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.

Quoting PartyGalAnne:

Swinging is different than an open marriage.
I've never met anyone in an open relationhip where it has been successful, but I know lots of swingers who are very happy.

Not for us.. We are fulfilled with each other.

We aren't in an open marriage, but I find the idea interesting. I'd like to know how it works for people in an open marriage, as I've never met anyone in an open marriage . . .that I know of. I really like the idea of a threesome, but strictly as a fantasy.

I agree!

I would never take part in an open marriage. I don't believe in them. I would feel I wasn't enough for my husband. I would leave before consenting to be in one. Threesome NEVER There is no way . That is strictly fantasy material in my world.

My thoughts exactly!

Quoting MagicTemptation:

We are in a monogoumous relationship. However we both hold the belief that we are capable of loving more than one person without taking something away from the other. We would never "swing" or just have sex with someone just for the physical aspect. 

We have talked about the possibility that if we both fell in love with another woman(I am bi), and she with us, it would be something we might explore. But we have no intention on going out and looking. It would have to be a relationship between the 3, not just sex.

This exactly for me too.

Quoting RheaF:

 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.

An open marriage isn't for me or my husband.  I won't share my man with another woman, and he would never share me with another man.  I am not judging anyone who chooses to have an open marriage. If that is what they want, I say go for it.
