Default New in world of polyamory and in need of forumcontact!

Hello i'm a married mother of 3 who more or less accidently became involved in a poly-relationship. It happened, in all honesty, but without looking for it. only after a few weeks it became clear what this was and after a while i found out about polyamory! Never heard of it before!

So, me, married, woman, 33 years old, my husband (married for 10 years) is 35, and lately i became involved with a man, 44 years old. Both of them are mono. Me, i enjoy my new vision of life, new experiences, et cetera. Also we struggle because it's new, not a choice (especially for my husband) and we have to adept to this new situation. We don't talk about this outside out home because of the children, shame, fear of not open minded reaction et cetera.

Hopefully this forum helps me in this proces!

Welcome to the forum. I do hope you find the information here useful. If you have any questions, feel free to ask them. At some point, we were all newbies and each found our respective paths. It is a constant learning curve, and I am sure you will do fine. I wish you and the men in your life all the best.

Welcome. Like you, poly life took me by surprise. It's been a little over a year and we are all working toward a life together.

Poly seems to work best when it develops naturally. It's challenging, to be sure, but there is a lot of good advice and information here. Welcome!

Well that is nice to hear! It kind of just happened and our conversations about it were always open and honest. After finding this way of life 'polyamory' it was just like what we were doing already! Only now i knew it was not strange or selfish but for other people also a lifestyle. So it was 'normal!'
