Our relationship evolved into what it is today. It wasn't a plaaned thing at first, by any means.

We had an open relationship almost from the beginning, as my partner was very much up front and explained that monogamy was probably not something that would work. After some time, we decided that taking in another partner could be advantageous to us all and was something that we decided to investigate.

After nearly 6 years I can say things have gone very well for us. We have been fortunate, but I will say that it hasn't been without some ups and downs. Once again, I stress honesty, openness, and an uncanny ability to communicate your feelings, as well as being able to put the shoe on the other foot and understand other points of view.

I hope this helps.
