Polyamorous individuals don’t need to be married – and while polyamorous people may have a primary partner – a relationship they have committed to as their most serious one – relationships aren’t always centered on bringing someone else ‘into’ a main relationship, as may be standard of a polygamous marriage.Being polyamorous myself, I am constantly fascinated with the way poly relationships are perceived in the modern world.
In a world where tradition appears immovable yet is gone like a leaf in the wind, does the Bible actually provide the counsel of God?
Morality was largely determined by what God’s Word taught.
Marriage and sex were both sacred to the culture because God’s Word views them as sacred.
I believe the answer is yes, and want to illustrate timeless biblical wisdom by examining the microcosm of a single but deeply telling issue: polyamory.
Polyamory combines two Latin words—poly, meaning “many,” and amor, meaning “love.” This term describes open relationships which may or may not define themselves as a sort of group marriage, or as a single couple who remain together but pursue other sexual partners.
