I wanted to reach out and see if there were any other poly folk in this community… I just lost my partner of 2 years, 2 weeks ago, suddenly to an aortic aneurysm…he was only 38. I have a primary partner (husband of 5 years) and I’m struggling with my grief of the loss of my partner. I love him deeply and it’s so challenging to grieve this loss while also continuing on with the life and love I have for my husband. Emotionally, I feel like I just lost a boyfriend. A man I deeply loved and admired and respected and had regular conversations with and saw weekly. But holding that space for him feels so complicated in this poly space where I have my husband too and my life still continues on in that traditional sense while this other huge piece of my life is not.
