Oh, I'm totally aware of the poly prejudice as well, and I think it makes me equally sad (though it doesn't hit me as personally).

But I often feel like I'm riding a rare fence- living a mono life with a poly partner. Poly communities and forums don't exactly address my issues, and neither does the mainstream mono community. And I suppose my husband feels the same- he is a poly person with a mono wife he loves. Some poly forums literally say that if you are poly you should run away from mono people as fast as you can.

It's a mixed marriage- and that has its own unique challenges.

One reason I'm really glad I found this group.
