So the OP and I have poly in common, but are about 180 degrees apart in the politics that come out in the comments. I see it as a huge rationalization with New Age-y jargon for not dealing with someone who is cheating, and not recognizing one's own responsibility in that kind of a situation. There was no generous thinking toward the other woman, who was being lied to. That kind of lying takes her decision-making power away from her. Talk about egos involved.

I'm with RP for most of this one!
