Even after he'd agreed I still wasn't sure he was on board, until I kissed a friend of ours, some other friends found out, and I found him justifying our lifestyle choice to them and why it made sense - it was a lovely moment and I appreciate him so much for being so understanding!
This is sweet! Thanks for sharing it.
