My partner has a relationship status of "in an open relationship" and has listed me and my metamour as "Partners" in the family section. He did create a page for the both of us, so he could have "In an open relationship with..." but I was neither here nor there about that.

My metamour has "in an open relationship" and has listed him as Partner.

I (Mono) have "in a relationship" and have listed him as Partner.

The creation of the page on FB for the two of us seemed to get some mutual friends' knickers in a twist ("OMG, he's being arrogant and bragging, and..." <sigh>), but he wanted to give us both billing rather than give nobody billing, and it seemed like a decent way of doing that.

I'm listed as being in an open relationship with Curly (my wife). I just got entangled with a new partner and she is listed as a Partner. I'd like to be able to put all of my partners together in a group at the head of the family listing; currently FB just adds them to the list in the fashion it chooses.
When speaking of various forms of non-monogamy...it 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.
