A couple things I have learned or observations I have made since hanging out on this board.

Poly is HARD work

Poly is NOT a way to accomodate a cheating spouse

If you are currently in a mono marriage - make sure your marriage is SOLID before adding additional partners. Spend some time working on learning to communicate better as it will be even more important later on.

The original spouse/partner will have feelings of jealousy in some form in the beginning, while there is NRE between the other and the new addition

No one has it all figured out

Set boundries - don't expect your partner to just know what lines can't be crossed
