    • Hi Momof3 thanks for saying, but what made you decide to give it a try with the openess of your marriage if you don’t mind me asking and don’t mind sharing?

    • Definitely not.  If you‘re not exclusive, what’s the point of being married?

    • NO!  Seriously, why get married if there isn’t going to be an exclusive relationship? I’m not Morman, and from some shows on Oprah, even those women have a time of it when Mr Husband gets another wife. NO way I want to be on a calendar of my turn for intimacy with Mr Husband. I’m generous spirited, but not That generous!

    • NO! Why marry if you can mess around? Marriage is between just 2 people.

    • It wouldn’t be for me, but it might work for some people.
      Even if they aren’t exclusive, I would think there’d still be some security in know that other person is there for them.

    • Talk about playing with fire!!!

      I had a friend (no, really...i’m talking about a friend) who had an open marriage with her husband.  He would send her off with a kiss and a “have a good time” as she left for a date or a night out.  After many years of this, my friend began to feel that, if her husband really loved her, he would tell her not to go...that he wanted her home with him, etc.  After feeling this way for awhile, she began to resent him and decided that divorce was the answer.  

      I asked her...“How do you reconcile changing the rules in your marriage and not telling your husband?”

      It’s not that i agreed with how they ran their marriage but i definitely did not agree with resenting the man for maintaining his position without the benefit of his wife telling him how she felt.

    • I guess if you are a polygamist and raised that way, who am I to judge?  Personally, it is just plain wrong for me and I doubt my hub would be happy with it either.

    • If it works for the couple and thats what they want then more power to them. But I don’t see why you would get married and then have an open relationship unless they just relized that this is something they want to try because they need to spice things up or try something different? or their marriage isn’t going well but they don’t want a divorce. Anyway, it’s not for me.

    • Definitely not!  If you‘re going to fool around, why get married in the first place?

    • If I was married not that I intend it to happen I don’t however if as a married person there were things I was unwilling or unable to do that my husband wanted and he found someone able or willing as long as he promised me faithfully that he was seeing her only for that and no other reason then fine I would not have a problem with it at all.
