No two people’s relationships are truly comparable. The same could be said for polyamory, “there are almost as many ways to practice polyamory as there are polyamorous people” (White, 2004). The "poly community becomes an extended family that [can involve] intimacy, sex, housing, finances, and child-rearing,” maintaining these crucial aspects of life can pose some struggles if not appreciated appropriately (Newitz, 2006). With good communication skills, a network can be just as healthy as traditional monogamy.

“A polygamous group located in San Francisco coined the term “compersion” to refer to [this] emotional response opposite to jealousy,” since there was not a word to describe this ability to feel joy for a partner when they experience pleasure with another lover (Ferrier, 2008). When discussing these forms of partnerships it becomes difficult. The English language is not equipped to explain such emotions or feelings of love, and that is why they need to be created. “Compersion can be felt as a tangible presence in the heart whose awakening may be accompanied by the waves of warmth, pleasure, and appreciation at the idea of your partner loving others and being loved by them in nonharmful and mutually beneficial ways” (Ferrier, 2008). It is also the understanding that being loved and loving is a precious thing. Being appreciative of someone else’s love can have its own reward internally. Because love is a genuine emotion, its overall effect betters the community when it is shared with others/ among others.

An American cultural idiom states, “Two is company, but three is a crowd.” While this expression is typically used to indicate an individual preference to exclude a third person from an interaction, it also illustrates a cultural preference for dyadic romantic relationships. A lack of social education leads to social stigmatization.
