What is the deal with open relationships? Is it really fulfilling? All opinions, welcome.

An open relationship just wouldn't work for me at all. I am all about being in a one on one relationship. I don't want to share. If I care for someone enough to want to have a relationship then it definitely couldn't be an open one. On the other hand, I know this couple (good friends of mine)who are actively open. They both have several partners even though they are married. They are very very happy this way. Both are very up front with their activities. They have been married now for almost 9 years now and are happier than some of the other married couples I know. I agree with the other poster here who said that a relationship is all about committment so I don't agree with open relationships. However, to each there own, right?

yes, like I said above, live and let live. But for me, It just wouldnt cut it. I have a jealous streak and If I am committed and love someone I couldnt stand to even think about them with someone else. Also, I couldnt see myself with anyone else. I couldnt do it.

I think for some people they can be fulfilling. Some people are just happier in plural relationships, and that's fine by me. If they are happier that way, then I don't see a problem with it. Some people however are too jealous to make them work. Other's have to work through those issues and actually are able to overcome them and become quite happy in them.

yes, live and let live. I was just wondering. I am too jealous for that to work out for me. I expect trust, and commitment in my relationships, but everyones different.
