Person:”Are you seeing my friend or this other girl?”
Me:”I’m seeing them both”.
Person:”So you’re cheating on them?”
Me:”No. They both know; we’re all friends and we’re happy that way.”
Person:”Well, which do you love?”
Me:”I love them both.”
Person:”Which do you love more?”
Me:”I don’t understand the question. They’re different people. How do you measure?”
Person:”Why don’t you commit to one of them?”
Me:”Why can’t I commit to both of them?”
Many people just do not understand what it means to be polygamous. As a result those who do not conform to standard and normalized monogamy are often questioned and seen as confused or crazy. This should not be the case. Why does there have to be a right and wrong? A good and bad? Love and relationships should be something that is personal and personalized. No one should feel they need to explain their decisions to others, and no one should experience someone telling them what they feel is wrong. I hope for a society that can one day accept all types and forms of love.
