Metamour Day was created to honor the relationships between you and your metamours, however that might look. It is not about forced compersion. It’s about communal appreciation within our family structures and modeling positivity to the world around us. Metamour Day is a recognition of the unique and special relationships between metamours.
l Día de Metamor es una forma de apreciar el papel especial de un Metamor, la pareja de tu pareja, y de reconocer el impacto benéfico y de apoyo de la no monogamia en nuestras vidas colectivas. Se trata de una apreciación comunitaria de nuestras estructuras familiares, en lugar de una compersión forzada (lo opuesto a los celos, es una reacción emocional positiva a la otra pareja de un ser querido).

Some noteworthy definitions pertaining to Metamour Day:
- Polyamory: the philosophy or state of being in love or romantically involved with more than one person at the same time with the knowledge of all involved.

- Compersion: A feeling of joy when a partner invests in and takes pleasure from another romantic or sexual relationship. Commentary: Compersion can be thought of as the opposite of “jealousy”; it is a positive emotional reaction to a lover’s other relationship. The term was coined by the Kerista Commune.
