What are your views on open marriage?
Polyamory (from Greek πολύ [poly, meaning many or several] and Latin amor [love]) is the practice, desire, or acceptance of having more than one intimate relationship at a time with the knowledge and consent of everyone involved. If this is what you mean by an open marriage then I believe that it is quite possible to have a happy open marriage. The key to this relationship is really no different then any other relationship. Open clear communication with one another regarding our ongoing individual desires within our relationship is the most important conversation that we can have with our partners. What I find quite often is that couples will think about their individual needs within the context of their martial relationships, and do everything possible to avoid having the conversation about them, with their partner. When an open marriage does not work is after the fact; once one of the partners has acted upon this before having a conversation with their partner. Trust is broken and what I have found is that couples have a very difficult time moving forward and dialoging openly about anything as now the main theme in the relationship is broken trust and heartbreak. My view on this, as with any type of relationship is that when we can become honest with ourselves first and then, when it feels right, step into our honesty feeling inspired; this will then allow us to share our feelings with our partners, before we act upon them
