As happy days go by in your polyamorous or polygamist life it’s easy to forget about the inevitable changes coming in the future. All sister wives will face uncertainty when a husband finds a new sister wife to court. Any partner will feel a twinge of jealousy when a new love interest presents itself. There is real fear in not knowing what to expect. The best way to approach new relationships alongside your existing one will be a little different for everyone. Different people will struggle with different factors. Being prepared requires introspection and the ability to communicate your feelings honestly and without judgement. 

Imagine you’re out having a fun night in a busy club. You and your partner have been chatting with attractive people and enjoying a dance with them when your favorite songs come on. You felt some attraction but haven’t considered expressing that attraction but suddenly notice your partner is making out with one of your new friends. It can initially be shocking and hurtful but it’s important to approach the situation logically. Have you discussed the rules in situations like this? Have you set up basic standards to follow when you do find another interest? Are these actions meant to be hurtful to you or is it naive fun that’s crossed a line, in your opinion? 

In a polygamist family this situation is somewhat unlikely as a man seeking a sister wife typically finds them in other ways. However, in many polyamorous relationships, a night out as described above is not an uncommon occurrence. It’s important to consider you shouldn’t be too angry over rules being broken by someone that didn’t know the rule existed. There is outright rude and disrespectful behavior and there is behavior in which the perpetrator may have no idea they’re being hurtful. This is why discussing practices and standards is so important with your poly partners. Comfort levels are diverse. Knowing your partners comfort levels is key to respecting their boundaries and making sure everyone stays happy. 

Even in a polygamist family the same standard of communication is important. A husband dating a new sister wife needs to be aware if certain behaviors are going to unknowingly hurt an existing sister wife. It cannot be expected that no romance be allowed in new polyamorous situations so be reasonable in your demands. It is equally unfair to make demands that could prevent any new relationship forming in addition to your own. If you find yourself unable to handle your partner having romantic involvement with another person you may want to reconsider being a sister wife or your involvement in a poly relationship at all. Polygamy and polyamory don’t follow normal monogamous standards. They require an open heart and mind. 

Talk to your partners. Every sister wife and every polyamorous person has feelings that deserve respect. The conversation doesn’t have to be heavy or serious. It’s fine to discuss things in hypothetical terms simply to reveal the feelings of everyone involved and form standards that respect everyone as well. As a sister wife you even have the benefit of other involved women to run ideas by first. The important factor is that you’re not keeping your feelings to yourself. Being prepared for, and ahead of, difficult situations will get your love life back on track handily. Celebrate your polygamist family or polyamorous love life. Love without limits is a beautiful thing.

It’s that time of year when red hearts and specialty chocolates greet you at your favorite stores and florists are gearing up to sell millions of roses. Valentine’s Day is a time to celebrate your love and appreciate the joy your love brings. Those in the world of polyamory have a lot of love to celebrate and multiple opportunities to be creative and make it a perfect day. Whether you’re preparing a surprise or planning magical moments together, don’t forget to make your Valentine’s Day unique to you and the loves of your life. 

If you’re a polygamist family it may be time to have a special dinner at home with all the sister wives being treated to a catered meal or maybe a big dinner out. Don’t stick them doing dishes! You could also spread Valentine’s through the week and find personal time to spend with each of your love’s. This time of year brings a lot of attention to finding a date so it’s a great time to find a sister wife. Women wanting to be a sister wife will have an extraordinary story to tell if she can join the whole prospective family for a special dinner on Valentine’s Day. She’ll also have wonderful insight on the dynamics of a happy polygamist family and how she might fit in. Sister wives and Valentine’s day are a recipe for beautiful moments and memories.  

Polyamorous relationships are especially fortunate with the opportunity this time of the year presents. With no limit to one lover and the freedom to forge your own traditions, outside of narrow expectations, one can create unique and unforgettable moments. Bringing two, or more, separate lovers together for a special evening can be fun and enlightening. Events with other polyamorous groups are always a great time. Exploring new possibilities is a perfect way to celebrate the love you already know. Mix it up and have fun on this day of romance! Do know and be respectful of your partner’s boundaries. Not everyone likes to mix things up or be surprised. 

There are plenty of poly people that have no interest in Valentine’s Day. Keep in mind that even if you’re not a fan there is nothing wrong with acknowledging the day and doing a little something to make sure your lovers know you care about them. Few people truly enjoy being completely left out of a tradition. If you insist on protesting Valentine’s Day at least come up with another special day. Celebrating love is too important to ignore. Keeping it simple with a small gift is always touching. Small moments and gestures can have incredible impact.

If you have the great fortune of finding a new sister wife this time of year, or of bringing together two of your lovers, count yourself a lucky soul. Few get to know the beauty a polygamist family experiences or the happiness polyamory makes possible. Maybe you already have everything you need. Celebrate it. Make your Polygamist Valentine’s Day or Poly Valentine’s something to remember. You’ll never regret your efforts and multiplying love is always a good idea. Happy Valentine’s Day!

Polygamy and polyamory are all over media lately. The possibility of forging your own relationship style promises lives that were previously left to only wild imaginations. Acceptance of women who choose to be sister wives and of people that choose to maintain multiple lovers is widespread and it allows opportunity for happiness previously unheard of. When ideas are trending it’s easy to buy into the hype. New things sound so exciting! Even with the amazing experiences a poly lifestyle can bring there are difficult times and situations to be considered. Polygamy and polyamory are not for everyone. If you believe either is right for you here is a helpful process to help you be prepared.

The first step is consideration - 

What are the real motivations behind your desire to find sister wives or to date multiple people? If sex is your core drive you should take a step back and determine if you’re ready for any relationship at all. Having multiple sexual partners doesn’t have to involve commitment and it’s important to be honest with your encounters about your motivation. If finding a sister wife or multiple relationships appeals to a deeper sense of being whole your approach to dating will need to reflect your ideas of building close connections with prospective partners. Either approach is valid and you need to know where you stand. 

Your family, friends, and maybe even current lover can be daunting hurdles when you consider adopting a polyamorous or polygamist life. It’s devastating if you’re already involved in a relationship and they refuse the life you want to explore. Your family and friends may not be able to accept your choices. Ultimately, the choice is yours, but affecting other lives negatively is no good way to begin. If you know you cannot be happy in a fully monogamous lifestyle you will need a game plan.

The second step is planning - 

Before you can start searching for a sister wife or poly date you have to prepare yourself and anyone around you that will be affected. Telling your wife you’d like to find a sister wife might seem impossible but it has to be done and the fallout has to be dealt with. You’ll regret it far worse acting autonomously if you’re already involved in a relationship. Your family and friends can come later but the early plan has to involve transparency and honesty with current lovers. If you’re shut down you have to return to step one and decide how much its worth to you. 

Once your plan to reveal yourself as a polyamorous or polygamist person is in action you can begin planning your approach. Determine exactly how you want your family or relationships to be and find the aspects that will fulfill your heart’s desires. Once you know where you stand it’s time to begin your search.

The third step is implementation - 

During the planning process you’ll come across several options for approaching a polyamorous life. Being an active member of a poly community, online or IRL, will be one of the biggest sources of support and appropriate options for dating. Be clear with people, and in your profile, about what you’re looking for and be open to new ideas. It’s rare we don’t evolve as we become more familiar with things. Learn as much as you can from every encounter and always give back by sharing your experiences with others. Building your relationships and new friendships will be an award in itself. Eventually you’ll have the home or relationships you worked hard to achieve.  

The fourth step is sustaining - 

Finding sister wives to build a polygamist home is an exciting process. Maintaining that home should also be something that brings everyone involved joy. Finding multiple lovers of any sort is greatly rewarding and should continue bringing joy for years to come. Working together to resolve issues and providing an environment of love and understanding will make all of your efforts worth it. Never forget your days back on step one when considering your deep desires and the love and understanding you needed to fulfill your life. Times may come when someone you love has to follow their heart away from you. Don’t make it more difficult than it already is. Love is a complicated thing and not every relationship has to be forever. Be the person you’ve needed others to be in every situation. 

Being a sister wife or in any polyamorous relationship is rewarding if it’s right for you, but with great things comes great responsibility. There are more hearts to handle carefully and situations can be more complicated with more people involved. It takes a strong person to successfully maintain a polygamist or polyamorous life. Is it right for you?
