I think I want to marry my partner, but only if I can still have the possibility of other intimate relationships. Is this a healthy desire for a polyamorous approach to relationships, or is it a sign something's wrong in the primary relationship that might come back to haunt us if we go forward this way?

Is there a medical or technical reason an ultrasound facility would specify that only one person can accompany the pregnant person during the ultrasound? (And if it turns out we must follow this policy, how could the third parent observe the ultrasound from the waiting room?) [more inside]
