Drop him (or her, whichever the case may be). For whatever reason (fear probably but it is possible just assinine and immature and very superficial) they are not going to help you and will stress you out more than anything and you don't need that kind of person in your life. He probably believed he wanted an honest, open relationship when he said it but he didn't realize what was coming. Like my husband says, "He didn't sign up for that." My husband by the way stayed by me physically and emotionally through the breast cancer experience. He is the kind of man you deserve and will be free to find when you shrug this one off. Sorry I am even answering this question for you. Best of luck. PM me if you like.
