#7 resonates with me as well - MrS and I never discussed it explicitly but it seemed axiomatic to both of us.

I wrote a long version of my thoughts on "couple boundaries" (as opposed to "personal boundaries") in one of my blogs here:

Perhaps I hadn't presented the boundary in the correct way to Dude - I had just recounted the conversation that I had with MrS (both of my boys have explicitly agreed to full disclosure of any/all details to be shared that I think are relevant) including the fact that MrS had proposed it and that I agreed. Perhaps he took this to mean that I had agreed reluctantly (which I had NOT...I thought it was good idea.)

All fixed now.

Me: poly bi female, in an "open-but-not-looking" V-plus with -
MrS: hetero polyflexible male, live-in husband (24+ yrs)
Dude: hetero poly male, live-in boyfriend (6+ yrs) and MrS's BFF
SLeW: platonic hetero girlfriend and BFF
MrClean: hetero mono male, almost lover-friend to me, FWBs to SLeW
+ "others" = FBs, FWBs, lover-friends, platonic G/BFs, boytoys, etc.
