Since Muslim Polygyny, from which Harems derive are strictly religiously mandated, it isn't possible for it to be polyamorous even if the women choose to live that way.
In other words...again...this is the wrong section.
Great point!~ ^_^ Thanks for helping me learn some more!~
I did not know that!~
Although I still think polyamory could be found in many cultures although probably with a different name or no name at all as the concept of loving more than 1 person is nothing new really, I am still creating a separate thread for the reasons I listed above.~ ^_^
