For various reasons, I choose to be semi-anonymous on this blog but a little background might give you a little context.
Since 2007, I have been married to a wonderful man and we practice responsible non-monogamy. We’ve always been non-monogamous. We practice open, honest communication. In 2009 I had my first baby, and I want to be the best mother I can be for him.
(Edit: He’s still my baby, but he’s not a baby anymore. I can hardly believe how fast he’s growing up.)
As for my beliefs, I am an atheist, but I am spiritual in the sense that I believe in living mindfully, ethically and practicing kindness every day. I think by modelling healthy values like love and honesty, we can raise our son to be a good, moral ethical person without needing to subscribe to the monogamous lifestyle that is the norm in our society. We don’t intend to hide anything from our son, but we also don’t intend to flaunt our lifestyle in any inappropriate way.
Though there is nothing wrong with swingers, I wouldn’t define myself that way. My secondary relationships are often committed, real, meaningful relationships that exist on their own. My husband and I don’t restrict each other sexually, but we communicate often and clearly about our intentions and expectations. We are happy in our marriage because we continue to grow and share love outside of it. We probably wouldn’t have gotten married if we didn’t intend to have an open relationship. It’s something we share and it’s part of our mutual trust and respect for each other.
