This is just a list of rules criticized over here. I’m probably taking this list out of context of the real article as an example.
A list of rules I hear about when talking to other polyamorist people:
- I must meet your new partner
- I want Wednesday, Friday and Sunday nights to be mine…
Congratulations on your discovery, first of all! It takes a lot to realize and accept something so complex and controversial about yourself. A great place to start, for both you and your partner, would be http://www.morethantwo.com/ - this website addresses issues of jealousy pretty darn thoroughly.
Most importantly, keep talking to each other about this. Communication is the #1 most important thing in any relationship — poly, mono, whatever. Keep being honest with one another about your needs, your reactions, your feelings. Reassure each other. Take it as slowly as you need to. Best of luck, darling. :)
