I'm so sorry this happened to you. ((hugs))
I'm sure I speak for those of us who are in similar situations as you were that we feel your pain as we sometimes fear a similar fate for ourselves.
My heart hurts reading your post.
7 weeks, 2 years. It's irrelevant. I understand the sanctity of the "Primary" Relationship however I completely disagree with veto's. It's cruel and disrespectful to invite someone to give their time, energy and heart to your partner and then snap it away like it never happened.
It gives the whole Poly concept a bad name and it's probably one of the reasons why it will be a struggle for it to be so "mainstream" as many would like.
Be thankful that it's only been 7 weeks and not several years like others have experienced on here.
You deserve so much better. Be thankful they are gone.
