My journey into polyamory as a Mono married to a poly wife.
This new thread is about my walk on this side of the path. Poly Husband married to Poly Wife.
Hmmmmmmm....I don't feel any different. Don't look any different either, although I do notice a not so subtle sparkle in my eyes. probably just lust, but I'm good with that. No special tattoo, secret decoder ring or hand shake. Everything seems to be the same, and yet it isn't.
When T came out as Poly everything looked the same,yet wasn't. And I'm having that same experience again as I start this part of the adventure. I feel like I'm universe hopping.
Do you know how odd it is to have both your wife and girlfriend tell you to have a great night out on your date with your other Girlfriend? I mean seriously?
Polyamory is a powerful contextual shift, one that challenges just about every relational Ideal I've held for most of my life.
So why am I doing this? That's a very good question. I was challenged both Intellectually and emotionally on the point, Why not Poly? I thought about this for days, and every answer I came up with sounded like an excuse, a weak rationalization, a discussion without a purpose. So I moved.
Why am I doing this? Because I want to. I have no better answer to give.
