#022: How To Add A Third (Or Fourth) To Your Relationship

There are as many structures of poly relationships as there are people who do poly. Some folks date in webs where with little interaction between partners. Others (like us) form some of their romantic relationships between members of a group. This type of poly comes with its own rewards… and it’s own challenges.
