New Polyamory and Marriage Survey
One of the most common questions by the media (and misconceptions by general society) about polyamory is the attitude towards marriage that polyamorists hold. You see it in the comment sections of virtually every article or TV segment on polyamory: “If you just want to screw around than why even get married?”
Well how do polyamorists feel about marriage? There are probably as many similarities and differences of feelings and opinions as their are people. So in an effort to sufficiently answer this question for the masses the first ever “Polyamory and Marriage Survey” is being conducted (in conjunction with Robyn Trask and Loving More) by Curt Berstrand, Ph.D., associate professor of sociology at Bellarmine University in Louisville, KY and coauthor of “Swinging In America: Sex, Love, and Marriage in the 21st Century” and Jim Fleckenstein, B.A., who is a longtime polyamory activist and researcher. He co-founded the Chesapeake Polyamory Network and the Institute for 21st Century Relationships (now the NCSF Foundation) and recently co-edited “What Psychology Professionals Should Know About Polyamory”.
The survey is short – it will take you less than five minutes to complete – and can give us and the world some information that may help others understand those that seek ethical non-monogamy as a life and relationship choice.
