The concept of a polyamory relationship can be new for you as traditionally a love relationship needs two individuals who come closer to each other to complete their relationship. It was popularly known as a monogamy relationship in which people marry with their soul mate and live compromisingly with him/her throughout their life and have children, even if there is no or less compatibility among them. In such cases people go for love relationships with others which may cause divorce or infidelity among the married couples.

The increasing rate of infidelity and divorce incidents had proved that people are not satisfied with their monogamous relationship in their life. A single person may not be perfect to fulfill anyone’s all types of needs including intellectual, love and sexual etc. because everyone has individual interests. This idea has given birth to multiple love relationships or polyamorous relationships which are defined as multiple relationships with the mutual consent of the partners.

Though it is not easy to accept the concept of polyamorous relationships, as monogamy is in social practice since long but if people understand this concept precisely then it will be easy to control the cases of divorce and infidelity in the society. Some benefits of a polyamorous relationship are provided hereunder to understand this concept more accurately.

This type of relationship may cause jealousy to your existing partners due to the depth of your relationship with your polyamorous partner. Jealousy may be felt by your spouse due to the insecure feeling arising in his/her mind caused by the increasing time spent with the polyamorous partner. There may be a sexual relationship with the polyamorous partner with time, due to human nature but if you are honest with your relationship them it can last longer without any problem. In this way you can have someone who can understand your emotions without any sexual relationship.

Meet needs without any mental stress:

This relationship allows you to enjoy the best features of many people at a time which can increase the possibility of fulfilling your needs more accurately. People in your polyamorous relationship can be perfect in different fields as no two persons can behave similarly. Suppose you need children from your married beloved partner but he/she is not ready then either you will have to adjust with your partner or remain stressed about your needs. A Polyamorous relationship allows you to fulfill your parenting need from your other partner without disturbing your relationship with your married life partner. In this way you can easily get all the things which your single monogamy partner can not provide you at a time.
