There's no rule that says a polyamorous relationship has to be a healthy, happy relationship in order to get the poly-stamp. Any more than a marriage has to be happy and healthy to be a marriage. Now, to be a GOOD marriage, and a GOOD polyamorous relationship, that's a different story all together...
