It’s just a cover up for their failed attempt at marriage- a way to save face. This concept of Open-Marriage is insulting to the institute of Marriage itself. Call it an open-relationship but don’t label it a marriage because it does not hold sacred any of the values that a marriage tries to uphold. This isn’t love, this is lust. It’s all about sex in a highly sexualized and selfish world. There is no honour in these relationships.

Amen, well said. They need to get that twisted crap out of here. They’ve ruined their children’s perspective on a wholesome relationship.

i would like to know is it’s true what people are saying that you guys are splitting up?? well i feel that you guys should stay together because you guys make a cute couple.And also is it true that that you guys a have an open relationship? i really hope not because that’s fornication and that you guys are committing sin.And also what about your kids and do they have to say about of this and don’t you guys owe them an explanation,and what if one day they get married you guys are going to tell them that’s it’s okay to date outside their marriage.Well i just hope that’s it’s not true because i was hoping that you guys will never gat a divorce or committe fornication on one another.

I ain’t mad at my brother and my sister, as long as they have an understanding and they are happy, If they want a little something on the side, It’s all good just protect each other at all cost,communication is the key.. sex is so over rated and such a small part of a relationship anyway. aparently they are two people that are confident in who they are as individuals. At the end of the day we live once. what makes you happy may not be for them. keep the family tight, keep the finance in the home. Everybody has an opinion about how someone should live..my only concern is other people are involved! such as thier kids! what kinda message are they conveying to them? could be confusing.. someone gets up with feelings, this kinda thing could become dangerous. not to mention incurable diseases…good luck guys..

Been in an open relationship for 10 years. Happy as always!

Works for many many people, we just don’t tell you who we are because of your judgement!

It shouldn’t be a big problem for them. I don’t think anybody’s busting the door down to sleep with either of them.

its stupid…it’s just plain stupid…why be in the relationship in the first place…the point of choosing to be with someone is because u love them and want to be with only them…i get the whole “im attracted to someone else thing” but that is lust…something fleeting. u r attracted to potential great sex..nothing more..wow…whats wrong with just role playing with ur spouse if ur bored? damn…that’s the ultimate definition of the phrase having ur cake and eating it too right? i think it is not evolved…it is selfishness at it’s best..and i think this doesn’t even deserved to be classified as a marriage…it’s a union of two people who like to pretend to have a happy marriage upfront but who will screw someone else behind closed doors. its just nasty…and sexually immoral

It’s quite evolved. No one owns anyone’s body. The operative word by the other is approval. Of course, these occurrences should be rare. The only caution is constantly relying on outside tryst for sexual gratification is not good. More that sexual intimacy is lost, the deep emotional connection for a couple cannot be sustained. But in those rare instances, it about complete honesty. Yeah, I’d do her/him is more than fantasy, it can be real once in a while. It could indeed spice up an unshakable love in a marriage. I approve.

> Also, it isn’t possible to cheat
> when you’re in an “open” marriage.

Not true.

Open marriage involves faithfulness to a different set of agreements than monogamous marriage. In an open marriage, a relationahip outside the marriage can happen without cheating.

But agreements do exist, and it is possible to violate those agreements. And that’s cheating – violation of the marriage agreements.

That depends on how open the marriage is. It could be wide open, anything goes.

Open marriages get “dirty” do you see someone one night it turns into a “relationship” and on and one. Before you know it both spouses are competing dating other people. Not going to work. How do you keep H and W and kids separate?

This never works. Someone always falls in love with someone else and hurt is very likely.

I agree but i want to add that along with new feelings being explored…also the chance of an std and/or unwanted pregnancy (child support, baby mama drama) can come about…that spells SCANDAL no matter how much both will and jada say they advocate the “open marriage” BS!!!!
