Polyamory (from Greek πολύ poly, "many, several", and Latin amor, "love") is typically the practice of, or desire for, intimate relationships where individuals may have more than one partner, with the knowledge and consent of all partners.[1] [2]It has been described as "consensual, ethical, and responsible non-monogamy".[3][4][5] However, the meaning of polyamory is also an issue of ongoing debate.[4] For example, although polyamory is typically defined as a relationship practice or approach to relationships,[1][2][6] some believe that it should also be considered an orientation or identity (analogous to sexual orientation or gender identity).[7][8] Polyamory is sometimes used in a broader sense, as an umbrella term that covers various forms of consensual multi-partner relationships, or forms of consensual non-exclusive sexual and/or romantic relationships.
