My father is like that. He has divorced his wife, we can call K. He has his girlfriend A. He still lives at "home" with K. But they fight all the time. K is an alcoholic, and has no means of financially caring for herself. She does not work and is not in good health because of her disease. My father feels responsible for her, like a child. He loves her, but is not in love with her. As a result, he can't find a way to let go, but he is madly in love with A. So he lives a poly life, committed to living and caring for his ex, but maintaining a loving relationship with A.
It is unusually for sure, but I have learned to NEVER judge.
