Hi all, 3 years into MBB and job was taking the toll on me, and we were unable to get pregnant. I forced myself into an internal role to get some breathing space and therapy, and we ended up getting pregnant. But a few months in, I moved back to client facing and it has been absolutely difficult to spend time at home and keep my wife happy.

A friend opened up to me about her extra marital interest/dilemma surrounding that interest.

How do I establish my boundary? 🙏🏼
