Three or more people committed to each other in a relationship?

Polyamory is changing views on relationships and gaining traction among liberal people, despite the stigma of society against it.

702/Cape Talk's Friday Stand-In, Rebacca Davis, spoke to Lindiwe regarding how people can navigate this territory.

Listen to the conversation below:

Polyamory falls under an umbrella term of ethical non-monogamy...People engage in polyamorous relationships in many ways.

Lindiwe, guest (full name and designation withheld)

An ethical non-monogamy situation could be where one partner says I'm happy for you to be with another person but don't tell me about it.

Lindiwe, guest (full name and designation withheld)

You could also have an ethical non-monogamous relationship where you have three or more people committed long-term to one another in the entire constellation

Lindiwe, guest (full name and designation withheld)

It's up to every person to decide what their sexuality look like, but there's still a lot of stigma around it.

Lindiwe, guest (full name and designation withheld)

The social worldview is that we own our partners and their time, polyamory squashes that view.

Lindiwe, guest (full name and designation withheld)

People aren't property. In our society, we give in to jealousy and that's why we're monogamous.
