I have been with my husband for four years, and he recently asked me about opening up our relationship. I was a little surprised by this because we are healing from infidelity, and it feels like this is a way for him to have his cake and eat it too. I am not really understanding how we can approach this in an ethical way. Can opening a relationship after infidelity be considered a form of ENM?

I've been in a relationship with my partner for about two years. We're both part of the LGBTQ community – I identify as non-binary, and my partner is transgender. Our relationship started off wonderfully, full of understanding and mutual respect. However, lately, I've been feeling a bit disconnected from him, especially when it comes to understanding each other's evolving identities and needs.
