does love have a limit?

Can a man be in love with two women at the same time?

Ben's Answer:
I'm sure the readers of this forum will have lots of opinions about this question. But I believe it is possible for a man to be in love with two women at the same time. The problem is, unless all parties involved are completely aware, honest and comfortable with this situation, somebody is likely to get hurt eventually. And even though I believe it is possible to love more than one person at the same time, polyamory can get very complicated and can easily lead to jealousy, insecurity and all kinds of emotional upheaval.

This can also be a situation in which the man is unwilling to commit completely to one person, and likes the excitement of having another partner, but can't allow the women the same freedom that he is enjoying. Be careful of this and make sure you know what you want.
