My other partner Nat has a nesting partner and family but other than me, isn’t involved with anyone else. James (my nesting partner) and I have a woman-friend who we see on a regular basis and from time to time, we see other people. It’s not exactly symmetrical, but we’ve always done it this way, and it’s always worked for us.

The great joy of poly is that each partnership figures out what works for them and no inherent rules need apply.
