Have to agree.. I am in my 3rd year of the same setup, with kids, co parenting and the whole family dynamic.. going strong at this stage with no end in site.
I tend to think people project on others what hasn't or doesn't work for them. So I accept people saying pairing and coupling doesn't work.. *shrugs*..
If you go by this site and others online then 95% (pulling that from my butt) of poly relationships fail. So any poly setup is likely to blow up. Just go in accepting that fact and enjoy the relationships for what they are. Be true to yourself and keep yourself healthy and hopefully your partners will respect that as well..
Thats true for any relationship structure though..
