I was teasing you about that choice of words because a couple is TWO. If one of them is poly, there are MORE THAN TWO in the relationship. Any people involved beyond two should not automatically be considered "extra" to a couple. There are so many dynamics possible. It seems that you're still thinking very monogamously!
