I’ve sat reading the morning newspaper, having coffee, all the while hearing my wife making love to another man. Take a look, The Eternal Embrace of Love, A Love Boundless and True, Starts Nowhere Other Than Within, Life is too short. That means I may not see Nancy until early next year, knowing that every night she is in the arms of someone else and I’m staring at the ceiling in a dusty city I now call my temporary home. I’ve carried my wife’s suitcases to a waiting taxi with her lover inside and said goodbye while she jets off for a months long holiday. I heard that often during my first years of marriage. I’m no longer jealous of Nancy’s lovers. She's poly and I'm not. Nancy is, as you can see from the picture above, a very attractive woman, so it’s no surprise she currently has two primary relationships with single men who adore her almost as much as me and a few secondary lovers she sees infrequently. Being a secure anchor for my wife may seem a mundane life to many, but it is what I know she needs and it’s something I want. I’ve lived with her while she had another lover stay with us for months. She wants me to imagine her coupling with her lover and feel an overwhelming emotion overpower me until I finally demand to replace him. I am confident in my looks and masculinity, but I have never wanted to not be in a monogamous relationship with Nancy and that gives her the confidence to live the life she lives. Nancy is extremely intelligent and witty, but she is not career driven. Nancy proposed to me knowing me well enough to know that my favorite response to every one of her requests is yes. We are at the ten-year point now and she is more exciting and interesting than ever, and better dressed. I came from somewhere between nowhere and goodbye and grew up in a poor single parent family and I had an accent then that identified me as just that. Right now, she is with a lover waiting until the pandemic ends on the leeward side of an Indian Ocean island while I am doing legal work in the Middle East. I also am the primary parent for our son and the only breadwinner, but I enjoy taking care of Nancy just as much as raising our son. She also laid down the structure for our marriage, the central tenet of which is that she is poly and I am not. We have had our difficulties. I have had friends of Nancy try to seduce me over the years and even her mother, who is the second most attractive woman I have ever met, has a crush on me and calls me every day. And she did this over the strenuous objections of her family because she is Jewish, her ex-husband is Jewish and I’m not. You Need to Be a Better Listener, Independent to Interdependent: The Unexpected Family. She wants me to resent her lovers, resent her infidelities and go back to how I felt when she had her first affair. It was an unexpected whirlwind of a courtship and marriage that sort of overwhelmed me at the time but, as the saying goes; you buy the ticket, you take the ride. Brian O’Connell is a reporter on Today With Sarah McInerney on RTÉ Radio 1. I’ve heard my wife turn the locks on the front door after a weekend away with her lover. Then the pandemic swept through the world and she and her partner decided to stay where they are until a vaccine is found. Stop looking for love; start working for it. Don’t be jealous, it’s just sex. Maybe that is the secret to a successful marriage. My name is Brian D. O'Connell. Thankfully I am successful enough to spoil her like she deserves and she can travel and grow and live life like an adventure and come back to me happy and fulfilled. By Aly Vander Hayden. Another precondition that Nancy laid down was we had to get as far away from her ex-husband and her family as possible, ideally outside the United States. I didn’t marry her for who she was at the time, but for who she would be in five, ten or twenty years later. In a normal year I may get 50 percent of her time, and that seems to have worked well for us in the last nine years. I’ve lived through numerous pregnancy scares knowing I was not the one who potentially fathered the child. We haven’t seen each other since early February of this year when she left with one of her lovers for an extended holiday on an Indian Ocean island. She's ten years older and we just celebrated our ten year anniversary. My wife told me that the first time she saw me she knew she was going to leave her husband for me. My wife, Nancy; By Brian O’Connell. That is just who she is and, if you love her, you have to accept that and learn the art of taking good care of a JAP. by Brian O’Connell. In her phone calls she explicitly tells me her lover ‘fucked your wife last night, again,’ hoping that a surge of jealousy rolls through me. I want what she wants, to think of her again with overwhelming desire, to dream every night of holding my wife in my arms again and to imagine her erotically as the wild woman she is whilst she is away. Take a look. Thanks to the latter qualification, we were living in London just two months after we met. We don’t think of ourselves as a poly couple nor do we identify with that community. Don’t be jealous, I can love two men at once. She never really left and got a quick divorce and married me before the divorce was actually finalized.
