Polyamory married and dating episode 4 review
Based in Portland, Oregon, where I have personally known many queer-identified couples who had open relationships or were part of a polyamorous situation, married couple Jack (Greg Poehler) and Emma (Rachel Blanchard) are complacent in their day-to-day.
But that many couples underestimate the harm they can inflict on each other when they underestimate the hurt feelings that come with jealousy. ;^) Most [mono] therapists fail to allow for the fact that some people don’t experience jealousy at all, and that for those that do, it’s quite possible to learn how to use the data provided by the jealous feelings, without harming each other at all.This show lays it out as carefully as possible in its profiling of two multi-person committed relationships.It works not just as the freak show that we've come to expect from reality TV, but also on a political level. It is something that you cannot seem to turn away from. Even if at the same time you find the whole set up a bit out of your comfort zone. Often a viewer is left wondering if people really talk like this.Unless you’ve been overseas or under a rock, you’ve probably heard of the Showtime series that’s been running this summer about polyamory. For those of you also in this position, I’ve been told that it’s possible to view online, but I don’t know if that’s legal, so I won’t make any recommendations. 😉 For those who just want to check the reactions of the poly community to this sensation, Jessica Karels of Modern Poly has done some really good reviews of the series. Drew, and some interesting commentary about that showed up in the Poly Weekly podcast. Of course, whether polyamory and adultery are the same thing certainly depends on your point of view, and it probably goes without saying (but I’ll say it anyway) that I don’t share that point of view.
