Polyamory (from Greek πολυ (poly, literally "multiple") & Latin amor (literally "love") is the desire, practice, or acceptance of having more than one loving, intimate relationship at a time with the full knowledge and consent of everyone involved. Polyamorous perspectives differ from monogamous perspectives, in that they respect a partner's wish to have second or further meaningful relationships and to accommodate these alongside their existing relationships.

Look at the root words... "poly" = multiple; "amor" = to love. Adding to that,... Polygamy is actually a variation OF polyamory. polyamory is the love of more than one person, or in the more current sense, having physical relations with more than one person, commited or not. Polygamy is having more than one spouse, or multiple marriages. While there are no laws against polyamory (barring any laws against homosexual acuivities if applicable) in most of the Western world, marrying more than one person is illegal.
Actually, swinger is the slang term for people who practice polyamory.
Polyamory (several males and females living as a unit) is simply another arrangement in human relations and family construction. The benefits are those of any marriage or common-law relationship.
Some people have made the decision in life to go against the Western tradition of only having a single romantic partner at a time. This is known as "Polyamory," and it works well for some people. The key to being happy in a polyamorous relationship is to be open and honest with the other people in that relationship, and make sure they approve of your polyamory. Lying will destroy any relationship, whether or not it is polyamorous.For more information, see: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Polyamory

They could, but they shouldn't. Polyamory is not approved of by most people, and love is and should be between only one human and one human. No one should ever cheat.
A Joining Ceremony is for those consenting adults who wish to pledge mutual support to one another but who are unable or unwilling to join in legal matrimony. There may be many reasons for this, including protection of pension rights, same sex unions, polyamory, S&M relationships, and non-concurrence with the state regulation of marriage.
