incorporating the family
Hi Red Pepper
My partner is the the second kind of poly and your post got us discussing his children. In a few weeks his secondary will be coming to stay with us for a weekend. She would like to meet his children who only come and stay with us alternate weekends and school holidays. We will sort it by just arranging a short visit but the point is that if she were to come when they are here he feels he would not be able to be affectionate with her. Why? Because he is afraid that his ex would not approve and would not want the children to be exposed to this kind of "lifestyle".
I would love to know how others deal with their poly lifestyles and their children? Z's kids are currently 10 and 11 and have been brought up in a very traditional way.
