How do you feel about others in polyatomic relationships?

When I was younger we sold our house to a trio of people in a relationship and my father had some harsh things to say about it. In my experience, I have mostly heard negative things about people who conform to this. How do you feel about it?

Live and let live. It's not what I do, but I see absolutely nothing wrong with polyamory.

Not really sure what you are asking. How do I feel about negative comments about people living in a triad? I think it's a shame these same people don't get to know the triad and form an educated opinion about the triad. Let's face it there are some married folk that give married folk a bad name...same with triad folk. Still if you met my husband, life partner and I you'd never know we were 'different' or 'strange'. Our children are polite, articulate and normal. We have been called BORINGLY normal even though we are wiccan, homeschoolers, Catholic (life partner and son), polyamorous and in a committed triad. My guys don't act any different than other hetero men because they aren't they just happen to both love me to pieces.
I think it's sad that people feel it makes them look better when they are negative about other's chosen lifestyle, fact it it doesn't amke you look better just makes you look negative and judgemental.

I have no ill will or any kind of negative thoughts towards other people and their relationship dynamics. How you live your life is up to you. So long as children and animals aren't involved, and everyone is consenting, have at it!

My feeling is this: If they are HAPPY, and they aren't hurting anyone, then who's to say it's "not right"? And furthermore, who DOES know what's "right and wrong"?

So many people in this world are miserable. If being with an additional person (or, additional people!) makes them live a better, happier life, then I say that's wonderful!!

Personally, it's not for me..and that's only because I currently have one man only that I love, and am attracted to..But, who's to say I wouldn't feel differently if I was not with my husband??

Also, one could say that people with more than one lover are getting the 'best of both worlds' (to use a cliche!)..Especially those with male AND female lovers...Those people will never be missing anything relationship-wise!
