My girlfriend recently got involved with someone who has a Don’t Ask Don’t Tell policy with his wife. Even though my partner and I’ve never had a DADT agreement, my meta is enforcing a DADT through my partner and refusing to engage with me on any level. I feel like I’m going crazy.
I want to be in a polyfidelitous relationship with my partner. But I can’t look past the negative criticism against poly-fi relationships, especially online. Is poly-fi even viable? How can we ethically look for our third?
I keep having small fights and bouts with my partner’s other partners. My partner doesn’t think that he can date others without getting someone upset. How can I be a better metamour for his future partners?
I realized during this COVID quarantine that my boyfriend means a lot more to me than I originally thought. While my husband and I theoretically practiced non-hierarchical polyamory, we’ve never had to put that theory into practice. So what can I expect as my relationships become more egalitarian?
My polyamorous relationship has grown and changed a lot in the past five years. But I am struggling to feel prioritized in my relationship even though it is by default non-hierarchical. Is this a problem that I need to focus on? How can I manage these feelings of insecurity?

However, after meeting someone he doesn’t want to label either relationships as primary or secondary due to making it seem, in his mind, that one relationship is […]
/u/Kase_maschine writes on /r/polyamory… “I’m wondering for those who ventured into poly by “opening up” a mono marriage, how do you work with being poly yet minimize the hierarchy that can come with having a spouse/nesting partner?
