hi all
My wife and I have been married for ten years, together for 13. Opened things up maybe 3 years ago. It was her idea for us to go this route rather than deal with the stress of maintaining affairs.

I just broke up a month ago with someone I had been seeing for a little over a year. That relationship finally gave her the confidence she needed to stay away from a marriage she had unsuccessfully tried to leave 3 times over ten years. My relationship with her ran it's course and ended peacefully when she decided that she was looking for someone with full-time availability (we had multiple very polite break-ups over related issues, specifically me mentioning my wife casually during the approach of intimate moments. Those break ups didn't last long and usually ended with "break up sex." Apparently there's no such thing).

Anyway, good to be here.

Hello TRBG,
Welcome to our forum.

Sorry to hear your last poly relationship ended; I'm glad it ended on an amicable note and that she has more confidence and that.

Sounds like you and your wife have a good relationship and are in agreement with each other and on the same page. Three years is a fair amount of time to have an open relationship.

Glad to have you with us.
Kevin T.
