In the literature section they should add a book called Kharmic Rebound by Aaron Lee Yeager because it fits this theme. If that's what the literature section is for, I'm kinda new so I'm not sure.

Sure, but you'll have to explain how the work is an example.

So the difference between this and Polyamory is that this is usually an ending trope, and polyamory is when it factors into the on going plot? Neither page description is very clear on how these tropes should be differentiated.

This trope is the resolution of a Love Dodecahedron or similar.

That doesn't answer my question to how those two tropes are differentiated.

Well, yes, polyamory is the act of loving many people, Marry Them All is about resolving a harem conflict by courting them all.

If I understand it right, Polyamory is a more general trope, of which Marry Them All is a subtrope that concerns itself with situations in which there is actual conflict between multiple people vying for the affections of at least one common Love Interest. In other words, Polyamory includes but does not require romantic conflict between two or more people over the same person, while Marry Them All requires it as a precondition that it serves as a solution for. Is that right?
