she were a couple before he and I were. All three of us got along fine. No romantic relationship between she and I.) He continued his level of commitment to her, which was only right. But, "love" is an action. If someone says they have the ability/capacity to love more than one person at a time (in a primary capacity in my situation) then I am not very accepting or understanding of their backing off on loving behavior towards ANY partner when the going gets rough. I start to really question their claimed ability/capacity because life will always have some type of stress.
