My husband says that his true nature is not monogamous, and that he would have liked to have an open marriage. I have always stated I don't want that, and even separated a couple of times for this reason. But each time he comes back because he says he loves me and doesn't want to be without me, or says that there are some addictive patterns behind his infidelity, and that he wants to work it out. We're once again in this limbo, after he asked for us to work it, did EMS Online together, and him doing addiction therapy for the last year. But now I'm pregnant, and once again we're in that limbo of him saying he is just not naturally monogamous but that he'd sacrifice his true nature to stay with his family. This hurts me and confuses me. It also makes recovery very weird, since I don't feel like we're on the same page most of the time. I don't know if I should stay or leave. I'm scared of bringing up my daughter in this environment.
