Even if you have never read a page of Robert Heinlein’s work, you have probably heard of line families. Monastic orders are line families that have, in some cases, lasted for centuries. Many of the richest families on Earth use line family concepts to maintain stability, increase power and grow wealth. But what does the line family concept hold for polyamorous families?
We think that a line family will provide its members with financial security, emotional health and love and sharing.
Why would you expand a polyamorous family over multiple generations? How does a large group of intelligent and opinionated adults make decisions for the group? This and many other questions are discussed in our presentation.
Richard Gilmore is a long time polyamory activist, researcher and writer.
