Thank you so much for this, and not only is it enligthening to see another perspective on the issues discussed here, but it’s actually quite spot-on, and I’m not even sure if I could have described the things you so perfectly stated myself, even though I’m living inside of it. You’re pretty spot on, the things that we don’t take for granted are things that we’re faced with every single day, and as I’ve stated before, having an additional set of eyes on you always sort of changes you in a Foucauldian Discipline and Punish sort of way; in a real way, the relationship becomes a community rather than a two-way street, which certainly adds to the notion that a balance on all sides must be achieved. I’m happy with it, and as I’ve stated in my work, our relationship is a closed relationship and not some free-for-all, which I think is a lot easier to manage, personally — I couldn’t do an open relationship — so, for those possibly considering this material and the merits of poly, it doesn’t have to be some wild and crazy dynamic that we can’t handle. Most of life is pretty ordinary, but it’s the small things that make the biggest difference.
