Dont be so quick to judge this post

Before watching this, let me explain. I am in no way using this video to oppose gay marriage or saying this is what gay marriage is bringing to America.

I just found this interesting.

Polyamorous Lifestyle of WA Family Inspires Web Sitcom


  1. This is so ironic... straight people sharing mates; this is the legacy of polygamy! What on earth does this have to do with the monogamous marriage of two people who love each other?

    You may not know this, but polyamory has a place in Mormon history. It wasn't always one man with multiple wives. Joseph Smith took wives who were already married to other men, effectively sharing them. See http://www.wivesofjosephsmith.org for a list and biographies. I find it hysterically ironic that LDS people think that monogamous gay marriage might be the antecedent of heterosexual polygamy.

  2. You obviously did not read my comment before the video.

  3. Wow, my first reaction is that these people are incredibly secure in their romantic identity. It's very fascinating but like the Professor said, I'm not sure how long it can last.

  4. Hi Quinn,

    I guess I misunderstood. I thought your comment before the video was motivated by what you had heard or suspected that others would say.

    I also don't think polyamorous relationships are built for the long term. Both of my grandmothers were children of polygamous marriages (back when the Church did this). I heard them tell very unhappy stories of the problems it caused. Let's just say that they were not fans of the system.
