***This question comes from Sirius Radio’s Doctor Radio Channel 114 (XM 119) that I was fortunate enough to be a guest of on Tuesday, February 8, 2011: The Psychiatry Show with Dr. Michael Aronoff***
I have been married 41 years to my wife. We got married very young, as that’s how things were done back then. I knew something was missing in our marriage about 30 years ago, but we had a family, and she is a good woman, so I never acted on anything I was feeling. Well, about a year ago, I ran into a woman from high school that I hadn’t seen in years. I wasn’t anything special back then, but she was prom queen and quite a beauty. Our relationship started out as a friendship, but then things became romantic about six months ago. I would never leave my wife, and she knows that, but I am madly in love with this other woman. My wife and I are in therapy (I told her the truth) and now she watches me like a hawk. I ended the romance with the other woman, but I still miss her. I love her and I love my wife. Is it possible to be in love with two women at the same time?
