Polyamory is on the rise, and ABC’s comedy “Single Parents” is normalizing it with a loving throuple

This on-screen change reflects a shift in how Americans are approaching relationships. While a study estimated that 4 to 5 percent of people living in the U.S. are polyamorous, another study reveals that 20 percent have attempted ethical non-monogamy at least once. And the younger the person is, the more they are open to and accepting of non-monogamy. In a YouGov study, only 3 percent of Americans over 65 have had sexual contact outside of their relationship with the consent of their partner. That rises to 9 percent for Gen X, and 17 percent for Millennials. Overall, about 29 percent of adults under 30 consider open relationships to be morally acceptable.
