1. it is possible to romantically love more than one person.
2. romantic love is the expressive and pleasurable feeling towards another person
3. Polyamory accepts the belief in loving more than one person.

Controversial premises:
Premise 3. is controversial because we did not state if we are talking about polyamory beliefs or not.
Premise 1. It is possible to romantically love more than one person. Although it may not be morally right it is possible. For example A widower may still have feeling for her deceased husband but she may have feelings for a new interest as well.

Non Controversial Premises:
Premise 2. Its the definition of love.
