My husband was very much against opening up our marriage two years ago, but I finally convinced him when I started dating my coworker. My husband even found a girlfriend for himself a year ago. Last month, my boyfriend broke up with me and I’m no longer into the idea of the open marriage. What should I do?
My partner and I have been dating for a few years, non-monogamous from the start. She connected with a stable secondary partner of two months recently, but this is the first time any of us had a stable connection outside of ours. We disagree on who we should spend the holidays with. Am I being too selfish?
I feel so illogically insecure about my husband’s relationship with his relationship anarchist girlfriend, who recently moved out of her nesting partner’s home. How can I identify these feelings and subsequently process these feelings better?
My girlfriend and I have an open arrangement for while we are long distance. She recently expressed that while she likes that I am not the jealous type, she wishes that I was a bit more possessive about her. What can I do?
My wife and I opened our marriage up about a month ago. Over the first month, my wife slept with five men while I started developing a deeper connection to a close friend. When my wife found out, she started getting uncomfortable with me exploring other relationships. It feels so hypocritical. Am I in the wrong?
My husband of fifteen years recently communicated to me that he too will like to date others to make new connections for himself. We’ve been “open” for the past eleven years, but I am really struggling with jealousy. How can I better manage my insecurities so that it doesn’t impede his progress?
I feel so anxious every time my boyfriend sleeps with another person. I really want to be ethically non-monogamous, but I hate being washed ashore by every little thing. How can I better manage my feelings?
