How would a poly family issue fit into the partners forum though? from what I've read so far from other poly families here at MDC, the majority don't have the kind of relationship where their 'secondary' partners are actively involved in raising their children, so they're not 'parents/partners' in that sense.... ?
Just a question since the partners thread is being brought up as a suitable place to discuss our relationships...
Oh, I did not mean to imply that this thread would be better suited for the Parents as Partners Forum, I was simply using that forum as an example of how discussing partner relationships (in general) is totally acceptable on MDC. Sorry for any confusion! That said, I do believe that there is a thread re: polyamory in the Parents as Partners forum right now (though I haven't read it so I don't know what it's about specifically). While the
Parents as Partners" forum was originally put up as a place to discuss partner issues as they relate to parenting, it has since evolved into a space where non-parenting partner issues are also discussed. I don't believe that this thread (or any thread re: poly families) would be out of place there, but I think the QP forum is also an appropriate discussion forum for Poly family issues, I suppose it really just depends on wherever the posters feel most comfortable posting.
