    This open marriage stuff is utter crap
    Your feelings are bound to get hurt at some point
    and there is so much more satisfaction from having only
    one person in your life to share love & happiness – thats why marriage even exists! Its what 2 people share with eachother ; these celebrities are using their relationship as a public “show” for the world to see (look im so happy! not)

    If the rules are set out in advance, there is no freer feeling in the world than knowing you CAN sleep with someone else and still go home to your partner if you wish. THese marriages will likely last longer and be stronger than most others. (However, the hurt feelings on the part of the “dallianced” have to be considered.)

    I have been with my girlfriend for 15 years. We have a semi open relationship. We both like women and if we communicate with each other and are truthful about our feelings, it can be a way to having your cake and eating it too.

    If someone is going to have an open marriage, why even get married and have children? Totally ridiculous, it is the same as a guy having 5 wives. Stupid!!!

  • ex Kaybecer

    THink of it as a primary relationship and secondary ones. Think of it as being sexually and emotionally liberating. THink of it as a more honest relationship than most marriages.

    They key factor being honesty and care about the partner’s feelings. As a human male I have been what you might call “cheated on” and it did not hurt my relationship. ONly when my partner fell in love with another guy or out of love with me did that happen. Sexual infidelity is not /should not be a cause of divorce especially if both parties know that monogamy is a very unnatural state for most humans.

    Hope that clears it up for you.

    There is no point in getting married if you’re unwilling to be faithful. People continually make a mockery of marriage, then blame the institution when their reckless and selfish rules don’t work.

  • Haukku Amil

    You are absolutely right! This is exactly how dysfunction gets passed down to the next generation.

  • ex Kaybecer

    Obviously you have two negatives and should eliminate one. I think “unwilling to be faithful” is what you meant. And that is a tall order as something like 70% of married men are not faithful.

    And if your black and white world is as narrowminded as you seem to be, you are right. For the rest of us, some of us are enlightened and progressive enough to forgive or accept the occasional dalliance (you honestly think monogamy is natural?) while not losing track or sight of the big picture; that is, keeping the primary relationship intact. As I stated above. Did you read it?

    I don’t know one person who has blamed marriage as an institution for their divorce. Usually they rightly blame the other partner (cheating or otherwise). Again, what is with this narrowminded worldview of yours?

    Since I have never been divorced, I assume you will congratulate me on my honesty with all women? Or does your worldview only apply to those who practise EXACTLY what YOU define “proper” acts to be?

  • ex Kaybecer

    She is absolutely wrong in that she did not read the comments above. But I am not a proponent of straight marriage anyway.

  • ex Kaybecer

    But I find it fascinating and depressing that you believe a healthy attitude towards suexuality is a “dysfunction”. It’s people like YOU who are unfit to be parents.

  • steamboat

    You’re dead wrong on the English lesson.

  • ex Kaybecer

    Vague, imprecise, unhelpful. YOu must be conservative. Explain how. EVen I am not perfect, but show me where I am wrong.

    IF you can.

  • ex Kaybecer

    YOu have a relationship most of us would envy. Congratulations,. Hold onto her. And don’t ruin things by getting married. I only hope the rest of us can be as happy as you two.

  • TeaTown Cowboy

    Why do you see the need to be married if you’re gonna F around, just stay single but together?!

  • ex Kaybecer

    Don’t know who you are talking to , but I advise men today to NEVER get married. I can’t see why men would voluntarily agree to give half their stuff to a woman they hate

    All of you all are disrupted in the head. Man is always trying to change something God has made an Institution, that is you would not understand “you are in the world, not of the world”. And for you women that don’t believe that there are no true men who stay with one woman, apparently,you don’t have the understanding that your efforts in looking for men in Bar’s ,even Churches, concerts and Gym’s are simply not the place to look in this day and age. Too much if it feels good do it. Instead of observing and realizing that if you don’t have the same outlook, and belief in life,equally yoked in spirit ,mind body and soul, with that individual, you will fail . With that so called true marriage.You young people are too rapped up in image ,being popular, and what other;s think. It is apparent that in this age, by your comment;s and actions,for the last 3 generations there has been nothing but kids raising kids. No moral’s or value of self ability or worth. If it feels good do it. Most of you don’t realities everything that passes through your brain, is passed to your kids, that is what is causing problems in the world you believe and live in. Whit no boundaries of self control, on your part and the difference of knowing what is good and what is evil, the ball confusion of the surroundings that you individuals put yourself in of not giving a damn in the first place is ,put a curse around your own neck,without realizing what your doing to yourself. It is sad to see that you young people are so confused about God’s institution of marriage, and the truth of what it is about. In time you all will see on your own,you cannot change what God has made, you arrogant youngsters,are in a posistion of self centered,all about me and that is your first step to self ruin……

    I disagree that you shouldn’t get married if you want to f**k around with other people. There is sex and there is love. People get married because they are choosing to share their life with someone. I don’t know about everyone else but I wouldn’t have chosen to share my life with everyone I have had sex with. Its still going to be natural to be attracted to other people, even if you have chosen your life partner. An open relationship or marriage allows you to be honest with your life partner about these attractions which actually builds a stronger bond. It also eliminates the need to lie and to deceive if you choose to act on your impulses which foster trust. There are studies that have been conducted that state the number one reason for marriages ending is infidelity. If you take infidelity out of the equation, how many marriages would have been saved?

  • ex Kaybecer

    One of the most thoughtful, compassionate, brilliant insights on the subject yet. Than you.

  • Scooper777

    Hey Andra, Wise, for the most part I agree with what you have said, but the people who may need to hear what you have to say may not be spiritually discerning enough to get it because what you are saying is about the things of God and not the things of this world. Most people are only of the things in this world because that’s all they know. Flesh knows only flesh and the spiritually deals in the spiritual realm. People think that we were put on this earth to be completely happy and satisfied only thinking of how we feel and maybe the ones we love. A wake up call is definitely needed..

  • ex Kaybecer

    Since so many here have a different God than you, who tells them something completely different,. you defeat your own argument by using batsh!t crazy logic.

  • TJK

    This is yet another swanky gossip rag.

  • TJK

    Not swanky–SKANKY!

  • KooKKy

    Well, A.Jolie has been known to lie about her relationship in the past, and I think she’s lying now. I think she’d kill him if she found him cheating. Sounds cool, though.

  • ex Kaybecer

    Really? How and whey and when was this?

  • thresa

    If u love someone u do not share them. God would not like it. They will find that out on judgement day. SHAME…….SHAME

  • ex Kaybecer

    So you still believe in God eh? SHAME…SHAME…
