An Open Marriage

by agoodnow

I was sitting in a bar the other night and the guy next to me started talking to me.  He seemed nice enough.  He was talking about how he had just left his “lover’s” place.  A female lover.  He lived over on the west side…..with his wife.  Apparently he was in an “open marriage”  Yeah………..I have some thoughts on this:

1. What the fuck is that all about? 

2. What’s the point of getting married if you are going to openly fuck other people.

3. How can you possibly not get jealous? How?  No really let’s think about this:

“Hi honey, how was your day?”

“Not bad.  You know the usual.”

“Oh, so you fucked some guy after perform various oral acts on him.”


“Oh good, can you do me a favor and go grab some mouthwash?  That would be great.”

4. Disease?

5. What if you come home with marks on your body?

6. I would hate to be in a marriage where you have “sex rules with other people” posted on the fridge.

Maybe it works for them.  Maybe they know something I don’t.  Maybe they are truly happy with their arrangement.  Who knows.  I just know that if/when I get married I would prefer not to share my wife.  And further, I would prefer for my wife to NOT WANT TO BE SHARED.   Call me selfish.
