My family kind of pushed their way in and I had to tell them to back off and leave us alone. Then again being polyamorous was only a check mark in a long list of things my family doesn't approve of about me.
Sigel's family honestly couldn't care less about him let alone who he is sleeping with and Arch's Mom and Dad love him enough to be happy that he is much happier with Sigel and I than he was without. We work and it has made us better people so we don't tend to hide who we are and what we do...except when it comes to sex. We firmly believe that our children have no business knowing about our sexual practices and we do not allow them in the bedroom in that fashion. We are affectionate toward each other and they know we are a "triple" (as opposed to a couple) but they don't know much more than that.
Our friend's are fairly supportive and if they have problems with our choices they don't tend to stick around very long. Not that we drive them away but we don't believe in changing who we are to suit someone else's notions of propriety. Honestly, if you met us in public you would think we are all just a "normal" family despite mixing paganism and catholicism and being poly!
