Nonsense. There are a great many factors that can weigh in making such a decision and none of them have anything to do with polyamory.

That's my code...Poly partners are for life! Always! Otherwise, you are just having an affair!
I'm quite happy that your personal standards in no fashion apply to anybody else. The rest of us reserve the right to leave any relationship if it gets dysfunctional and take care of ourselves.

And you do realize that nobody can have an affair if they're engaged in ethical nonmonogamy, right? Or do we need to review some basics with you?

I get the idea from reading your messages that you're unclear as to what polyamory involves.
When speaking of various forms of ain't poly if you're just fucking around.

While polyamory, open relationships, and swinging are all distinctly different approaches to non-monogamy, they are not mutually exlusive. Folks can, and some do, engage in more than one of them at a time--and it's all good.
