^^^This! You do not "own" her, but she IS your wife. If she is persistent, tell her out of "love" you are setting her free. And out of "love" she is respecting you and your position on a faithful marriage. Be firm, improving yourself as a husband does not make you weak or a beta. She is gaslighting you to create distance from you and your affection.

I am hedging my bet that she will "magically" produce a guy that is just right for her...Only to find out that she has been with him for quite some time. Sorry.

Its not uncalled for to want a partner who believes in fidelity and trust in each other. You are not wrong here. But originally when the opening of the "marriage" was ventured, you may have mistakenly thought you were "supporting" the marriage, when in fact you just put a figurative gun to it's head....
