Taking it all in stride
I am a Married monogamous man. I have been married for 10 years to my childhood sweetheart. Let me start by saying she has always been poly. We got married young and she changed everything for me. Sadly, it made her miserable. So for the first 9 years of our marriage she played the role that I wanted. This past year I have tried to be more sensitive to her needs. I have agreed to change my expectations and see where it goes. Im supportive of my wife, I love her and try my best to respect her needs. Its not easy for me at all, especially because this doesnt come naturally to me, and it has been a roller coaster. There are times when I appreciate the fact that she has calmed down a bit and seems more balanced, although the contrary is much louder. She acquired a BF 9 months ago. She originally was interested in just Sex, but it has progressed quite a bit in the past 6 months, and she is now in love with both of us. Like I said before, it is something I just have to work towards. She still expresses her love for me, we still have sex. She tries hard and I hold no resentment towards her. Its just the concept of my one only in love with someone else... maybe the gaps will fill in at some point I hope, for both of our sake.
