Abstract


Juliette will share her life-long struggle with monogamy and how she finally came to realize polyamory was not only right for her, but also was a viable life choice that’s easier for her than monogamy. Her path took her from meeting her second husband Roland in 1995, cheating on her first husband, divorcing and re-marrying, moving to Spain in 2003 and then meeting Laurel, the biological mother of their daughter Maya, now 6. In 2010 the family moved to the Netherlands where they now reside with a family friend, Barry. Juliette will touch on logistics (who sleeps where), legal issues, and societal and family reactions.

This could also be a longer presentation with Q & A if desired.
