“I love you but you need to take yo’ ass home”—Boundary Formation, Maintenance, and Severance in Polyamorous Relationships

In some poly relationships, individuals believe that they should invest more time in relational building and maintenance that they have difficulty negotiating and navigating appropriate boundaries to forming attachments with partner(s). In these relationships, their partner(s) may want time or space in order to take care of themselves differently than they would if their partner was around. Thus, it seems advantageous that sexuality clinicians and educators consider the concepts of co- dependence/enmeshment and differentiation while working with individuals from poly communities in order to clearly define and describe guidelines for courtship, relational maintenance, and intimacy negotiation.
