Yes, why would a couple want an unicorn? That's been discussed a lot, but I think one strong reason is that it does feel like a continuation of the marriage/established relationship and thus less foreign and threatening.
I've had people tell me 'it's you or it's no one - if thinks don't work out with you we are not even interested in poly'. Then they stop contacting me and I'm left wondering as to why? Too threatening? I'm going with too threatening. We want so many things that we would be scared shitless to actually have.
