20 - Metamours: Your Partner's Partners

The partners of your partner, the lovers of your lover, the boyfriend of your girlfriend. The other partner that your partner chooses is known as your "metamour". You didn't get to pick him or her, but keeping up a healthy connection with your metamours is crucial for maintaining harmony and happiness in your poly constellation. In this episode, we explore the dos and don'ts of interacting with metamours, what information should be communicated between your partners, as well as what kind of rights your secondary partners might be entitled to.  

We also discuss the importance of exposure to different ideas and belief systems, including those that do not accept polyamory.  

If you're interested in reading Dewayne Lehman's chapter on metamours, you can find it on his website: www.DewayneLehman.com.
