Woman's husband supported her relationship with another married woman

Writer Leah Hamilton opened up about her open relationship and how she fell in love with a mom at her children's school.

I fell in love with another married woman at my kids' school. My husband supported me through the whole relationship — even the breakup.

Many people have always viewed monogamy as the only relationship type that is acceptable, but in certain cultures, this has not always been the case.

In the last few years, individuals have come to realise that non-monogamous relationships are just as valid as monogamous ones.

It is important to note that non-monogamous does not mean cheating.

Brook.org.uk defines it as: "An openly non-monogamous relationship is one where partners agree that they want to be together and are open and honest about the fact that they have other partners. For this reason, it is also sometimes referred to as ethical non-monogamy."

There are also various kinds of non-monogamous relationships like polyamory and open relationships.

One writer, Leah Hamilton, recently wrote about her experience in an open relationship and how her husband supported her after she and her girlfriend broke up.

Hamilton met her husband while they were at university and have always been in an open relationship, but after they got married and had kids, it got more difficult for her to express that side of her sexuality because she was too busy focusing on other things.

That was until she met another married woman at her kids' school and they both realised they were interested in each other in a romantic way.

After the break-up, Leah luckily had a wonderful support system in her husband as he consoled her as she was working through the heartbreak.

Through this experience, Leah said that she had learnt so much more about herself, her husband, and their relationship.

While she was dating her ex, he was happy for her and when times got tough, he was there for her. She believes her husband is the best person she knows.

The couple have been together for 12 years and it seems like they are still going strong, no matter what.
