Apology accepted. And I am glad to hear the first 8 years were fairly balanced, but sorry to hear that with the ramping up of your career at the same time as bringing children in the world coincided, you (plural) lost your way.

When everyone involved is not approving and supporting, it's not the kind of poly I want to practice.. Will muse some more about this on my own blog I think.
You're welcome! Loving is easy, but knowing your limits and listening to your lover(s) needs and balancing everything is where the work comes in, and the rewards begin. It's hard at first, but does become second nature over time!
Love withers under constraint; its very essence is liberty. It is compatible neither with envy, jealousy or fear. It is there most pure, perfect and unlimited when its votaries live in confidence, equality and unreserve. -- Shelley
