over my feelings about my wife's actions during a spontaneous mmf threesome? Me and my wife have been together for almost 9 years and married for 3. Up until recently our relationship has been fantastic in every regard. We still date regularly, our sex life is great, we do nearly everything together, support one another emotionally, each do our equal part to hold the fort down and raise our family and we've never once been distant from one another or run out of things to talk about. We've never even had a real fight before all of this, because we've always both made the effort to communicate our feelings and emotions and to understand each other. We're both relatively adventurous sexually and have joked we'd probably end up having a threesome one day, rather it be mmf or mff, but never had any concrete plans to do so. A couple months back circumstances had a mutua male friend staying with us for several days and drunken decision making led to the three of us having a threesome. The problem is that I had a lot of negative feelings about the way my wife behaved during the course of our threesome. To the point that I have developed ptsd and severe depressive disorder in the aftermath of it all. For one there was an extremely obvious greater amount of focus on her part towards our friend than me during the threesome, to the point that I felt not only neglected in all of it, but actively resented for being involved on her part. I feel that with the degree to which she fixated on and focused her attention on our friend during the whole thing that she treated what should have been an experience we both shared  as nothing more than an excuse to essentially have an affair without repercussion under the guise of it being a "threesome". My feelings on that go beyond just the unbalanced nature of her seuxual attentions during the threesome. Other things that bothered me were 1. As I said before our friend was in our home for several days and after the threesome had been initiated she behaved as if it was okay to make sexual advances with him the rest of the time he was there. I don't  mean that the two would straight up start fucking with or without me there, but she'd  think nothing of say.. straddling him to get to something next to him and grinding him a little in the process. And 2. I was uncomfortable with what I saw as a lot of displays of affection during that time I was uncomfortable with and found inappropriate.  These ranged from kisses to moments of her cuddling with him, albeit briefly. It all took awhile to really sink in and process for me emotionally,  but once it did I suffered a full on mental break which led to many arguments and problems in our relationship and prettt much every aspect of my life from work to parenthood.  The thing is that other than that 3 day period our relationship is still great and nothing has really changed about us as a couple, but I have never been able to forgive her actions. I feel hurt, disrespected, unloved, inadequate and humiliated by her behaviour. I feel like she couldn't possibly love me the way I love get and have acted in such a shitty manner  over the prospect of having the chance to sleep with someone new. She's offered alternative explanations to her actions other than it being about just getting to sleep with someone new, but I don't honestly believe them. I don't trust her not to hurt me worse down the road due to her impulsive sexual behaviour, because if she could behave in that way to my face, god only knows what she'd do behind my back. I don't think that her actions are one a person that loves  another would take, I don't think she really cares about my feelings, I don't think that she could really possibly be happy in our relationship and have done all of that and I don't really think things can work between us any more with all of things out. I just know that a lot of how I feel could be linked to me suffering a traumatic response to the situation and my feelings on it early on, so I worry that my feelings could be unfair, irrational, cynical, an overreaction, selfish or unreasonable as a result of that trauma. So I'm asking here for advice on rather my relationship seems worth saving or even savable.

Sorry for any possible spelling/grammar mistakes. I did all of this from a phone at 3 A.M. and it was a lot to write(though still somehow the SHORT version!).

Well, I'm no expert. Nor have I been in a marriage.
There is a lot to unpack:

1. She hurt your feelings, it sucks. I would feel the same in your place. Try talking with your wife about it. Try to express your feelings about that situation. Not just "I felt bad about it or sth". Tell her exactly how you feel "humiliated, inadequate". You need to feel like a man, not a lamp in a corner of the room.

2. I can understand how it can be perceived in your eyes as "almost cheating". But is it? The problem is you agreed to the threesome, maybe next time try to set up some rules?

3. Well, marriage isn't the easiest thing. But so isn't any relationship. After talking to her think it through, really hard, if this "one off" is really something you should be worried about? Do you trust her that she won't cheat?

Just some ideas to think it through. Talk to her, let her tell you how it looked from her perspective. Maybe talk her into a ffm threesome, where both women would be focused only on you?

I am not an expert. Just my thoughts. I really hope you get this straight. If you can't live with that thought, then divorce. If you can compromise or swallow this, stay. I don't think you want these 3 days to poison rest of your life.

But remember this: her loving you isn't excluding her behaviour. Sex sometimes is feral and if you are really into it, you can sometimes forget to think straight.

How is this a great marriage? It sounds like you're just a powerless cuck making excuses for a wife that is a slut. How did you even get suckered into this deal to begin with? I have an idea, even a solution, but I can't confirm either without knowing your whole story.
