As someone new to the 'poly lifestyle' myself,please take your time,it is certainly not easy and it challenges alot of previous ideals we all were brought up with. I always struggled with monogamy because I always thought one person 'should' satisfy me and I became intensely frustrated when that didn't happen...that has been the biggest revelation for me,that I can have more than one person in my life to satisfy different needs..In some parts of my life 'labels' are necessary but in realtionships I have found them a burden..
Communication is the key and like LovingRadiance said,it may even strengthen your relationship with your husband...you don't have to learn it all in one go but learning to express your emotions fully is a powerful experience and something I never really appreciated until now.
