Polyamory for the Practical
Group Marriage Rejection Letter
This was a post to alt.polyamory by Elynne on 1/28/2001. I am sure that many of you who have poly familys or pages about poly familys get this thing from time to time. I hope you find it as funny as I did.
Disclaimer thing: this is meant to be humourous, and is not aimed at anybody, in particular or in general. It does have a basis in a couple of odd experiences I've had when folks realize that we're a poly household, and owes its format to having spent the last couple of years writing basically business letters in e-mail.
Dear (insert name here),
