If so, what kind is it? Did your relationship start out open? How did you get to where you are? Are you happy?
S/O. Just curious.

I'm in an open marriage and it works well for us. As to kind of open, it's not quite swinger and it's not quite poly. We didn't start out open when we got married. But looking back, I should have known I was poly but I was trying so hard to be a 'good girl.' Ha! My hubby was convinced that traditional marriage wasn't for us despite the misgivings I had and he's right. For me love is not something I can deny nor do I want to deny. Being open has allowed both of us to be ourselves, truly ourselves with no reservations. Our relationship still has it's ups and downs. We both deal with stronger emotions than what I'd expect in traditional marriage. The level of commitment is higher I feel because we've eliminated the biggest divorce reason off the table. There is no, 'you cheated so I'm leaving' talk. lol I'm happy with having an open marriage but I still have hubby problems like any wife has.
