I find the call for external authority which legitimizes a certain view and form of polyamory and polyamorous relationship tends to also exclude other views on polyamory. It does not forge bonds within the poly community. I believe if laws were ever created based on this mindset many within poly relationships would be disadvantaged because their perspectives and relationships differ and therefore their relationships would not be recognized.
