I think it partly depends on how involved you want your relationships to be. For those who are more introverted or independent, like me and my long-distance SOs, an intimate relationship can function pretty much like a close friendship. There's no need for frequent contact or regular face-to-face time, and it's okay for the level of contact to wax and wane a bit depending on everyone's personal circumstances. Admittedly, this also has to do with our kooky relationship views, which don't draw a clear-cut line between friendships and intimate relationships.

I'm childfree, but I'd imagine some poly people with kids might treat their relationships more like common friendships too (in terms of involvement/time spent together anyway), voluntarily or not.
