I'm a recently divorced male who has finally gotten around to questioning old assumptions about the nature of various forms of relationships.
It has always been an important part of my nature that I've been able to feel equal amounts of love for multiple people. I've held closely to this as a defining characteristic, but to this point, the principle has played out only in the context of platonic relationships. A number of experiences in the past few years -- and a lifetime of relationship mistakes -- have caused me to think very seriously about what this idea might look like in a committed love relationship. So I'm here to explore.
Commitment itself is very important to me, so my thoughts run specifically along the lines of [closed] group relationships, as opposed to open relationships with multiple individual partners.
And I have to be un-romantically honest in saying that since I just watched my first marriage fall apart much faster than I could have ever imagined, I want to explore not only the dynamics of group relationships, but their feasibility
as well. Sometimes it seems difficult enough to find two compatible people -- so three or more must be a miracle.
But love itself is a miracle, isn't it?
