We've decided to take a break in the relationship... not for a long time, but still. It's a matter of getting in touch with feelings, emotions, figuring out if they're still there.

It took us some talking to get here... A break in the relationship felt... weird. It was strongly associated with monogamy in our heads, but we eventually figured out how to define it in our context (1), to have it make sense to us.

So, we're on a break in the relationship.

  1. the question "so, while on a break, can we see other people?" isn't an issue in the context of an open relation... quite a relief, really. ↩
