6:45 Topic: Do I end my marriage to try polyamory?
I am in my early twenties and have just discovered polyamory. It has been really liberating to discover that people live happily in this way an that I am not alone. There is one problem however: I am married and entered into the marriage with the understanding that we were both monogamous. My husband is not receptive to any of this, and it seems we want really different things. He wants to be the only one I love and the only one that I go to for everything, but I just feel I want more than he can give.
I just want to be able to connect emotionally and physically with people as I see fit, and this is incompatible with the relationship. How can I decide if poly is important enough to leave my marriage over?
