What do people think about polyamorous relationships? I personally don't see the problem with it and think people should be able to do as they want. It is becoming more normal in western society today so should it become legal?

I think consensual ethical polygamy is fine.

Not against it, however, wouldn't be apart of one.

Do you have any sources to back up "It is becoming more normal in western..."?

If all parties are happy, it isn't done for some sort of fraud, and completely consentual then why not.

I think the problem comes if you want to marry, polygamous marriage isn't legal in the UK I believe? Also, what sort of impact would a polygamous relationship have on children? I would hope those in the relationship would research these things though

Could probably written it in a better way. What I mean is that more people have opened up about living in a polyamorous relationship (based on articles, videos etc.).

It's a fine choice for the small number of individuals whose brains function in a way that fits a poly relationship

But as a societal norm it would be a disaster.

In a polygamous marriage are all of the people that you're married to also married to each other?

Sometimes, not always.

A man married to multiple wives simultaneously is called Polygyny.

A woman married to multiple husbands is called Polyandry.

Group Marriage is where the whole unit is married to each other, for example: Man 1 is married to woman 1 and woman 2. Man 2 is married to woman woman 1 and woman 2. Woman 1 is married to man 1 and man 2. Woman 2 is married to man 1 and man 2 and so on for more spouses.

I don’t know if there are names for multiple spouses of the same gender eg man 1 is married to husband 1 and husband 2.
