Well, I didn't mean to go parading around with a poly family on your arm, LOL, but maybe go to a poly event to meet people. But you already know someone poly - that's cool! However, your husband sounds pretty set in his ways. I don't know how steeped he is in Indian culture, but my sense is that the reason he believes it to be such a terrible thing might be less about impropriety and more about it saying to the world that he's not enough of a man for you. To "let" you do this would be a sign of weakness in him -- not you, you're just a woman.
