6. A question
Edited on Thu May-19-05 06:53 PM by MountainLaurel
Is the wife aware of the "affair" and approves of it?

I think that issue is what defines whether the situation is awful and appalling, as opposed to just plain ol' polyamory.

Edited to note that I saw your post above where you note that the wife has no idea. In which case, yeah, it's a crappy situation. But no more so than if the hubby were just having an affair with one person.
