I realize you admitted to being snarky here, but what's wrong with him reaping the benefits of your happiness? I've seen that elsewhere described as one of the benefits of poly - that the positive energy from one relationship can benefit another.

If something that triggers a lot of negativity in him can bring him something positive as well, I wonder if that would help temper the negativity a bit.
