I should soo be sleeping right now, but I saw "throuple" and had to read this thread, now I have unanswered questions.

Almost half were a V or similar arrangement.

I like statistics.
Does anyone have the stats for V’s? success versus ending within say a year?
Oh and what Nycindie said, what is the success rate for people who “stumble” into a triad situation versus the previously described stereotype?

What about other configurations?
There are lots of configurations right? What are the stats for poly as a whole?

I wonder if there’s an article out there somewhere that explores this.
Gonna wander off to scour the interwebs for more info. Interesting thought.

How long need a relationship last to be considered successful? Not all relationships last a lifetime, but that does not mean they were unsuccessful for the time they were there. Research time!!

Does anyone already have any other references on this?

If I find any answers I'll share.
