Default Update: Our kids' reactions

Hi all,

I'm trying to catch up a bit on the forum since it's been a while and I realized reading this thread that I never shared how our kids reacted. Well, it was like a non-event. It was literally like "yeah, so, what's for dinner?" We've talked about it many times since and they continue to be un-phased. DW's gf is here at least 1-2 days a week and is part of the family. Our youngest, now 5, will say things like "that's because you love her right, like you love mom?". Also, one time when I was going somewhere with her, he asked if she and I were going to get married.

Our kids have always been very accepting, as we are, so that is likely a factor, but I for one am so glad we are being open and honest with them!

Good luck to anyone considering the options!
Married for 14 years to an amazing man, "David Webb" on the forum
Discovered that I was poly in January 10,
forging my path together with the best partner I could ever ask for!
