Well, they all start out on the same page and have a shared value of this communal living style. That's a huge difference between monogamous exes and having to navigate new partners and kids. Polygamous and polyamorous people also start out totally above board and in agreement that shared love is preferred over monogamous coupling - also a big difference from monogamous agreements that are shattered, especially when you add in alcoholism. Yes, there are certainly challenges even in healthy polygamy and polyamory, but everyone is in agreement about the set-up from the outset, based on shared values. A cheating or even ex alcoholic partner situation is on a totally different emotional planet.
