As we have already defined in previous posts in this blog, when it comes to polyamory relations (whatever the type of polyamory might be), love and emotions have no normative set definition. The beauty of poly relationships resides in the fact that love, sex and emotions are lived limitless and are embraced in unrestricted ways. In poly relations, a concept that must be talked about, discussed and constantly referred to, is the concept of “boundaries”. Especially, in the context of the partnerships or metamours involved in the poly relationships. How do we defined boundaries in poly relationships?

Setting up boundaries or limits in poly relationships can be challenging and not so simple process, but achieving consensus and mutual agreement around them, is key for a successful, enjoyable and uncomplicated poly relationship. Why are those boundaries essential in polyamorous relationships? Like in other ambits of life, the more people are involved in something, the more difficult it can get (and really quickly), to agree and work harmoniously around something.
