The Lindsey-Vanessa-Anthony triad is rocked by Lindsey's admission that she has totally fallen for an outside guy, Krystoff, which she tells the others awfully late in the game. The triad has rules, and while I didn't hear anyone say "No surprises," that seems to be the biggest one she broke. Vanessa, in particular, is hurt and jealous about Lindsey almost ignoring her they are in a bi relationship while skyping and texting to Krystoff "constantly" in giggly NRE.

They did, after all, set up a rule giving each other veto power.
Watch, people, this is how it's done. Oh, and it was followed by bonobo sex. But we wonder, will Lindsey follow through? Where is this going to lead? Meanwhile, We see Kamala and Michael making their big will-you-move-in-and-live-with-us? Kamala has predicted, correctly, that Tahl will be gung-ho and the questionable one will be Jen.
Tahl has been telling Jen about wanting to live in community ever since they married, years ago; Jen has only recently come around to an interest in the idea. An emergency physician, Amoroso has a live-in girlfriend, Katherine, who has a live-in husband, Matt. Amoroso also has another girlfriend.

They are one another's health care proxies. Matt and Katherine are trying to have a baby, and Amoroso is looking forward to co-parenting. Amoroso served on the board of the Alternatives to Marriage Project, and he speaks at conventions about his living arrangement.
Why do some people want multiple life partners when most of us can barely deal with one? Both fundamentalist Mormons and polyamorists argue that having several partners requires people to be more loving and generous and to learn to overcome jealousy. There's a term polyamorists use for enjoying their lover's happiness with another: The word is thought by some to have originated in the '80s at a San Francisco commune by people using a Ouija board.
Fundamentalist Mormons believe the practice mirrors the selfless interconnectedness that will exist in heaven. They call it "living the principle. In the premiere episode, the duo is reconnecting with their primary girlfriend of the past two years, Vanessa, who desperately wants a formalized commitment from her polyamorous triad.
Further down the coast in San Diego, Kamala Devi and Michael have been married for 10 years and are the proud parents of a four-year-old son. Devoted to expanding their family, they are inviting two of their lovers, married couple Jen and Tahl, to move in with them.

The show's director-producer, Natalia Garcia, thinks so too. A poly mom's observations on Episode 6 compared to her own coming out: Kamala, I know you have a really good heart but you came off mean when not reckoning Jen's concerns.
