Dear Captain Awkward, I am a 34 year old straight woman in an open marriage with a 39 year straight man. I have taken far more advantage of the openness of our marriage than my husband, at least until recently. I have had a string of long-term affairs and short-term flings. During the past 8 months I have basically been living with another man in a neighbouring town to the one I live in. I am drawn to men who are starkly different than my husband, who is an intellectual, moderate in terms of his vices and has a disdain for the type of men who spend every evening in a pub. I have a drinking problem but it is not a problem I feel any need to resolve and I am drawn to men who are also drinkers like me.

Tracy Michelle Hargett Abusive marriages suck ass. I was in one. A woman is unlucky enough to get with an abusive or adulterous husband then what you describe is the result.

This selfishly pissed me off, among other things, because we were busy, busy dealing with my life, not hers.
I’d checked out many other shrinks before her, and only found one other that seemed, well But that woman lived in San Francisco and here I was in New York City, and Barbara had come highly recommended from the friend of one of my sisters.
