Exploring the complexities and joys of loving more

Exploring the complexities and joys of loving more

Authors: Sarah Mountford & Lauren Verweij for Self Studies

Relationships are connections between two or more people, places, things, or ideas. They can be strong or weak, positive or negative, and can involve a variety of emotions. Relationships can be between family members, friends, colleagues, or even strangers. They can be based on trust, respect, love, or a variety of other factors.

Let's explore the complexities and joys of relationships where there is even more love to give; a polyamorous relationship and a throuple.

A polyamorous relationship is a type of relationship in which the people involved have a romantic and/or sexual relationship with more than one person at the same time. It is distinct from swinging, in which couples have multiple sexual relationships with other couples, and from polygamy, in which multiple partners are married to each other. Polyamorous relationships can take many forms and can involve any combination of genders, sexual orientations, and ages.

In polyamorous relationships, all partners are aware of and consent to the other partners, while in throuples, the three people involved are in a committed relationship with each other.

The future of relationships is likely to become more open and accepting of different types of relationships, including polyamorous and throuple relationships. As society becomes more accepting of different types of relationships, it is likely that more people will feel comfortable exploring these types of relationships. This could lead to more people being open to different types of relationships, which could lead to more successful relationships in the future.

But in all of these maybes there is always one always. You are the constant in your life. Be sure to love yourself first.
