Hell, yes! How long have you two been talking about it? Some couples take a year or more to prepare by talking with each other, with others, maybe even counseling, going to poly meet-ups, etc.. I think it's a great idea to read a good poly book together, such as Opening Up by Tristan Taormino or Polyamory in the 21st Century by Deborah Anapol, and review each chapter/issue with each other.

You can also download some worksheets at Taormino's site: Free Downloads from Opening Up

There are so many ways to practice poly!
