Losing friends because of Monogamy

Polyamory Uncensored Podcast - Episode 4 Review

Towards the end of the 4th episode it was discussed on how some monogamous couples can start losing friends.

My initial reaction was “how’s that possible? If people choose to be exclusive towards one another, that’s their choice, so why do they lose friends?”

As soon as I finished asking that specific question, I had a moment of clarity and the answer came to me immediately, so here is why some monogamists lose friendships once they enter into relationships.

The discussion went on to say how some monogamists couples lose their individual identities once they enter into a relationship and become one combined person, basically one or both member(s) of the relationship follows the makeup of the other’s beliefs, and to be more specific, the choices.

Therefore, friends can start to distant themselves from one another because they had given up a big portion of their individuality once they got into a relationship and they no longer feel they have bond with that friend because they have forfeited that part of their life in exchange for the relationship.

I see Poly people as enjoying connecting with others who can think for themselves and provide their own spin on life without being negatively influenced or controlled by others, basically they seek out relationships that are honest, genuine and sincere. Regardless of the relationships Poly people entered into, one objective they will not compromise is to give up their individuality.

And Poly relationships can fall anywhere in the Poly spectrum from a non romantic/good friends type to all the way up to an romantic/emotional and possibly a sexual relationship, which all depends on the dynamics of the “relationship” to where it will be placed in the spectrum.

This PODCAST is awesome

Missed opportunities

I feel like there have been some missed opportunities in the interviews about the poly lifestyle and home life with different partners. In one episode a person said they were the ones who brought up poly to heir husband. That would have been a great time to ask how the husband reacted to it and how was he adjusting to the changes. In another episode the interviewee talked about how they were considering letting a partner have their basement space for projects because they live 40 minutes from where their daughter went to school. Again, maybe a question about how the husband felt about giving up space in his house to another man.
I am also interested in any stories about polyamory that didn’t go well. It seems like very many people are divorced on your podcast and. Wonder what, if any, part polyamory played. I am also interested in hearing about stories where one partner wanted poly an done partner didn’t. Good luck in the future with your podcast.

I can’t wait to see where this podcast is going to go, it could be cool to have some males interviewed too! Keep up the amazing work!
