In this talk, Nirel highlights a number of convincing reasons why polyamory should be a more widely considered option – this includes its emphasis on transparent communication, compersion, diffusion of economic (and other) responsibilities, and importance of autonomy. From this, Nirel will argue that we need to change our definition of ‘relationship’ to include polyamory and other forms of consensual non-monogamy.
Nirel Marofsky is a student at the University of British Columbia, in the Cognitive Systems program.
