  • I think that all really depends on the couple. Some people can handle it, and some just can't.

  • IMO a bad thing. Anytime you open your relationship to the "outside", you're asking for trouble.

  • "Opening Pandora's Box" is always a bad thing. Pandora's box is like opening the gates of hell.
    In your meaning though .. having an open relationship is fine (for those who want it) if they're not in a serious relationship. However, with that I don't think you can be in a truely serious relationship if you're boinking/dating other people. Being commited is souly giving yourself to the relationship with ONE other person.

  • I would NEVER

  • No! No matter how strong you believe you or your relationship is. We did it in our marriage for fun and it caused a world of hurt and trouble. We are still together after 22yrs but we both regret that part tremendously. I think the people who believe they can do it are in complete denial. But that is just my opinion from my experience.

  • I think it depends on the people and their situations.

  • I could NEVER do it..
    But that doesnt mean its not going to work in other peoples relationship.. To each their own..
    I think before its done it should be researched. talked about. talked about some more. clear lines are drawn or whatever & always make sure to check back that everyone is really happy..

  • I wouldn't chance it with someone I had kids with or if kids were in the mix.
