Midwest Mono-Poly


New member
Hello, everyone. My wife and I live in the Midwest and are currently navigating our own path. I (50M) am mono and my wife (F42) is poly. We have been married for over two decades and have been happy most of the time. We are currently educating ourselves, seeking therapy so that as we move forward, our relationship remains strong. I've been lurking here and at some point would like to get some perspectives from others who are more experienced. Thanks!
Welcome to polyamory.com! Let me know if you need any book or podcast recs.
Greetings Monopoly1,
Welcome to our forum. Please feel free to lurk, browse, etc.

I take it poly is relatively new for you, although your wife may have known she was poly for some time, and just didn't know there was a word for it. Poly Relationships Corner is a good place to post when you are ready for those perspectives from others. Let us know if you have any questions!
