- you've got your terms a bit mixed up. Polyamory isn't only one man with multiple women; it is an umbrella term for any configuration of multiple loving relationships. Polyandry means a wife with two or more husbands, and polygyny means a husband with two or more wives; these terms, obviously refer to something that is illegal in most places.
