Polyamorous relationships is the practice of engaging in multiple intimate relationships with the consent of all the people involved. Many people compare polyamory to cheating or swinging. But, in reality, polyamory is quite different.

What is polyamory?

Cheating means breaking the rules. If your partner doesn’t agree with including other people in your relationship, then you are cheating.

In a polyamorous relationship, everyone knows about and agrees to the involvement of other people in the relationship.

Polyamory is all about respect, open communication, and the ability to live love on terms that work for the people involved in the relationship.

Cristina Kaiser and her husband Benno have been married for several years now, and share three children together. After 12 years of marriage, however, Cristina began to feel like something was missing from their lives.

While Cristina is still in love with Benno, she asked him how he would feel about them introducing a woman into their relationship. Cristina is bisexual, and was hoping she and Benno could have an open marriage. Much to her surprise, Benno agreed, and she began dating other people.

When Christana met Sierra she proposed her to join their open marriage.

”At first I was very hesitant about getting involved with a married couple. I was worried that I would be disposable and that this was a phase they were going through. But when I spent time with them I realized what they wanted and feel this was a situation I could work with, so I jumped on board,”

Benno also felt a great connection with the girl. He said:

Sara and Christina and I all clicked and shortly after our first date we knew that we were meant to be with her and that this was something we wanted to pursue. It was just the natural course to take - to have her move into the home. My feelings for the both are equal. I love them both without question. They are both very much part of my life and I couldn’t imagine living my life without either of them,”

Over time, Cristina and Benno decided the best thing to do would be to file for divorce and free themselves of marriage, but not each other.

Now, either Cristina or Benno will marry Sierra so that all three will have legal rights to their children.

The happy threesome share the responsibilities of raising three children.

The children, in fact, feel absolutely happy to have 2 moms and 1 dad. They say that while their friends think it's weird to have 2 mothers, they always feel double support and love.

Well, it seems that there is no “correct” type of love and relationship. People should look inside themselves and determine what type of relationship is right for them.
