I'm not sure how much that applies in our situation either. My time is split pretty evenly between both my husband and my boyfriend. Time with my husband usually is just as carved out and set aside as time with my boyfriend, otherwise our relationship kind of gets lost in the shuffle. I think, in fact, that lately my boyfriend actually gets me when I'm more emotional, because it feels safer to be more emotional with him. That's what I'm here trying to get ideas for correcting, because it's not fair to him, or my husband really, to be only relying on my boyfriend for emotional support.
