45 - Poly & Family with Dr. Elisabeth Sheff

This week we are joined by Dr. Elisabeth Sheff, author of The Polyamorists Next Door and editor of the newly released Stories from the Polycule.  Sheff's books have been widely read in poly circles, and we had a great time picking her brain! 

Eli explains her process of choosing and editing together this beautiful compilation of personal stories from poly families, and she also gives a TON of great advice in this episode, including:

  • Coming out to your family during the holidays
  • How non-monogamous parents can protect themselves and their children from facing custody battles
  • Her #1 piece of advice for people currently within a monogamous relationship considering trying polyamory

Other talking points of this episode:

  • How many times an intelligent woman should marry
