In either case, it sounds like the three of you all have "the stuff" that long term polyamorous relationships are made of. Congratulations on finding your way forward to arrive at here and now. It all sounds very scary and intense and sincere and compassionate so far. Here's to hoping that you all find more of what you're looking for.
Very intuitive post Al, yes, the two weekends have not given us near enough experience to know how long-term this is (and what we are able to adapt to and cope with), but it has opened our eyes to other choices and options in life than we previously thought possible. It has been all those things you said (scary, intense, sincere, and compassionate) and then some, haha. But we continue to discuss daily our thoughts, fears, and hopes.
Thank you for your response and best wishes! It's going to be a long road, but it's nice to see others have traveled it and have some experiences to share also.
