Polyamory relationships are relationships where a person has several romantic and sexual partners. It differs from promiscuity in that all the lovers know about the existence of other partners. All the partners embrace polyamory as more satisfying than monogamy, which they view as oppressive or stifling.
People in this relationship experience satisfaction by seeing one of their partners being affectionate with another person. People in a polyamorous relationship take an introspective approach to jealousy instead of using it to confront the other person. They view jealousy as a weakness in their character that can be addressed through introspection and open communication.
