One of my friends who has a good wife at home was recently involved in an affair with a cyber friend, however it ends quite nasty. The wife wouldn’t accept another woman, on the other hand, the cyber friend refused to be a lover. At the end, the friend confessed to both women and admitted that he still loved them.So both women knew about each other and were extremely jealous. He came to me for a solution. I said,the only way out is a polygamous setup. Polyamory is a time-tested relationship structure, especially for jealous people. My friend said: maybe you could think through that polyamorous relationship in theory, but it’s not going to work in real life. I said: who says it’s only theoretical? It’s becoming a new way of having relationships, many people have already eagerly chosen this setup: one man, two women; one woman, two men; two men, two women; any combination that makes you all happy. Who said it’s not real?

尽管多人关系可以这样解决,这种事发生在身边,还是令我唏嘘慨叹。Love is the most beautiful thing in the world, but it is a double-edged sword, it brings people happiness, and it gives them trouble.

当人陷入激情之爱,天为之蓝,花为之红,幸福和幸运的感觉油然而生,像鸟儿高飞,像鱼儿畅游,谁能说爱情不美好呢?可是,当爱情遇上现实,或者你有婚姻,或者他有恋人,或者你爱他他不爱你,或者他爱你你不爱他,即使双方都爱,也远隔关山,无缘相会。无穷烦恼挥之不去。成天阴云密布,以泪洗面。谁又能摆脱爱情的烦恼呢?

We can only pray to God, let lovers marry, and the flower of love bloom, undefeated.

However, when we encounter actual love, or you get married, or he has a lover, or you love him but he does not love you, or he loves you but you do not love him, although both parties are in love, they are separated by distant moment, with no chance to meet. It is impossible to rid oneself of the inexhaustible distress. Dark clouds cover the sky all day and the face is awash with tears. Who is able to break free of love's distress?</p>
