Endings


It is with mixed feelings that I write this post. After 16 years, PG and I have decided to end our relationship as partners. There will be more decompression to come, I am sure, but at this time, I can share that we are moving in different directions in our lives, and our course is no longer parallel in ways that would make this a successful connection.


Polyamory, and cohabiting with S, are neither the least, nor the greatest, of contributing factors to this decision. At this point, neither of those things are changing for any of us. This isn't a contentious separation, and we are committed to finding ways to continue forward in a purposefully kind manner with one another. There are no sides, no good guy/bad guy. Just differences in desires and dreams.


I will continue with this blog, which has been most useful to me over the past two years, and with my journey in poly. One of the greatest blessings to me has been the support and love that has flowed from the community to support us in this transition. Particularly valued has been the offers of support and caring extended towards the kids. Thank you all.

I'm sorry. I know ending things is difficult and emotional even if it is amicable.

Very, truly sorry to hear of it, and happy to hear that it's not a situation of hostility. As ourquad says, it's always hard, amicable or no. For what it's worth you've got the best wishes of Kitten, Flooftail and myself.

May future skies be brighter for you all!

Thank you all so much for the support and understanding! There have also been many private emails, and I'll be responding to them more individually by the end of the week.

This past week has been disclosure week. Families, kids, business and community. Being pretty well done with that process, things feel less weighty and more honest and open.

I'm sorry. Endings are never easy.
