Under Real Life, one example reads:

Tilda Swinton has a happy relationship with two male partners, both of them painters. "Itís the way we have been for nearly four years. Iím very fortunate. It takes some extraordinary men to make a situation like that work."

However, the article which this entry links to in fact states that she is in a relationship with only one of them, and explicitly states that she is not in a relationship with the other. Is this evidence for removal?

Sorry to say, but we need an image for this trope.

The hard part will be finding one that is not too far down the ends of the Sliding Scale of Idealism Versus Cynicism...

Removed this:

Polyamory as such is equal for men and women, and should thus not be confused with the Double Standard social institution Polygyny (to which the term polygamy usually refers in commonplace parlance). Poly is Greek for "many". Amor is Latin for love  * . Gyny means woman or wife. A polyamorous subculture (or culture) lets people have several intimate partners, regardless of gender or sexual orientation. Real world polygynous cultures  * are not polyandrous as well. That is, they let one man have several wives, while a woman is not allowed to have more than one man. Furthermore, openly homosexual participants aren't allowed either, hence all wives are forced to share  * the one husband.

because it looks like it's trying to tell me how I should feel about poly.
