Having only one love isn’t the way for some people. They are also in a romantic relationship with another one or perhaps more. When everyone involved is agreed, this is what is known as polyamory.
In cultures where monogamy, or the exclusive pairing of two, is the norm, it’s not easy to understand this complex type of bonding.
Also referred to as consensual nonmonogamy, polyamory works for lots of people. Toronto journalist Jenny Yuen is one of them. Yuen is also the author of Polyamorous: Living and Loving More, which was released by Dundurn Press this month.
Yuen will talk about polyamory and her new book on Monday (November 26) at the Vancouver Public Library central branch (350 West Georgia Street). The event is scheduled to take place at the Montalbano Family Theatre from 7 to 8:30 p.m.More
