Default New to Polyamory.

Hello everyone.

I was introduced to this board recently and have had a good read through most of it and am amazed to find that my situation is not actually as rare as I thought it was.

I am married, and my husband has a girlfriend.

Due to my health, I am unable to live up to most of my 'wifely duties' and this has led to the inclusion of another member to our 'family'.

I do love my husband, and I love his girlfriend too. I know he loves me, and I know that she cares about me a great deal.

Its all very new to all of us and we are still figuring things out, but thanks to this board, I do not feel as if we are alone in this situation.

I look forward to getting to know you all a bit better, and hope that some of you may be of some support to myself, my husband and the girlfriend.

Best Wishes,

Sapphire.

Welcome aboard.

While polyamory, open relationships, and swinging are all distinctly different approaches to non-monogamy, they are not mutually exlusive. Folks can, and some do, engage in more than one of them at a time--and it's all good.

Hi! If you haven't gathered from some of my other posts yet, our journey to poly stemmed from my medical issues getting in the way of me being a "wife" to my husband. We were discussing finding a g/f for us both, when I found out Karma had been cheating the whole the time. We've come a long way in the last few months. Glad you didn't have to go that route. But wanted to let you know, I understand what it's like.
