Dear Roe,

I have never admitted this before, but I am in love with my husband and my best friend. I married last month, to a man I adore. We’ve been together for more than a decade, since college, and have the perfect relationship in so many ways. We are both independent but complement each other very well. It is a very supportive, equal and loving relationship. We have a great sex life, and a really wonderful mix of mutual friends, and friends from before we met. We travel a lot, have good jobs and great excitement in our lives as well as future plans.
