Should You Come Out to Your Kids if You Are Polyamorous?

“Ultimately, parents with kids old enough to understand, partners who are integrated into family life, and a low risk of losing their jobs or custody of their kids are fairly safe to come out. That is especially true for polyamorous folks who live in liberal areas with diverse populations. For those families who have small children, distant partners, and/or face significant risks if the children accidentally out them as polyamorous, coming out may be too high-risk with too little relevance to the kids’ daily lives, and thus a terrible idea.”
