Hi Magdlyn--to answer your question, I've restricted the age limit to 35 because one of my goals is to explore how a younger generation of polyamorous women see their non-monogamy in relation to the contemporary queer movement. Also, most of the existing academic research on polyamory tends to focus on middle-aged, upper middle class white women, so I'm trying to broaden what demographics are being represented.

In other words, ageism isn't my intention; I'm just trying to explore a different dimension of the polyamory community.
