** In "The Husbands of River Song" it's revealed that River Song became married to at least two other individuals (albeit one for the sake of a mission) while still considering herself to be married to the Doctor.
** The Doctor unambigiously falls in love with Clara Oswald over the course of her time on the show, leading to an ActOfTrueLove scenario covering ''billions'' of years leading to an AnchoredShip at the end of Series 9. In the very next episode (the aforementioned "Husbands of River Song"), we learn this all happened while he was still married to (and, it is strongly indicated still in love with) River Song.

Doctor. The Doctor does not appear to be disturbed by this at all.

In the very next episode (the aforementioned "Husbands of River Song"), we learn this all happened while he was still married to (and, it is strongly indicated still in love with) River Song. Due to the Doctor having undergone a self-inflicted [[spoiler: MindRape that caused him to lose the memory of being in love with Clara, however]], it is unclear whether River is ever made aware of his relationship for Clara.


Added DiffLines:

** The ability to be polyamorous is considered a defining character trait of Series 1 companion Captain Jack Harkness, who is shown as equally attracted to Rose Tyler and the Ninth Doctor. Although the series never follows this very far, when it is referenced neither Rose nor the Doctor appear too disturbed by it.

"Mr. Greg" states that she'd had several lovers over the course of history and Pearl didn't mind until Greg came along and got into a deeper relationship with her, and the same episode confirms that she loved them both and saw no reason to choose.

* In Creator/GilbertAndSullivan's ''Theatre/TrialByJury'', someone proposes that the defendant (in a Breach of Promise to Marry suit) "marry this lady today, and marry the other tomorrow". That's considered a satisfactory solution until one of the attorneys points out to the judge that such an arrangement would be illegal.
