“I’ll think of the week, and be like, OK, when do I want a sleepover with my boyfriend?
It’s not necessarily spontaneous.” And Stryker admits it’s not for everyone.
According to a study published in the in April 2016, 21 percent of people have had a nonmonogamous relationship—one in which “all partners agree that each may have romantic and/or sexual relationships with other partners.” The data, pulled from 8,718 respondents in the annual Singles in America survey, is clear: Polyamory—having more than one sexual or romantic partner, with all partners agreeing to the arrangement—is a common type of relationship.
But even though it may be common, that doesn’t mean it’s easily understood.
Together, Marston, Holloway, and Byrne engaged in a relationship that not only produced In fact, the movie's portrayal of the relationship (which, according to Marston's personal letters, seems to be accurate) is a great example of how successful polyamorous relationships can be.
"A common misconception is that polyamorous relationships are about sex," says Rena Mc Daniel, MEd, a clinical sexologist and licensed therapist.
The stereotype of how these relationships form usually goes like this: One partner badgers another partner to include a third into the mix, with one or more of them reluctantly agreeing to a situation they're ultimately uncomfortable with.
And I think people outside the polyamorous community may not understand that the two aren’t necessarily the same thing,” says Turner.
To maintain their emotional bond, Turner and her husband developed a system: The pair subscribed to a monthly wine club where they got four bottles of wine delivered to their door; they promised that, no matter what, they would drink the wine together by the end of every month.
In fact, Byrne's sons didn't know that Marston was their father until 1963 — nearly 20 years after his death.) What's more is that Holloway and Byrne continued to live together after Marston's death in 1947, giving even more credence to the idea that this relationship was something both of them chose — not something the man in their lives hoisted upon them.
