It might happen in the future! You never know!

DH was jealous and wouldn't consider being poly or open for a long time. And now, here we all are.

ETA - - I should probably post my own non-traditional family story and pictures of DH & SO. People ask me about it all of the time.

Re: a non-traditonal family here...

I LOVE this thread. I was in a poly relationship with another woman and man (is that the right word, we were all together equally, but just the 3 of us) for a while before I met my fiance. That couple is now monogamous together, as are my fiance and I (and now we each have our own kids, so it's kinda all "settled"). But I could definitely have seen myself long term with them. My SO is in no way open to a third, and with him I wouldn't be either. It's interesting how those things go. But this thread is so great- there's so many ways to love, to be a family <3

Re: a non-traditonal family here...

I was a lot more open when I was younger... I was in an odd sort of threesome in high school. It wasn't quite a complete threesome, but it was more than a V. I had a strong emotional relationship with both of them, and we had an intimate relationship that stopped just short of going all the way. She wanted a threesome but she was too jealous to share him with me. I loved him with all my heart. Heck, I still love him. Don't get me wrong, I love my life and my family as it is now, but if anything ever happened to my husband he would be the first person I turned to.

As I've gotten older I've become more religious. I don't think I could be in another threesome, but I could handle having a sister-wife In fact, I think I would like it.

There's no way I could talk about things like this IRL. Everyone would look at me like I was some crazy person. I live in a relatively conservative town. As much as I'd like to be in a poly v, I don't think it will ever happen. I'm too afraid to even bring it up to DH. We've never talked about anything like this before.
