Me personally. No I am not nor would I be.
However.. I do have friends that are or have been. I have 2 friends that have been in very happy, very comfortable open relationships for many years. 1 for over 10 years, the other for over 20 years. Their success and happiness, they personally attribute to: mutually agreed upon ground rules, mutually agreed upon expectations & the fact that this is the type of relationship BOTH spouses wanted and agreed upon willingly and openly.
On the flip side. I have another friend what ventured into an open relationship with her then husband. They subsequently divorced. They attribute the failure of it working form them to be: both spouses weren't fully and willingly on board, ground rules and expectations were not established, and both were not comfortable and secure in their marriage to begin with.
For some an open relationship is great and works well. For some, it's not so great.
