This is the story of Mary Crumpton. She is a woman who began to explore her sexuality at the very mature age of 29. Later, she discovered that she was attracted mainly to the idea of polyamorous relationships: being in relationships with more than one partner. Polygamy is actually something that has existed in human civilization. It is likely that many people are very familiar with the idea of polygamy at this time. However, polyamory is not so well known. In fact, until the 1990s it showed no sign of life in pop culture. Polyamory is defined as the desire to have intimate relationships with more than one person. However, it’s not the same as cheating on your partner. People in polyamorous relationships are always going to be honest about who they are, what they like and how they want their relationships to be carried out. They never hide their intentions and always clarify their preferences. If you are not convinced that this type of relationship arrangement can really exist in this contemporary society, then you must continue to read. Mary Crumpton’s story will make you eat your own words. Mary is a normal girl who is married to only one man. But she’s also married to another man. And she has two other boyfriends too. She says that she only began to explore her sexuality when she was 29 and that mature age allowed her to have a more open mind about what relationships should really be like. She said, ” I was raised in a rather traditional home. He had boyfriends and he was monogamous. Having more than one partner never crossed my mind. “In my twenties, I married and settled in Chorlton with the intention of being with my husband for life.” This happens a lot with people who are forbidden to break the boundaries caused by monogamous structures at earlier ages. Mary also says of her situation: “at that time, she didn’t really question having a single partner. It was normal “. Society has a way of dictating “norms” in a way that is combative and daring of those who do not necessarily subscribe to the same type of philosophy. Anyone who breaks traditional rules always runs the risk of being marginalized and ridiculed. Crumpton also confesses: “sometimes I had feelings for other people, but I felt guilty about doing so and I just took it as a sign that I didn’t love my husband enough. When the marriage didn’t work out, I met someone else and started a monogamous relationship with him. “ So how exactly did you go from that situation to one of polyamory? It is often a very lonely and difficult position to be when you come across an unusual approach to something as serious as love and relationships. But Mary didn’t let it stop her from reaching an agreement on how she really felt. ” The idea that loving more than one person might not turn me into a terrible human being only occurred to me when, in a pub, I ran into a person who had more than one partner, ” Crumpton said. “I’ve never seen it before, or the term” polyamor” meaning “love more than one.” I was quite surprised and curious about how everything worked for them. “ When he met this new person, he was already with his partner at the time. And to his relief, he was also curious about the practice of polyamor. But Crumpton and his partner decided not to break the limits of their monogamous relationship for the time being. It was only a couple of years after Crumpton really approached the idea with his colleagues. She told him she wanted to prove an open relationship with others. He also agreed with that and actually both found additional partners for themselves. And that’s when Crumpton’s eyes were released. I was in a very exciting new position and I couldn’t have enough. She said, ” I took it right away. I had a friend I was already close to and that friendship became more natural. My partner had a similar experience with a friend of his. It was a revelation to me. I quickly realized that I had been “connected” this way, probably all my life; loving more than one person now seems to me to be the most natural thing in the world and I can’t imagine being otherwise. “ Now, she’s no longer with the person the polyamor had first explored with. She is currently married to Tim and also has a boyfriend. Besides this, she’s also in a relationship with two other men.
