We talked about relationship stuff and realize that we both agree on a lot. I've always been open to talking with my kids and that's always been helpful. Also got to talk about how family gets strange and distant and all of the interesting change in dynamics.
On a previous post someone asked me what I meant by "open marriage" or relationships. People get focused on the sex part. I realized that the book was published in '72 and the authors meant for it to mean a open in the sense of communication, equality and individual lives as part of a long term relationship. The term ended up meaning sexually open and the authors were not happy about that. I think both definitions are OK, but confuse people.
Here is an interesting link on starting light.
