Yeah, recently I got back in touch with an old friend/co-worker I hadnt seen in 10 years. We got together and I didnt know if I'd tell her about me being poly. But after a couple glasses of wine, she told me she'd been having an affair for about 5 years. She was enthralled with how I could have multiple relationships without any sneaking around or deceit.

Her husband even found out about her affair after a while. She left her email open accidentally. So he let her know he knew, but they only discussed it briefly once. He didnt insist she stop, and their marriage went on as usual. He didnt want to talk about feelings, or boundaries, they just went on, business as usual, same sexual frequency, etc.

Love withers under constraint; its very essence is liberty. It is compatible neither with envy, jealousy or fear. It is there most pure, perfect and unlimited when its votaries live in confidence, equality and unreserve. -- Shelley
