That is just going to cause problems in your relationship. If you and your husband are happy then you should keep things the way you are. Women are superheros there is never to much work for us. Stay strong.

My husband and I were talking about finding a second wife. I wouldn't be jealous. I would love to have another woman around to help with things.

I could never be in an open marriage thats not a marriage a marriage is between 2 people not going out and screwing a bunch of people together or not together. When you decide to have an open marriage it changes everything your allowing that person to share such an intimate experience with someone else AND NOT YOU. on top of that theres the jealously issue and the trust issue how could you ever trust each other. an open marriage is wrong and anyone considering it shouldnt be married than if you wanted to foul around you shouldnt have gotten married and taken that vow..to love honor and obey...

I had a causal dating thing once right before I met my hubby in the army. This guy had commitment issues and he also I found out that he was racist, so I cut him off and told him that I was interested in someone else. He begged me not to that when he got back from his mission (army stuff) that he would start getting serious with me. But it was too late, and that was supported by the fact I didn't want my kids to be racist like him, so I told him no after dating before and after our seperate deployments over two years of seeing each other when we could. I tried but couldn't be ok with a racist being my husband, and his commitment issues bothered me if he really could commit to me. I am glad I did because I couldn't ask for a better husband than who I am married to now. I saw that guy I dumped right before we both left Germany and he was snobby with me acting a little hurt, but I couldn't be ok with racism so he had to go, even though I liked everything about him except for that and his commitment issues.

My, now ex, informed me after we were married, "Oh by the way, I am poly - and I need you to get in board with that."

My ex didn't feel it was wrong if I was told about it first. My ex said if I had a problem with it, then it was my problem.

So, nah, I don't have good feelings about this

I've been in open relationships. I've discovered that they are not for me. I have friends that it works out great for, though. I'm just an attention hog. If the focus is not all on me, I'll go where it is.

I couldn't do it either, I am waaay to jealous. I find the whole concept hard to understand. I have a friend who was in an open relationship, her fiancée would get home late from work and have to sleep on the lounge because she had another man in their bed! Talk about respectful!?!

I had a chat about this with my hubby and the only way would be if like one of us where in a coma waiting to die or paralyzed from the neck down, but we would not want to know about it.
