IT HAPPENED TO ME: My Best Friend and I Fell in Love While We Were in Relationships with Other People
My husband was jealous of what she and I shared, and I can't blame him.
Privately, I wrestled with my own competing desires; I longed for a simple affair that wouldn’t threaten my notions of my own sexuality, the bedrock of my identity. Instead, things felt complicated.
Some modern couples are allowing each other to have online flings, flirtations, and sexytimes despite being in a committed relationship. That's cool, but I wouldn't be able to pull it off.
