More Than Two is the home of Franklin Veaux’s pages about polyamory and ethical non-monogamy. It’s the oldest continuously-updated site on polyamory on the Web, first created as a section of the Xero Magazine site in 1997. Throughout the years, it’s been a resource and education site for anyone interested in polyamory. If you’re new to this site, a good place to start is the Polyamory FAQ.
