Well, yes you do. They may not be partners in the sense that your husband is, but they are partners in friendship and sex, etc., so yes, you have multiple partners.

That's still poly. You don't have to have or want a totally entwined living-together situation to practice polyamory. All poly is is the ability or desire to have multiple loving relationships with the knowledge and consent of all involved. Sounds like that's what you've got... and it sounds great to me!
The world opens up... when you do.
