Question My husband says he thinks he's poly!

Hello All-

My husband of 24 years has recently been telling me that he believes he is poly. I don't really know what to do with this. However, I have been really understanding and he has not sexually acted on this as of yet. He and I really love one an another and have children that are almost up and out. I have told him I don't know where I am at with all of this. I am growing a lot right now and expanding myself and questioning a lot of my beliefs. I don't know if I am interested in this lifestyle. I have never been with a woman nor do I know if I would like to be. I think some of this has to do with the fact that I do not have any really really close friends that are women. Quite frankly, my closest friend is my hubby. However, when the issues that arise are with him or our relationship, it makes it difficult to sometimes navigate.

I would really love for our marriage to last and I think he would too. I don't know how I feel about all of this, but I do know that I could not handle being any kind of secondary and would likely have to be included or I would get jealous.

There are so many issues that come up for me with this from the jealous to the practical. Just having to use birth control, condoms and worry about STD's sends me a bit over the edge as I have not had to deal with these issues in many years.

Does anyone out there have any guidance or advise for me? Any insight would be appreciated.

Thanks.
