about the real-life side of polyamory: because none of those books prepare you for that moment when you have to tell your boyfriend of 3 years that you’re marrying your boyfriend of 10 years.

The timing was good; the Wrangler actually started the breakup talk before I told him this, though it was the same conversation. The Wrangler and Blanche are apparently getting all monogamous–which has a perfect sort of poetic justice–so I got to ride my announcement on the coattails of that.

Still. It’s an experience I don’t plan on repeating.
