Interesting that the responses are from those who live a lifestyle of polyamory defending their choice. Once you have made the commitment and gotten married, I think a goal for the relationship is to be peaceful and happy. I no doubt know she is going through a mid-life crisis. Thankfully my husband is also very supportive and we have both been terribly confused. I love my boyfriend and he expresses his love back! After that w swapped with a couple our age and a much older couple. He also badmouths me to his mom, niece and friends.

Live a secret life when it comes to weed. Even if they are watching football or odd jobs or hanging out, they are still spending a lot of time together, which you and your husband are not. Therefore, the roles changed and she got the better choices. Its all about love, trust, belongingness and not only abt sex. Does he not see it as a good idea?
