Where I reveal that my boyfriend is obsessed with another woman

Dear Reader,

I am writing to ask for the use of your wisdom and experience. I have known for a few months now that I am no longer the only woman in my boyfriend's life. But it is only now that we're on holiday (which entails spending much longer periods of time together than usual) that the full extent of this other relationship has revealed itself. Consider the following behaviors that I have noticed over the past several days between my boyfriend and this 'other woman' (who, I might note, is traveling with us):

He simply cannot keep his hands off of her. On occasion, in response to this, she'll actually kick him (or hit him - it's hard to be sure). He doesn't seem to mind.

He kisses her regularly. In public. In front of me (of course, he also kisses me in front of her, but that's perhaps better left for another letter). As far as I can tell, she doesn't kiss back. Her lack of affection doesn't seem to faze him.

When confronted with these facts, he doesn't even try to deny anything. In fact, he suggests that he will only really get to know her in May. At which point, he's apparently planning to take her home to live with us. As if that weren't enough, I believe I'm expected to feed her and make sure all her needs are met while he's at work.

So, dearest reader, what should I do? Is it wrong to just give in, to embrace this new relationship? Dare I even enter into a relationship with her myself? Because truth be told, this other woman is kind of cute, and totally captivating.

You'd better get used to this threesome because that's how it's going to be. :) Fathers and daughters...

Isn't it true that he and the other woman are planning to flaunt their love in front of your family?

had my dad ever did this kinda thing to Ma Holocaust, she probably would have killed the other woman, cooked her, and fed her to him, then killed and eaten him, and fed me and my sister the leftovers from both. Dunno about sis, but I certainly would have agreed with her.

if she's cute and captivating enough to be kept around and moved in come May, I would reccomend that she be responsible for feeding herself and otherwise meeting her own needs, helping with the baby, and scrubbing the toilets lest she get kicked to the curb.

Ms. Mood, you are certainly right. I didn't have such a close relationship with my dad, only seeing him on alternate weekends, so I must confess I find the whole 'dad' concept a bit odd. It'll be cool to see how it works for my daughter!

Scholiast, I've caved. And I'm really into that Thor is so into the whole becoming a dad experience. :-)

Fourlegged, yes, it's true, but it's not so bad. You know that you and the rest of the family will be flaunting your love for her in front of each other, too, so I think it will all be all right.

Chibithulhu, I've decided to embrace the other woman. But that being said, if she does turn out to be an infant prodigy who can change her own diapers, I'm absolutely not complaining!
