Nonmonogamy: Using your meta as a couples' therapist...
January 7, 2021
Today, I’d like to address something that seems to happen A LOT in non monogamous relationships, especially in kitchen table poly, triads or families, where the metas interact as friends or more. And it’s no bueno.
I cannot see a more than .06% chance of success when an intimate partner becomes the counselor to an existing couple. The chances for misunderstandings between three people are exponentially larger than for two. the possibility of favoritism (real or perceived) is in the 98-99% range, in my experience.
ONE of the couple is going to feel like you are not on their side.
