  • Open Relationships are not an option in my marriage. If you want to be in one, you shouldn't be married.

  • if it's what works for you then it's NO ONES business. if you're happy in your open relationship/marriage that's all that matters

  • this really isnt one of those I want to do it kinda things... She told her husband pretty much he could have another woman on the side as long as it didnt become serious and he didnt bring it home to her...

  • I think Open relationships are a wonderful thing IF and only IF both parties are open, honest and comfortable with the situation. I personally would love to have an open relationship, and not because I want to sleep around, but because I would like my DH to have that freedom. He on the other hand doesn't agree, so we do not have one. I think if both parties are able to compromise and be honest with one another Open relationships are very much a good thing. BUT, if one partner is being neglected, if there are emotional relationships with others involved or if one of both parties are not willing to be open and honest about EVERYTHING, then it won't work... Any Rules and Requests should be made up front so both parties know where the other stands and those Rules and Requests should be honored by both parties... If they are willing to do that, it can and does work great!

  • I guess if you are not religious and do not believe in that commandment "Thou shall not commit adultery" and if neither of you are committed to each other and have no actual values, then an open relationship would be right for you.
    It sure would not be right for ME!

  • She says he was such a sexual guy before they got together so she doesnt want to take that away from him.. she knows he loves her and she is actually the one who made the offer not him... she isnt going to do it just opened it up to him...
