  • I think it works for some, and not for others - just like many things out there :)

  • MY opinion--I think they are stupid.. Why the hell would two people get married and then want to sleep with someone else? Marriage is a bond between two people..

  • I don't believe in them. To me a marriage is between 2 people and that's it. There shouldn't be other people brought into it. When you said your vows it was making a commitment to each other not to each other and who ever you might bring into the relationship.

  • They might work for some but not for me, I have enough trouble dealing with one relationship at a time!

  • An "open marriage" is NOT a marriage at all. Why get married if you're just going to sleep with other people?

  • Other than insurance and other benefits.......why get married if you are going to sleep with other people?

  • to each his own...but in my honest oppion a marriage should be between two people the wife and the husband and nouthing more...

  • I think if you want to screw other people you shouldn't get married.

  • My Hubby was in an "open" relationship for about 2 yrs and it didn't work. He said the trust in the relationship was never there, there was no bond between them, because they shared themselves with others, etc... It's not healthy, he was very unhappy. He said he's glad he experienced it so he was sure to seek out someone that didn't want anything to do with it, and only wanted him. Yep, that's me, and there's no way I would want to share my Man with ANYONE....
