New Poly curious
I recently ran across an article on polyamory while researching the idea of asking my wife for an open marriage. The polyamory sounds like something more in tune to the way I have always been wired. We are married 20 years and I have always been missing something. I love my wife dearly and we have 4 children... BUT. I need more and different things she can provide. When I say "things" I don't mean sexual. I mean emotional, spiritual or other *ional things I can't think of right now. I hope I am making some sense to people here.
She has always spoke about being bi-curious and recently I have become a little curious myself. I am not saying I want a relationship with another man but I would consider it in the context of a triangle.
We have been having intimacy problems I have urged her somewhat jokingly to get a boyfriend but I am actually rather serious. I guess in a way to back door the idea if she has a boyfriend I can have a friend of my own.
I guess what I am looking for is advice on how to handle seriously bringing up the subject of polyamory with her. I think polyamory would be easier to swallow than "open marriage". I am not looking for permission to cheat I am looking for permission to bring more love and add another level of love to our relationship.
Anyone get me? I am not sure if I am getting the point across.
Thank you all in advance.
