Loved the quote when I read it too.
I think that sometimes poly does end up being the catalyst that cures an unhappy reason, but not because POLY causes the cure. Because poly causes so much introspection, honesty and faithful work on oneself and THOSE THINGS can cure a relationship nightmare.
I think it's cruel to everyone involved to go this route, better to just get off your asses and do the work, then if you still have an interest in multiple loves, go for it.
Much like we tell people not to get married out of "need for help" because it's unhealthy. No relationship should be started to "fix" something.
