Well, I would argue that one CAN BE polyamorous AND a cheater (just as one can be ostensibly monogamous and a cheater), but the two are certainly not synonymous. My polyamorous ex-husband certainly cheated on me, although he didn't need to. However, in my book, a person who is in a monogamous relationship AND is cheating does not get to call him/herself "polyamorous" to slide away from responsibility.

However, I am definitely one of those who doesn't have a real issue with folks who have more-casual sexual relationships with several people calling themselves "polyamorous," as long as they are open to being romantically attached to more than one person (even if that's not occurring at that particular time).
