The reason redpepper asked that question is because Polyandry is actually a type of multiple marriage, under the blanket term of Polygamy. Not many people here use that term and prefer Polyamory.
You can do a search for keywords like "one vagina policy" which will explain the differences.

My wife and I identify with the polyandry model.

I would identify with polyandry as such if I had a ceremony I think as its about marriage... for now though, polyamory means many loves and that fits just about everything under the poly banner to me. It's an umbrella term for most ethically responsible non-monogamy terms I think.
