Oh joy, waiting. Haha... but I understand.

Uhm, poyandry-type can be replaced with triad..? That's all I wanted. Better description of what's going on.

What kind of help are you looking for?

What is it about your current situation that is "not working" for you?

If you are looking for advice about your specific issues, you'll probably have to go into a bit more detail about your situation.

The textbook response to what you have written so far is this:

Adding more relationships is not something you do to "fix" your existing relationship. You need to have a solid, stable foundation with your current partner(s) in order to entertain the idea of pursuing additional relationships.

Judging from the fact that you found an existing thread to add to instead of starting a new thread, I would say that you have been doing your homework and reading/researching on this site and elsewhere, so you have probably read what I just said in some form already.

Poly relationships that last seem to start best with a solid foundation of honesty, respect, communication and time management. How are you doing with these... the time management sounds off no?

I think I would suggest getting some help with looking after the kids and plan some dates with your husband first off. It sounds like you don't see the man you have in your life more than you need another man. Think how hurt your man would be if you suggest this too him when he quite possibly misses you too.

See what changes come just be tweeking your existing situation first, before jumping into adding partners. That is what I would do anyway.
