Whatever Floats Your Boat

My wife of twenty years has decided that she needs to date other men. I want her and want to stay married to her. She is fine with it as long as I don't interfere with her dating. Last weekend, she went shopping and came home with new clothes, a new hairstyle, pedicure and manicure. I thought this was just a phase until Monday, when dressing for work, I saw her take off her wedding ring. She also was wearing thigh-high nylons instead of pantyhose. When I commented on those things, she explained that she is "not married" anymore, and that she is going to openly flirt to find preferably a younger guy to have an affair with. As for the nylons versus pantyhose, she said that they were sexier and make for easier access. I was extremely excited watching and listening. She noticed this and taunted me with it. She told me how she would make sure she brought home the evidence her first time she has she sex with another man. I am at a loss, yet I am very turned on by her probable infidelity. The last thing she told me was that I was to move into the guest room since I was no longer needed for sex. I am more turned on than ever, and I told her I would do as she pleases, but I was not going to give up on her. I said I wanted to stay no matter what. Her answer while laughing at me was, "Whatever floats your boat. We'll see how this goes." Out she went to work. I'm hoping to stay with her.
