OPEN MARRIAGES

Whats your thoughts on this? I don't know anyone who participates in this lifestyle. Ya, what ppl do is their own biz, but just curious if you think its okay or right when married. I have heard alot of heartache comes out of it when the fun is over.

I don't agree with it if you are married.

  • If you can't be committed then don't get married.

  • I have no problems with Open Marriages. I have good friends that are this way and it works for them. But their reason for opening the marriage is simpler and straightforward than mine was. They knew ahead of time that they were not monogamous people.

    My marriage got opened for what I now feel is the wrong set of reasons. My stbx wanted variety and pushed on it. Rather than give him all that he wanted, I invited him to find a gf who would.

    I know open marriages can work but it's got to be for reasons agreed upon by both parties. Resentment will kill an open marriage just as quick as a closed one.

  • I think that whatever floats your boat, but it is not for me. I am too jealous. I do think if a couple goes into a marriage agreeing to an open marriage it will probably work just fine. But if a couple goes into a monogamous marriage and start an open marriage as a way to spice things up, then it is most times ends badly.

  • honestly, those couples might as well wipe their ass with their marriage certificate, cause IMO it's basically shitting on the sanctity of marriage. marriage is between two people only. its none of my business & i dont care what other people do, but that is how i feel about the subject.

  • I think it's a bad idea and if that's what you want to do, don't get married. The only couple I knew that sort of had an "open marriage" is divorced.

  • I agree that open marriages are not wise but do believe in open relationships of people who are not married.
