    I don't know about romantically. But from my own experience, it is definitely possible to have concurrent feelings of the loving sort for more than one person in the instance of sexual love.

    This sounds interesting, Víðálfr ...

    I experienced that myself, many times. And astrology really helps with sorting out things like that. I mean, for example, I had a feeling someone was like a brother to me, and after years I found out that according to some astrological data from our natal charts we actually could have been like brother and sister in a previous life. And things like that were confirmed with many other encounters I had in this lifetime. Family relationships, or couple relationships, or other relationships from previous lives... I had that feeling, and when I checked the astrological data it was confirmed.
    ... could you possibly elaborate on this in the Astrology thread?

    No, I don't think it's possible because (romantic) love is total, unique and exclusive.

    Polygamy (if treated as a privilege rather than a liberal policy) can encourage competition among wives.

    The "total, unique and exclusive" love is absurd. Why should someone pine away their years and health over one person's unrequited affection? Monogamy practically enables scandals, monasteries are the curse of Germany. Only a handful of men can really confine themselves to one woman or abstinence from marriage. It's better to marry an idea or a cause than to burn with passion for a woman. It's truly a maddening instinct. Who in their right mind would base their whole happiness on one person? His sense of proportion must have really evaporated.

    If you'd say marriage is total, unique and exclusive, that's a yes. But love, no. It is possible to (romanticly) love more than one person.

    You're correct; I should've specified that I meant conjugal love.

    If you do have feelings for two people, you often have stronger feelings for one more than the other; on that premise, no I don't think you can be truly in love with more than one person.

    I think it's thinkably possible, not all polygamous societies do so for merely economic or pragmatic reasons, either. So, hypothetically, it is possible to love more than one person at the same time, regardless of sexual orientation.

    It's just nothing for me. The idea that I could feel the same, or almost the same, for any second person beyond the person I love, is beyond me. I have a very wholesome and exclusive view of romantic love, so for me that type of thing would be a telltale sign that it "wasn't real love" in my personal circumstance. I'm just more of the "Nibelungentreue" sort of guy.
    -In kalte Schatten versunken... /Germaniens Volk erstarrt / Gefroren von Lügen / In denen die Welt verharrt-
    -Die alte Seele trauernd und verlassen / Verblassend in einer erklärbaren Welt / Schwebend in einem Dunst der Wehmut / Ein Schrei der nur unmerklich gellt-
    -Auch ich verspüre Demut / Vor dem alten Geiste der Ahnen / Wird es mir vergönnt sein / Gen Walhalla aufzufahren?-

    (Heimdalls Wacht, In kalte Schatten versunken, stanzas 4-6)
