    Back in the 60's or 70's I believe, this was called "swinging". Don't do it, it will ruin what you have.

    @ nmew, as there is STILL freedom of speech in this country, if folks identify the questions with a particular religion/faith, why not post that in their thoughts? And it sounds like you too are "cherry picking" as to what you believe in or not. But then, that is your prerogative.

    I grew up in the '60s and '70s and at one time had an open marriage. I've discovered since then that it was just an excuse to have my cake and eat it too. If someone wants an open marriage, then why bother getting married? An excuse to not work on the marriage, which takes a lot of work.

    Open marriage means one or more are NOT committed to the relationship. Polygamy / plural marriage is not only economical in this day and age,but it brings more hands to make daily life work lighter for all. And contrary to some who know nothing of the Bible, it is very much accepted by "God" and is how He used it to form His Treasure, the people Israel. I find that, especially american women, that their vanity and hatred towards other women and wanting to "own" their man is the main obstacle to poly marriage in this country.

    Why would you get married in the first place if you wanted an open marriage, stay single and date as many people as you want,marriage is for people who want to spend the rest of their life with the same person, I would never do it, I didn't start dating again until my divorce papers were in my hand, thats how much I believe in marriage vows.

    Don't bring religion into this. That wasn't part of the question. In many Muslim countries men may have multiple wives, so their God says it's OK, and in the Bible many (non-Islamic) men had multiple wives as well. Stop cherry picking what you choose to believe and accept.

    You couldn't truly love someone and do that to them. And to even do that would mean you aren't ready to be married which is a committment key word being "commit" to someone. And also you take an oath before God to be true to that person and so for you to do this would be mocking God and lying before God. That to me is very stupid and not only that you are setting yourself up to get hurt and also for possible diseases and death.

    otherwise known as 'cheating' and whoring around.. don't call yourself married if you're going to date around.. what idiot actually thinks cheating on the one you have vows with is going to help that relationship? you're becoming one with another man or woman and then you go back to the one you're married to and feel more connected to them? who are you kidding? it's like people who go to strip clubs to better their relationships.. how? you leave your wife at home and go to a strip club to give your mind and heart to another woman dancing around a pole.. in our sick f'ed up society where we have to accept all behavior and be ok with it, sometimes you have to call things what they are..

    My husband is also my best friend. I. Think if you truly love one another you do not need another person in your marriage. We have been married 33 yrs. and both of us are still best friends and only have eyes for each other. You have to learn to give as we'll as receive in order for a marriage to work. Take time out of every day to hug ,kiss,and tell each other how much you love him.
