Your WLM is contained within that pairing.
He, S, and I are all fully aware of this...that there are 4 separate relationships here. We aren't "bringing her into" our relationship, necessarily, but inviting her in. We are always in full communication with her...it's not like she doesn't have a choice. As far as the WLF, it is again separate relationships that we are trying to figure out how to make work and integrate.

Or does your wife want her to become a second submissive?
We aren't sure yet how we are working it out, but P is submissive. I am dominant over him and him alone. I have no interest in that dynamic with S, and I don't think she has interest in that dynamic with me. She and I have started talking about how we can both dominate him...what that looks like, what the rules are, etc.

You're welcome to explain the concept to her, show her how it works in your own marriage, and offer her the possibility to join in. But if she's not into that, then you and your wife have to respect that and let her do things her own way. Maybe that means things don't work out the way you imagine. You have to be accepting of that possibility.
Again, it is her choice. It always has been and always will be. She has known about that dynamic of our marriage for much longer than we have been dating. It was only recently that the idea was brought up to her to participate. She and I didn't have our first conversation about it until this last weekend, in fact, and it was mostly me asking her what (if any) role she wanted in this dynamic. We have a lot to do as far as working out our roles in the FLR (female-led relationship...I think it's better fitting for our situation) and the triad. But we are all committed to doing that. Should she decide she doesn't want anything to do with the FLR, it's completely her choice, and we won't love her less for it!
