Why was Visenya wiling to share husband with her younger sister?

Did Visenya actually love Aegon, romantically? Maybe she also felt the same as Aegon, had to marry him because it was their duty as elder siblings. I'm sure she loved him and Rhaenys as family though.

The fact she was the elder sibling and Aegon was the eldest son and therefore the heir and more ''important'' is a different conversation I think.

Well she did describe him as the love of her life and they weren't known to have been with other people. Heck he even rejected offers of other marriages .

Probably it's like Maegor's case? They married by parents decree (for duty), but Aegon always loved his younger sister (see Jaehaerys-Alysanne, Baelon-Alyssa, Jaehaerys-Shaera, always younger sister never) leaving older brother's side), Aegon and Visneya  didn't have children and Aegon married Rhaenys for kids (and for love).

Love Visenya's attitude, allowing Maegor to murder half his family. She's no better than Cersei.

Maybe just the simple fact that there are only 3 of them and if their family is to survive and rule a realm having two fullbred birthmothers would be best for their stability.
