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:
