If you’re worried about how a non-monogamous lifestyle could impact your job (and it might) be aware that in most states employees are at-will, meaning an employee may be fired for any reason or no reason. ● The same author wrote a brief piece on the same topic for Avvo Stories last February 16: Millennials may just have a thing for polyamory.“Being polyamorous is not a protected class, so an employer could fire someone for being polyamorous,” says Robert S. ● And almost a year ago, The legal ramifications of polyamory (May 16, 2016).Both women were labeled caricatures, members of a confused, experimental generation that needs to mature so they embrace the one true relationship approach — monogamy. The truth is that many millennials, whether a factor of generational change or youthful exploration, are open to the unexpected. Gillespie floats another idea: “They say millennials are very tribal.
The last thing I wanted was to date and start the whole dysfunctional cycle again,” says Lucy Gillespie, creator, writer, and producer of Unicornland, a fictional web series about a woman who unconsciously practices “unicorning” by dating polyamorous couples to explore her own sexuality.

And I think people outside the polyamorous community may not understand that the two aren’t necessarily the same thing,” says Turner.
And a recent Avvo study on relationships found that modern marriages are more romantic than practical. These millennials aren’t too concerned about being judged for a polyamorous lifestyle either.
“I’m out as polyamorous although, in my day-to-day life, I tend to take an approach of being honest when asked directly about it but not advertising or disclosing electively,” says Turner.
