    This episode is not only about polyamory through generations but features a special guest, DJ. DJ is Monsuta's eldest daughter and also a mother of two. She shares her experiences as a child of a practicing nonmonogamist and how it has affected both her view on relationships as well as how it has helped shape her own life. She even allows us the opportunity to learn a little bit of her polyamorous exploration.

    Coronavirus and Relationship Management

    Coronavirus and Relationship Management

    These are scary and strange times between a fear of catching or passing along a virus to stress and anxiety about being quarantined in your home on lock down without work to pay bills. We wanted to reach out to our polyam fam and tell you that you aren't alone. We are here. Bella is scared, Monsuta is prepared and always her rock and we will get through this together.

    How are your relationships in the middle of all of this? What are you doing to nurture each other from a distance? Or how are you staying sane when feeling smothered and stuck together in a small apartment? Let's all remember to reach out and show love. There are so many ways with technology that we can help each other feel connected in isolating times.

    The Long Division of Emotional Intelligence

    The Long Division of Emotional Intelligence

    Emotional Intelligence is the capacity to be aware of, control, and express one's emotions, and to handle interpersonal relationships judiciously and empathetically. This week Bella and Monsuta have a conversation about how we can improve our emotional intelligence skills to be better in our relationships at managing our own emotions and recognizing what others are feeling. Bella decides to take a bath during recording so come join us in the bubbles for a conversation with some take away info that will hopefully be helpful for you just like it was for us.

    Metrics For A Successful Relationship

    Metrics For A Successful Relationship

    What makes a relationship "successful"? How do you measure the success of any of your relationships? Most of us never sit down to consider these things and then when a relationship ends we feel like it "failed", but did it really? I mean do you have great memories? Did you learn a lot from each other? Did you walk away with a great friend? Was the sex fantastic while it lasted? These are all ways to reflect on a relationship and see its success without needing to use the traditional view of time as how to measure success. Monsuta and Bella chat about all this and more.
