    I didn't expect him to I hoped he would make a choice that reflected a concern for the health of our marriage. It is one thing to say you want it to work and your spouse means more to you than anything... It is another thing to mean it. He went outside our marriage, he got a gf and hid it...

    What he does from here could make or break it... I guess when I ended it with H.R. because "I wanted my marriage to work" (that was the reason I gave him)... I hoped hubs would do the same with his gf... I didn't want to pressure him or force the choice on him in any way. I wanted it to be his...

    ... and life just gets better... Look, I am sorry so many of you are hell bent on beating divorce into my head. I did not make the decision to be his wife lightly nor will I make the decision to leave him that way. I have an ex husband already, an abusive alcoholic who in recent years would...

    Thank you, everyone who took the time to respond. I have since broke it of with the other guy. As for my marriage, just going to keep trying to figure out if we can work. In many ways we are still extremely functional. We hide all the dramma from the kids. Hubs is spending markedly less time on...

    I am sorry for coming here and falling apart on your forum. I probably should just bite the bullet and go to the shrink. I thought that this would get easier with time... but as the days and weeks go on it just hurts more as I start to realize the gravity of what was lost with his decision to...

    Why and how did you get into poly?

    When did you know you were Poly? I am curious to know when people realized they were poly? I guess I am still figuring out where I fall into this spectrum.

    Hubs gf's husband...

    You bring up a lot of great points. I def have my concerns about that and I have voiced them to a degree... He will on occasion come to me about one of her gripes about him and paint it in the form of a "What would you do if I did this?" sort of thing. I will say that my responses tend to...

    Experimenting with an Openish Relationship

    kdt - Thanks for the info on jealousy. At this point everything is still fresh enough that it is evolving every day as we learn where our boundaries are at this point. Just one hurdle over another. The biggest issue I see down the road is, I see the online dating as a stepping stone to...

    Hubs gf's husband...

    Yeah... I have told him that I can't really approve of what they are doing until the situation has changed. I will say that when I first found out about their thing there was a lot I didn't know... and my hubs is just vague enough that there is so much room for confusion and misunderstanding...
