I've been using the words "my girlfriend" and "my girlfriend's husband" in casual conversation more and more lately. I keep waiting for someone to notice and ask about it. Finally today someone did.
"Wait, your girlfriend? I thought you had a husband."
"Yep, I do."
"Oh, so just like... your friend who's a girl."
"Nope, my girlfriend girlfriend."
"Oh. And your husband doesn't mind?"
"Nope."

Then our class started and the discussion ended. Later she flagged me down in the hall...

"So, you said your girlfriend has a husband?"
"Yep."
"Does your husband have a girlfriend, too?"
"Oh no. He figures one relationship is way more than enough work for him."

Then she mentioned about how she'd love to have "more than a 1-to-1 ratio" (you can tell we're science geeks) but that all the guys she's dated are really jealous and wouldn't go for that. I pointed out that it's just a matter of finding the people who would. Monogamy isn't for everyone. She conceded that point. I think we may have another convert!

On the phone later, my silly husband suggested that I should take her out for coffee... I think he believes I want to date every girl I meet. Oh well.
