Would you be open for an open marriage or open relationship

Where if your significant other or spouse wanted to be with someone outside of the relationship, but still be with you. Would you be ok with that. Honestly, I would never be open to that. Because first of all I don't like to share my man with anyone and I feel that if you love someone then you are not going to want to be with someone else, but only with them.

I would never be part of an open marriage or open relationship. I would never share my husband with another woman. If he ever did cheat on me then my marriage would be over, that is that. It has never been open for debate and never will. I would never be able to trust him again.

I completely agree with you. I always told my husband before you cheat you better think long and hard about it before you do it. Cause once you cheat on me that's it you will no longer see me again.

I guess as a man the prospect of being with another woman is always enticing but then teh thought of your woman being with another man is never appealing.Furthermore with the advent of aids ,it would be best to stick to one partner.So I woule decline the prospect of being in an open relationship on those grounds.In addition what if your partner liked the other person better than you and preffered to be with that person .What would compound the sitaution is if the person you got didnt like you as much,then you would be left with no one .So to play it safe on all levels ,its best to stick with one partner

I totally agree with you on that. It is always just better than sticking with one person. I know I would hate to see my husband with another woman, it would hurt me so much and I know he would feel the same.

I don't think that kind of relationship would work in my marriage...

I don't think that type of relationship would work in any marriage.

This is something that would destroy my realtionship. Jealousy aside, for the sake of my health and my emotional wellbeing I couldn't allow this. I also believe that it is morally reprehensible. I know someone who is in an open marriage, and I now find it kind of uncomfortable to be around her. (My husband said that she propositioned him before we were ever together, but her husband is his best friend so he said "no".)

I would definitely feel uncomfortable around her as well. Me I would probably even distance myself away from her. But I am the jealous type as well as my husband and we both know in the end we would not like seeing our significant other being with another person. Thats just not right.

NO!!!! I don't like the thought of sharing with others my partner. Sometimes I wonder if that is what he wants...and I think alot of men would love that option. I cannot do it though.

i honestly could not share my man with any1 else, not only would i be extreemly jelouse i just could not cope with a sutiation like that and it would seem very unnatural we have a familly and he is our, it may sound selfish but thats the way i see it and could certainly not partake in this kind of 'relationship'

No way! Never! It would come down to either her or me! He can't have both! I'm with you on this! If you love someone you shouldn't want to be with someone else.
