Amusingly, in a >700 word heartfelt post, the most notable comments I receive offline are re: polyamory. There is too much divorce, boredom, sexless marriages, brother/sister like relationships and repressed folks out there. Thankfully I did not experience any of those conditions in my long term partnership although there were significant challenges while my wife was on various debilitating cancer treatments for 3 years. It comes with the territory and sometimes you accept things in life for a time even if it is not giving you any of what you need. For some unlucky folks, libido waxes and wanes for long stretches or fades completely. There are better solutions but society may not get comfy with them for a few more generations. Are relationships and egos so fragile that the word can’t even be broached?
