Polyamory is the philosophy of having people involved romantically or sexually with more than one person at a time, or “many loves,” whereas polygamy is the practice of having more than one marriage partner. Either way, it sounds pretty awesome. In our progressive world of free love Instagrammers and online dating faux pas, a world where most people can’t hold the same job for more than four years, it makes sense that people would explore love outside a long, monogamous relationship, even if it’s just with their TV.

Some of the biggest television shows to involve this open philosophy right now, like Game of Thrones and Shameless, will throw everything you know about love, marriage and general relationships right out the door. Is it the coolest thing you’ve ever heard of? Quite possibly. But it comes with a price. These popular polyamory-practicing TV shows give you the honest ups and downs of having more than one partner in your life, and potentially a busload of kids, too.

Follow along as we unravel the colliding worlds of monogamous, traditional marriage with the extramarital affairs of lust, betrayal and new age thinking. Or you can just enjoy how conveniently these lucky guys get an abundance of sexy girls on a daily basis, unless of course, it’s the devil’s threesome, of which no straight man should be jealous.
