    Bad idea. Those marriages are shortlived.

    It did not work out very well for an artist friend of mine.  Really dumb idea actually...for him.

    Why would you get married then?

    LOL. that's what I said in my post. Great minds think alike, Randy and Tommy

    It wouldn't work for me.(Or my wife)

    Open marriage? I think that is called dating.

    right, b/c there's no such thing as an open marriage. That's the definition of a separation or a divorce.

    No matter how "opened" the marriage was, there would still be jealousies and they not a marriage make..................

    It is a great idea if you are planning to get divorced.

    it would never work

    NEVER A GOOD  IDEA..........

    If there is no commettment   there is no marriage,,,,,  PERIOD

    All i can say is,they didn't take thier marriage vows to seriously.

    Mr.Den

    Could depend on what kind of vows they make

    No, its not a good idea. It dosn't work in most cases,not for long anyway.

    Bad idea What about all those nasty diseases out there?

    Yes, there's a new aids virus that will definately kill you very quickly. It has originated in China and is spreading fast. How about all the other sexual diseases?

    We tend to oppose open marriage because of our cultural conditioning. I read a lot of SF/Fantasy and there are worlds "out there" where all kinds of relationships "work" that here on earth would be a baaad idea!

    It's bad for the children. And if there are no children,  and the couple wants an open marriage, then why did they get married ? That defeats the purpose of marriage.
