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?
