Perhaps that is true of a certain subset of polyfolk - ie., younger people of childbearing age, but I wouldn't call that group the majority of people practicing poly. The problem is we really don't know the demographics of all poly people, nor even how many there are. I also think there are lots more people out there living polyamorously who have never even heard of the word, and for whom meeting the usual societal standards is not the goal by any means. I highly doubt that cohabitation and marriage is high on the list of older polyfolk, the childfree, etc.
