Sorry. I haven't even read the whole thread yet. But wanted to break in and say while this may generally be true, it isn't always the case. My husband and I have been in a very strong poly (polyfidelitous) relationship with another couple for well over 2 years now. As the relationships deepen we are beginning to have a little challenge as we try to find our real places in each others lives. But 99.9% is great and I never want to give up what we have.
