As Emm says, I'm not sure how this changes the fact that you are helping him cheat on his wife.

No, I can totally respect that. A lot of us aren't "out" about our poly lives, not because we are ashamed of it, but because of the consequences. This *is* a public forum, and this means that there are certain things that you absolutely should not divulge. Completely understand.

Then we can really see where this can go. Until then, we really need to stop doing anything that is cheating."

Yes, our choice. But I will not ask him to leave his wife.
Ah but you see I'm NOT suggesting that at all.

The way I see it, there are two choices:
1. Carrying helping him lie and cheat to his wife, who has the expectation that their relationship is monogamous.
2. Take actions to resolve it - his choice (not yours) between sorting things out so he is open with his wife, or ending the relationship. Either way this is saying "we will not tolerate cheating, or help you to cheat - up to you how you sort it out.

Continuing to support the cheating usually ends in major grief, because very VERY few people can hide this forever. And when it does all come crashing down there is always some collateral damage. This will more than likely be you guys.

And maybe you should think of hitting a big "Pause" button on this until you HAVE got this worked out in your minds....
