Default Old thread, new question

I'm curious if anyone here has turned to polyamory as a way to cope with the end of a physical relationship between partners due to the chronic illness of one of the people. I'm wondering how it might have worked out, if so?

I'm specifically talking about a couple who have already agreed that polyamory is in theory acceptable to both parties but have never had an actual poly relationship, who want to stay together despite things having changed from a romantic/ sexual relationship to a platonic, best friends, caregiver/patient type.

I understand everyone's experience will be different, but I'd love to hear any real life stories or advice from those who have been in this difficult position.
