Is Polyamory Right for Your Gay Relationship?

Feb 13 '2023, 2:36 PM | By Chris

Is gay relationship polyamory right for you? Is polyamory within a gay relationship even a real concept? Actually, there is an infinite spectrum when it comes to polyamory. So, it should come as no surprise that gay relationships can partake in the polyamorous lifestyle.

Is there a right way and a wrong way for those in a gay relationship to explore polyamory? As with any relationship, the rules and ideals followed are up to the individuals themselves. There is no wrong. There is no right.

Let's look at some basics when it comes to polyamory and gay relationships. With the following information, you may be able to decide if polyamory is right for you.

What Is a Polyamorous Relationship?

Those involved in polyamory approach dating, love, and romantic relationships in a non-monogamous manner. With more than one person at a time, they can be romantically involved, with all parties having given consent.

Are there rules? The rules of any relationship are defined more by the people in them than by any kind of "label" attached to the relationship itself. Polyamorous can be defined as one person with multiple partners, throuples, a primary partnership that also includes others, and more. The specifics and possibilities are relatively as limitless as the people involved.

The thing to keep in mind is that these relationships are, indeed, devoted/committed and romantic. Polyamorous relationships should not be confused with "open" relationships. Typically, outside of a primary partnership, people have sexual encounters and/or dates with others in an open relationship. Again, commitment, devotion, and romantic involvement are all part of polyamorous relationships.

Gay or Straight – Does It Matter?

A polyamorous relationship is, more or less, a polyamorous relationship. As long as it has the above-stated characteristics, the gay or straight aspect doesn't really matter all that much. If there will be both male and female participants, this would, of course, need to be agreed upon ahead of time. That would likely classify the relationship more as bi than flat out gay or straight.

These are labels, however, and labels are becoming less and less appropriate – no matter what kind of relationship you're in or who you prefer to have your relationships with.

Not Meant As a "Fix"

What you shouldn't do is pursue polyamory as a "fix" for a relationship that is or is becoming broken. This is not a means of repair. It is a lifestyle that consenting adults pursue involving committed, loving relationships between multiple partners. It is not a "go ahead" for an open relationship.

Though the rules you set up within the relationship will apply to your unique situation and each person individually, they must be discussed and agreed upon ahead of time for the relationship to work. As stated earlier, there is no "right" or "wrong" way to pursue a relationship, as long as all parties are in agreement and it works for everyone.
