I'm something of a proud mama at the moment. My daughter who is quite conservatively christian is finally opening up more of a dialogue about polyamory (she even read and commented on my blog).
One point she makes that I do wonder about is this. She believes that the need to love more than one person is somehow about not being connected to god. She puts it alongside a number of other things that divert us from a spiritual path.
I think that there can be a spiritual aspect of most things we do and polyamory can be a spiritual experience. But I also wonder if the compromising of oneself in order to be with another e.g. as in a polymono relationship, can also be used as a spiritual experience in the same way as other sacrifices or hardships?
