Do we ever wise up to understanding that the intense passion morphs into a comfortable realization that the person we fell for was temporary?

Sunday Jan 2, 2022
Polyamorous relationships are quickly becoming recognized, honored, and respected for the loving, trusting, healthy relationships that they are. And while they are not right for everyone, the permission of having options to choose poly over monogamy is now a lifestyle any one of us can adopt for ourselves.
Before I tackle an episode around the details on the types of relationships, the rules that need to be considered, and all the responsibilities that come with multiple partners, I sat down with Mary, who shared her personal experience on her journey.
