Married and dating polyamory
It’s not exactly shocking that the show would be cast this way, especially with regard to the attractiveness of the participants.But I still reserve the right to complain about it.I just know that people in general tend to hyper-focus on the sex lives of poly people rather than considering our relationships, and the show didn’t do much to discourage that kind of thinking.Things I liked: The relationships were all serious, long term, and committed between more than two partners.
I don’t know what the ratings were like, but I can only imagine that at least a reasonable number of people now know that polyamorous relationships exist thanks to the show.That’s more personal preference than a real criticism of what the folks on the show are or aren’t doing, but it wasn’t entirely relatable for me.And I do have a big criticism of one cast member accusing his wife of not being poly for not wanting to share her girlfriend with him.But just as a head’s up, I’m condensing my thoughts on all 7 episodes into one post here, and I’m not going to spend my time doing a recap on every episode, so bear with me if it’s a little jumbled.
I do recommend checking out the show for yourself if you haven’t already, both because it is worth watching and because it will probably make my rambling here seem a lot more coherent.
They certainly saw their own commitment ceremony as a revolutionary act, beyond simply one of personal significance.
