#057 Protecting Your Relationships is Just Good Poly

February 4, 2019

We get a lot of shade from internet warriors when we talk about protecting your existing relationships.

These comments usually sound something like this: “If you feel that you need to protect any of your relationships then polyamory isn’t for you.”

That’s a lie, plain and simple. And folks who treat their relationships this way tend to wind up single and brokenhearted in short order.

Here’s the truth: Wanting to protect your existing relationships doesn’t mean that you’re bad at poly, that you value new partners less than old ones, or even prescribe a hierarchical relationship structure. Rather it’s a way of ensuring that the relationships you do have are nurtured and allowed to reach their fullest potential.

On this episode, we’re going to discuss the concept of protecting your relationships and show you how adopting this mindset is the best way to ensure that ALL your relationships are happy and healthy, no matter what their structure.
