Ashton Kutcher and Demi Moore allegedly have an ‘understanding'; their relationship allows them to have sex with strangers! But is this right or will their marriage be torn apart by jealousy in the end?

Personally, I don’t really ‘get’ open marriages. Sure, the situation is probably titillating for the guy in question — wife-approved sex with strangers allows a man to have his cake and eat it, too — but what does the woman get out of it aside from the thrill of the unknown?

In the new issue of Star magazine, Ashton Kutcher‘s latest alleged sexual partner, Brittany Jones, claims that  the 32-year-old and his wife, Demi Moore, are swingers! If you’re unclear of what this means, let me spell it out for you clearly: a ‘swinger’, by definition, is ‘a person who engages freely in promiscuous sex’ or ‘a member of a couple, especially a married couple, who exchanges sexual partners.’

Hey, it’s Hollywood, baby! Tinseltown is the land of too much money, too much exposure and too much time. If Ashton and Demi, 47, ARE doing the horizontal tango with others, it wouldn’t be the weirdest thing in the world. However, in the long run, it WILL be harmful to introduce new sexual partners into their marital bed!

Demi is clearly confident enough to repeatedly show off photos of herself in a bikini on Twitter, but what if Ashton actually preferred the other member of their threesome? The green-eyed monster of jealousy will inevitably rear its ugly head and doubt will settle into their free-loving relationship.

This brings up the question of exclusivity in a marriage. When you say ’til death do us part’, shouldn’t that mean the two of you, together forever? Naively, I think ‘yes.’ Promising ‘I do’ does NOT mean ‘I DO promise to give my husband sexual freedom so that he won’t leave me.’

How’s that for free love?

Does the idea of an open marriage appeal to YOU, HollywoodLifers? Weigh in below!
