This article focuses on the issue of polyamorous relationships among gay men. As the issue of polygamy came back into the conversation, polyamorous relationships among gay people have also become the subject of much debate. Michael Bertolucci, a marriage and family psychotherapist, says these relationships definitely come with their own sets of positives and negatives. It is ripe for triangulation where one person feels left out or ganged up on and where alliances can form. But it can be a very good thing. It expands the possibilities and the richness, and it creates more intimacy and growth if they can learn how to share in the context of a relationship.
