What do you think about open relationships/marriages???
The comedian Mo'nique was quoted recently saying if her husband stepped outside of their marriage for sex "cheating" so to speak, she would not be upset with him, and that, in so many words, she knows her place with him and wouldn't be threatened by such a decision. While, I am not sure of the accuracy of such statements, it has also been said that Will & Jada Smith's marriage is also what would be considered an open-relationship. They are allowed to step outside of each other for sexual purposes if the other one is not available for said activity.
Would you consider this kind of relationship???
My first thoughts were "why would you want to share", "who on Earth would want to do that and why get married if that is the case." While, I still feel like that, my next thought was "well, it's working for these couples."
In the months after the whole HOOPLA over Tiger Woods and his affairs, I would like to get some idea about what the public feels on this topic. Tiger's dad was quoted, before his death, as saying something along the lines of he told Tiger that monogamy & marriage in a mobile society much like ours is unnecessary. I was surprised that a father would tell his son something like that but IS HE RIGHT??
Is marriage/monogamy unnecessary in today's society??
The purpose of marriage is for two people to join in matrimony (holy & unholy in todays world) for the rest of their lives devoted to each other; love, honoring and obeying each other. So, before we frown on said couple's decision to partake in open marriages/relationships.....is there really anything wrong with it if there is a conscious choice between both parties to participate in an open relationship?? COULD IT BE THE SECRET TO EVER LASTING LOVE????
