Welcome to our forum.
Your story makes me glad, it says so much about the good in opening up a relationship, and it makes me feel glad for you that you have found freedom and happiness together. Imagine if you hadn't taken that dare, to talk about it in the first place! You would have been stuck in this unhappy situation, though it would have been the fault of neither of you. I hope there will be more stories like yours (the one with the happy ending) in the years to come.
I hope you'll enjoy your time on our site, and will find many threads that speak to you. Don't hesitate to post any thoughts or questions you may have.
Love means never having to say, "Put down that meat cleaver!"
