This actually probably isn't going to be what anyone else expects.
Instead of being part of a regular coven, I found a group on meetup.com, about 2 years ago, that is a misc. assortment of witches and pagans, and frequently do ritual with them. Prior to this, I'd been a solitary for roughly 13 years.
Several of the other members are also into polyamory. Cool, whatever works for them, not my thing. Two of them are Gardenarian, and also the group mods (and a married couple, but that's not really relevent). They seem to have taken a STRONG interest in me, especially the man, and he is consistently pushing me towards to poly-thing. Most recently, telling me that I need to "get over" being monogamous in my marriage. He has also apparently made comments to other members basically saying that being monogamous and being a witch don't mix.
Now, I know how I feel about this. Its actually becoming a big enough deal that I'm considering leaving the group. There is a small coven that comes to meetings too, that I'm somewhat interested in joining, and I have several other friends within the group that I can keep in touch with on my own. I don't feel like I need to continue to deal with unwanted pressure and back-stabbing criticism. Up until now, and the last few comments, I was able to brush it off. I don't dislike him as a person, but this crosses the line for me.
What I would like to know, is this a common belief in Gardenarians? I've run across witches that were poly before, but none so hostile about being (nicely) turned down.
