Open to open marriage?

I was at a friend’s party recently and a bunch of couples were in attendance. Somehow the topic of marriage came up and one of the guys said that he and his wife contemplated having an open marriage. Of course, we all got nosy and asked loads of questions but they were pretty candid about what they wanted to try.

The husband basically said that he did not feel that monogamy was a realistic idea in terms of “forever faithful” so why not be practical about it? They agree to be honest when they meet someone they are attracted to. They also believe that they can date and pursue romantic interests as long as they inform the other.

I personally can’t imagine doing this type of open marriage, but I won’t knock it. I just think traditional marriage is not for everyone. If a couple can find a way to make this work for them, who am I to judge?

Would you ever consider having an open marriage? Do you think it is realistic?

yes – I would but I already deleted. I immediately checked airfare and dismissed it. it was like $800 for a 7 day, ocean view with the single supplement. even less $$$ if you have a cruise mate but I always sail solo and so am used to paying extra. princess has some really good deals now too. i’ve never sailed them but i’m really considering it.

leggs – yes. I double delete. don’t like stuff sitting in the recycle bin either. I’m looking to cruise in the next couple of months so the cruise lines are blowing my inbox up. I generally only check for waived supplements or perks and then it’s delete, delete, delete.
