What a sick bastard…who’d want two mothers-in-law…
Stil if you believe Colin Craig, Bob McCoskrie¬†and others this is where we are heading as we slide down the slippery slope to moral decay…oh and don;t forget crime will rise too.
Darren Ramsey is a consultant, life coach and relationship coach whose methods include talk therapy and neuro-linguistic programming. He also occasionally does therapeutic hypnotism, or “installing learnings into the mind”, as he characterises it, speaking in his upbeat, can-do style. His tiled, Italianate home in Devon Park, in Adelaide’s inner north, has a well-kept garden (it’s that kind of suburb), a concrete driveway and a couple of dogs out the back. Inside, the walls are decorated with inspirational sayings like, “Do ALL you can/With WHAT you’ve got/From WHERE you can.”
This epigram, and its implication of abundance, sums him up well. Because Ramsey, a 50-year-old divorced father of two whose interests include scuba diving and wine appreciation, is a polyamorist. Which means he has multiple concurrent relationships with different partners, who all know about each other, and some of whom may be involved with each other, too.¬†
Ramsey is part of what’s known, in the “poly” world, as a triad. He has two female partners, 28-year-old Jennifer Lee and 35-year-old Melissa “Melly” Coller, who are also lovers. They sometimes have sex as a threesome. “There are three separate connections, so each has its own dynamic and own little cocoon,” Ramsey explains. “It’s just that it’s more open when we’re interrelating.”
I reckon though if someone wants two or more mothers-in-law then they are welcome to it…we should allow it, it will save some other poor bastard from ever having to have a mother in law.
Here is a 2007 documentary on polyamory:
