I need to ask a very sensitive question. I hope it won't come to this, but I have thought about it. Suppose the counsellor suggests ending the poly relationship until we have worked out our own issues. I know this wouldn't go over well, with W. Her guy would probably agree, though, because he has committed to not doing anything to mess up our family or our relationship, because he himself has been on the bad side of an open marriage, and he knows how much it hurt him.
But suppose that is what the counsellor recommends. I'm trying to decide how I should respond, and how I should react to what would surely be antagonism from W. Any thoughts? Has anyone been in this position before where they decided to step away from poly for a while?
