Default Congratulations to mono and redpepper

For those who may not know it, mono and redpepper's 1 year anniversary together has arrived. I would like to take a moment to acknowledge their relationship, congratulate them on this milestone, and offer my love as redpepper's husband.

2009 was an incredible, fun, challenging, sad, happy, radical and transformative year for redpepper and I. It was a year of beginnings, endings, and profound change both individually and within our relationship. During this tumultuous time, through serendipitous chance, mono and redpepper met, fell in love, and ultimately created the loving, mutually supportive, and deep relationship that exists today between them.

I am very thankful that mono is who he is; for it is he, as much as it is redpepper and I, that has helped this to work. I have a great deal of respect for him for what he has personally achieved by getting to the place that he is in today. Amongst other things, he has had to learn to embrace a different way to look at relationships, deal with the public scorn that resulted from us coming out, and let go of an old life without knowing what, if anything, would replace it.

I will never forget the first time I spoke with mono. Despite redpepper's assurances to the contrary, he was convinced that I was going to murder him!

redpepper, my partner in love and crime, I am glad that you have found someone great to love and be loved by. It's clear how happy mono makes you.

It is important to me to somehow publicly acknowledge this milestone in their lives. Without doing so it will likely pass unnoticed by the world, and not receive the social legitimacy it deserves.

redpepper and mono, I am proud of what you, and we, have created so far. Much love on your one year anniversary, and here's to many more happy years!

I love to hear positive stuff like this of people who are really making a poly relationship work. All the theories and academic treatises are, in my opinion, no substitute for the sort of thing you folks have!

Congratulations, may there be many more!

yes congratulations to you too polynerdist! you have written a lovely and very touching message yourself, recognising the value of poly relationships getting the "social legitimacy" they deserve, (despite the prejudiced judgements of those outside them, whether in this community or outside).

all the best to all three of you and all your loved-ones x

I am truly honored and humbled by your words, my friend. Thank you for opening your own heart and accepting me as chosen family. Your guidance and reassurance has given us the strength to push through some very painful and trying times. Your quick action in times of family crisis during our coming out are a testimony to the strength of your character and belief in being true to yourself. You are an example of strength and integrity for all around you. You are the pillar of Redpepper's life, I am humbled by your character and am proud to stand next to you and offer my support as part of our chosen family.

To Redpepper...thanks for hanging in there...honestly, you blow me away.

This forum has been a place to collect my thoughts and journal. Every now and then I get to help some one....thanks to all.

Peace and Love
Mono

P.S. I can't believe he didn't murder me!
