Jennifer C. Martin (30), Daniel Martin (31) вЂ” Richmond, VA
Married for ten years with 2 kiddies, Daniel and Jennifer C. Martin came across summer time after senior high school graduation and got engaged the following year. Raised in conservative, evangelical Christian households in Tennessee that put reasonably limited regarding the notion of purity, they started their relationship being a “normal,” monogamous few. But, the 2 made a decision to result in the change to polyamory 3 years ago after Jennifer started initially to recognize she had been trouble that is”having abstaining from flirting or experiencing interested in other folks and made a decision to stop experiencing pity about any of it.
Even though adopting polyamory had been a choice which also forced them to go out of the evangelical church they was raised in, their faith stays steadfast. Having refused whatever they felt become restricting, literalist interpretations of Jesus’ teachings, the Martins argue that the different types of wedding depicted into the Bible are ill-equipped to tackle the way in which society that is contemporary organized.
