Poly GG Two Boyfriends
Not for anything bad or unhappy. Looking into getting legal documents done for my poly family, to make it easier to deal with things like hospital vistitation, medical power of attorney, survival custody issues, etc.

I'm hitting a few poly professional resource pages I know of - but am a bit frustrated as I think they're now out of date and I can't seem to find anything online currently about the all-of-two options I've found.

Anybody know of any? Thanks much.

Polyamory advocates break new ground before one of Canada’s highest courts, with media coverage to match. A happy poly household is featured on TV, with toddler. We read that “Three is the new two,” “Poly is the new gay,” and “Is polyamory the new black?” Deborah Anapol weighs upsides and downsides. And a study uncovers a pathetic truth: most young lovers don’t even hear each other’s agreements regarding monogamy.

I am excited and wanted to share with other poly people what's going on in our poly lives (though some of you knew already): baby!

Polyamory’s most important court case since 1999 opens next week, and this time our side is prepared. Meanwhile, TV documentaries on polyfamilies in Quebec and Denmark show how TV can do it right if the producers are so inclined. In the U.S., “Sister Wives” sets the new public image for group families, and that’s not so bad. Writers from Dan Savage to a friendly Episcopal priest weigh in on poly life. And the poly-mono anthropology debate rolls on.

8th-Sep-2010 11:26 am - Out at preschool
Poly heart
My, it's amazing how much I can get away with being out as poly. Mostly by emphasizing the kids and family part of it.

Our youngest is in two preschool programs here in town, one M-W and one T-Th. Apparently some other family caused problems with a noncustodial parent picking up a kid, and then we had to all fill out paperwork listing who all is authorized to pick up the child and who is not, and anybody they don't know by sight has to produce photo ID.

So I fill out the paperwork listing the three of us, and putting down under "relationship" Mama, Daddy, and Papa. All one address. While picking her up today and doing the set of paperwork for the M-W class, one of the two ladies running the class was asking me "so the one who dropped her off this morning, that's Daddy?" Yes. "And the other man, that she always wants to be put up on his shoulders, that's ... Papa?" Yes. "Is that her... stepfather?" It's complicated, I say - the lady says oh, we don't mean to pry - I say that's fine, people don't always get us, but yes, consider it that she has three parents. "As long as you love her!" chirps the preschool lady, and I tell her oh yes, this child has been surrounded by so much love all her life.

I've been filling out the older kids' school paperwork with the three of us as Mama, Daddy, and Papa too, and nobody seems to have a problem with it at all.

A hot new book matches poly to our evolved human nature. A legal scholar examines what will happen if poly is viewed as a sexual orientation. Get ready for “the new monogamy,” the coming term for non-monogamy. Stranger in a Strange Land redux. Great radio and TV. Conservatives flip out.

I'm considering moving in with my partner and his wife. They have an established household that includes a three-year-old; I am currently pregnant with his second child, my first. I'd love your advice. Have you moved into an established household before? Do you have any recommendations, or dos and don'ts? I'd read a really great article on this subject before that I can no longer find. Extensive googling hasn't turned it up. Do you know of any good articles on cohabiting, whether poly-specific or not?

Thanks!

Politicians spend millions to define who they are to the public before their opponents can do it for them. The modern polyamory movement has been defining itself successfully with nothing but volunteers, enthusiasm, and a shoestring. When does the backlash start? I keep waiting for it, and year after year it keeps not happening.

Breakthroughs have been happening in public notice and recognition of the polyamory alternative. Newsweek, CNN, ABC’s Nightline, MTV, bigtime evangelical media — if you haven’t kept up with Polyamory in the News in the last four months (or signed up for the nice LJ friends feed or other syndication service), here’s some of what you’ve missed:
