As I said before, I will not be baited.
LOL you are funny saying that you will "not be baited." (If I were fishing I would definitely think that I was getting a nibble since you have responded twice. )
But by all means, don't "defend" your lifestyle. Tell me why and how it works. (That is, if it is successful.)
I was attempting to initiate conversation on the subject. I am willing to change my opinions and/or misconceptions via the process of intelligent discussion. I am not attacking your or anyone's lifestyle. Yes, you know where I am coming from, but perhaps I am wrong.
Does anyone have any statistics? I know that marriage itself is not doing well in that area.
If there is anyone on this forum who has had (and still has) a successful and happy polyamory longterm relationship that involves a married couple and a single "extra partner" I would like to hear about it.
