In your honest opinion how do you feel about open marriage? There was a episode on Ricki Lake the other day and I'm still amazed. *On the open marriage aspect I think I should let it be known that these people were already married for about 12 yrs before they started having a open marriage. At that point they had 3 kids and didn't want to get divorced.*

Also would any of you swing with your husband or have a threesome?

I know these are personal questions so if you don't feel comfortable answering feel free to inbox me.

Not saying im for it or against it. But wanted to point out monogamy is a fairly new concept. Some men are able to go the rest of their lifetime with only one woman(at least that we know of....) but there was a time when men had their wife but also slept around, it was just human nature. But the wife knew he was coming home to her. (Not all men did this but ones who traveled usually did) i remember reading a journal of a woman who went along with a man on his travels, essentially as his mistress. The wife knew and even sent a homemade blanket as essentially a thank you for taking care of her husbands needs, as shr had the kids at home and couldnt join in his travels. I personally dont judge. Unless it is you and your heart who are we to say whether its love or not.

I would definately like two of more husbands.  Because I do the work of at least three or four people and men are extremely lazy - I think I need at least 5 of them just to get a good day's work done.

Threesome?  Sure, why not?  Husband #1 can go f*** husband #2 and #3 and even #4 and #5 if he's into that.  I just want to get some sleep.  Leave me out of it!!!

 Honestly? I feel like, why even get married if you want to run around like your single?

IDK, in my marriage it is my husband and I. There is no need or desire for anyone or anything else in there. If either of us even suggested it, there would be cause for some huge problems.

I like that show. I love the big family and always having an extra hand. Those kids seem well adjusted. I work full time overnights and my husband works too. We pay for child care and still have to clean and cook and whatever. Would be nice to have another person in the house :)

 Well, I didn't see the episode but I've watched "Sister Wives" and I find that sort of arrangement interesting.  SOMETIMES, I wish my dh had someone else to "bother".  lol.  (I'm not that "into" sex, just me though.)  Sometimes, too, I would love to have the bigger family that could come along with that kind of arrangement. 

Threesomes?  Probably not.

No way would I be comfortable with an open marriage. I am not into sharing, and I can think of too many things that could go wrong.  If a man is not content with me only, then he is not the man for me.

If my husband even suggested such a thing, he'd find himself buried in the "back forty."  I didn't get married to have sex with anyone but him.  Luckily, we both think the same.

I'm not for open its just my DH and me. But in the bible many people had tons of wife's

 My dh and I love each other and there is no way either of us would even think about an open marriage or a threesome.

No. I call that dating. Marriage is a commitment of many things, including fidelity.
