Just a thought to consider - in the situations where a cohabitating Vee (or triad) works successfully - I wonder if it hinges on whether or not the participants would have been good "roommates" for each other if there were no romantic connections involved.

In my case, if I were not in the picture, I think that MrS and Dude could have wound up as roommates regardless (based on friendship and lifestyle). We are not ideal roommates in an objective sense...we are absolute slobs, in reality. But we are ALL slobs...perhaps this comes into play.

So, maybe, one of the questions in considering cohabitation is ... if I were single, could I see myself living with this other person anyway?

JaneQ(Me): poly bi female, in an "open-but-not-looking" V-plus with -
MrS: hetero polyflexible male, live-in husband (25+ yrs)
Dude: hetero poly male, live-in boyfriend (7+ yrs) and MrS's BFF
SLeW: platonic hetero girlfriend and BFF
MrClean: hetero mono male, almost lover-friend to me, ex-FWBs to SLeW, friends with MrS
+ "others" = FBs, FWBs, lover-friends, platonic G/BFs, boytoys, etc.
