I loved everything about this and completely concur with all that you’ve said. I too have been in a long term marriage but also have another male partner. My husband initially had to work through some jealousy and possessiveness when this relationship went from just being a play-partner to a committed love relationship but now my other love is like a member of our extended family and everyone is happy. Learning to balance independence and commitment is definitely key.
