Six months that I have been paying for my choice through reduced access to my most amazing children ever. Six months where I have stayed silent on this topic because of the guilt and fear of being judged for what I did. I’m not staying silent anymore. When I married I meant what I said in my vows, and never intended for it to be my “starter marriage” like some do.

Dear Captain Awkward, I am a 34 year old straight woman in an open marriage with a 39 year straight man. I have taken far more advantage of the openness of our marriage than my husband, at least until recently. I have had a string of long-term affairs and short-term flings.

Can’t stand seeing my ex husband with someone else? My ex husband soon to be after a year is dating someone else. I know this from facebook. I can not help myself from looking.
