Can you love more than one person? Can you have multiple romantic partners without jealousy or cheating? Absolutely! Polyamorous people have been paving the way through trial and painful error. Now the new book More Than Two can help you find your own way. With completely new material and a fresh approach, Franklin Veaux and Eve Rickert wrote More Than Two to expand on and update the themes and ideas in the wildly popular polyamory website morethantwo.com. From ancient Greece through the many dynasties of China and to current practices of nonmonogamy, people have openly engaged in multiple intimate relationships. Not until the late 20th century, however, was a word coined that encapsulated the practice, philosophies, edicts, and ethics: polyamory (poly = many + amore = love). For Franklin Veaux, who has been polyamorous for his entire adult life, the emerging framework and subsequent vocabulary for his lifestyle was a light in the dark. Candidly sharing his experiences and thoughts online catapulted his website, morethantwo.com, among the first dedicated to the poly lifestyle, to one of the top-ranking on the subject. In recent years, as more people have discovered polyamory as a legitimate and desirable option for how they conduct their relationships, Franklin and one of his partners, Eve Rickert, saw that there was a growing need for a comprehensive guide to the lifestyle. More Than Two is that guide. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Craig Beck. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/acx0/035010/bk_acx0_035010_sample.mp3. Digital audiobook in aax.

Among consenting adults, family should be a matter of choice and the configuration thereof should be the choice of the family members. There are between 50,000 and 100,000 families in the U.S. living in polygamy today. Recently, these numbers began to climb rapidly as certain Christian, Islamic, and secular groups seek ways to live according to their convictions, in spite of federal and state laws. The growth is accelerating at a surprising rate. Yet, there are few resources and little information to help those seeking happiness in this way of life. This book is a primer for those wishing to seek fulfillment outside the confines of monogamy. As people search for and find their own happiness, the population practicing polygamy will soon grow large enough to have a voice loud enough to change the laws of the land from within. Polygamy may be the next movement in the search for individual freedom and happiness. Polygamy: The act of having more than one spouse. A husband having more than one wife or wife having more than one husband is called polygamy. Polygamy is a general term and exists in three specific forms: polygyny, polyandry, and polyamory.

Polyamory (from the Greek "poly", meaning “many, much, more” and the Latin "amor", meaning "love") the desire for intimate relationships with more than one partner, with the knowledge of all partners.Many of us wander through relationships with no idea of what we truly want. We judge our relationships based on what we were told love is supposed to look like, never exploring our own ideas of happiness. When we end up unfulfilled, we move on to the next, always wanting to believe "this time is it...this time is different." Why?Why must we discount old loves in order to give credit to the new? How do you measure one over the other? What if there was another way?What happens when we open ourselves to the idea that love does not need a sole proprietor and that our hearts do not have to be bound by standards that tell us who and how to love? What happens if we were to live and love outside the box? This is the story of a few daring individuals who will choose to test the boundaries of that love and explore its possibilities. Prepare yourself...because this is not your average romance novel. This is a polyamorous love story that breaks all the rules. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Jason Hong.
