Because having extramarital relationships is not committing only to your husband or partners.
Have you been in an open marriage?
No I have not, and you do not have to experience something to have a valid opinion about it.
Maybe. But if you have not experienced something, how can claim to know it is a fact
For example, thats like saying all transvestites are gay. You can't say that for a fact. But you can have an opinion or assume!
Haven't you ever seen articles by people who closed their open marriage because it wasn't working? They are pretty common, for reasons that are probably obvious, but the fact contradicts your point. If couples in an open marriage aren't committed, how do you suppose one of them can say "let's not do this anymore" and the other usually abides by their wishes?It is also an established fact that the vast majority of people in open marriages don't act on their privileges often if ever. You simply maintain a rule that extramarital sex is okay, and if someone wants to act on it they do so within the limits of their spouse's comfort level.

Thats a very mature reply. An open mind is what you have and thats a very powerful tool.
@Guardian45 at what cost? at what level of denial?
I don't know. Tell me what cost? Why any denial?
Its NOT for everyone, but it is for some!
I think it's for everyone. One might not feel like that earlier but for sure they will later. No one can find internal happiness in an open marriage.
What if your husband can't 'serve' you, but wants you to be sexually satisfied?
@Guardian45 Then he should take some Viagra or Cialis.
LOL 😆 🤣 😂 Viagra, etc Isn't ALWAYS a possible cure!
So far off the mark. Truly open relationships are usually the strongest. I know from experience
@coolaboola Best of luck to you in your stong open relationship. 🤦
Haha... thank you. I needed a good giggle lol
@coolaboola Laugh all you like, for it is you who is a clown.
Explain how im the clown while you're banging on biblical? Lol
True. This form of marriage is not for everyone.
What would you say are its pros & cons for you?
It seems to work very well for you.
@Red_Arrow it only works if both parties agree. And trust each other
"Marriage" is a written social contract. There are conditions that clearly penned down. How do you make that "open"?
Because they don't love each other.
Why the f would I want to be in an open marriage?
So if you haven't been in an open marriage, how can you know what an open marriage is like? How do you know they don't love each other?
You can't truly love someone if you want them to have sex with other people. Come on, man.
Really? Why not?
Imagine you are dying. Your wife has taken care of you faithfully for 30 years without your sex. She has endured, but you KNOW she NEEDS a man to take care of her needs. She tells you a man is interested in her, and she likes him, but she would NEVER do anything WITHOUT your approval. You LOVE her dearly and do NOT want to deprive her of some temporary relief. Want would you do or say?
I think you just don't understand true love. (The romantic kind, that is.)
I'm sorry. I fail to see your point. And you did not answer the Q I posed to you.
I'm sorry; I didn't see your question.
To answer:. She can marry that other dude after I die. Until then, she can use a dildo or a Sybian or a fucking machine.
