  1. @Will polyamory fix my husband’s cheating? i want to add that the husband in this story is religious. His pushback against the offer for polyamory may stem from the fact that many religious traditions blame women for every sexual mishap in a marriage. He may expect her to feel shame about not meeting his needs, thereby accepting the blame of the “unholy” cheating and absolving him. “Her end of the bargain” may be to carry his shame. Suggesting polyamory is saying there is no shame in it leaving him nowhere to dump any sexual unease he may have.
