It's a sign you've been married for 15 years. That exact thing is not uncommon in lengthy marriages and has nothing to do with polyamory.
Does it have to remain that way? No. I suspect a search on "recapturing the spark" or some such will garner a great many resources for how you can rekindle lust and passion in your marriage.
When speaking of various forms of non-monogamy...it ain't poly if you're just fucking around.
While polyamory, open relationships, and swinging are all distinctly different approaches to non-monogamy, they are not mutually exlusive. Folks can, and some do, engage in more than one of them at a time--and it's all good.
