    I was doing some reading about how in most marriages one of both of the partners end up cheating on each other, another article I read says couples with open marriages or couples who swing together don't have the infidelity issues and thus, have more successful marriages. I can see why because obviously they don't have to worry about cheating, a friend of mine does this with his wife and they are the happiest married couple I know. Thoughts?

    I think a married couple should do what they feel works for them. So if going to swinger parties actually makes their relationship better, then that's no sweat off my back. I haven't gotten married yet because I haven't seen the benefits of voluntary castration and domestication-- :razz: --so I'm pretty naive about married life. But I suspect I wouldn't be happy knowing my wife, the woman I would want to spend the rest of life with and raise demonic spawns with, was getting banged by some other guy.

    I think that even as I would be doing another girl, I couldn't be able to fully enjoy it and all I could be thinking about would be my dick's happy place being invaded and desecrated by some animalistic douchebag. And I would hope and pray that she felt the same.

    The whole situation would make me go, what's wrong with ME?--as self-centered as that is. So yeah it would be a blow to my fwagile male ego, like I wasn't good enough to meet her needs--and then that could lead to me being like, well then she can fuck off if I'm not good enough. So in conclusion: no, I don't think I could be in an open marriage.

    I don't get it. Why marry if they are going to be bonking others? What's the point?

    That is depressing, to me personally. I don't see how people can't curb their appetite for sex. They need a gym pass.

    If I wanted variety in a marriage, I would get a divorce. Something would be very wrong. And doesn't anyone worry about STDs? Yikes! I would. I like being divorced but having a special friend that I don't have to see too often and who doesn't smother me when I do. Love that! :D

    No open marriage. Perfectly content and happy in mine as it is. 1 on 1. Marriage is not just about sex.
