Lucky or not: This Guy Claims His Wife Loves His Sleeping With Other Women!

"'Maybe you need to see other girls...You should be free.' She added
that while she had no interest in sleeping around, if I sowed a few
oats she would turn a blind eye." Hmm...
If this guy's situation sounds like a (male) fantasy to you, you're not the only one. But according to the dude's Details piece,
this sort of mid-Victorian kinda-open relationship is all the rage!
"Call it negotiated wedlock, open fidelity, or monogamy 2.0. Call it
every guy's fantasy. In my case it's a limited pass, authorization to
tomcat without sacrificing my primary saucer of cream."
All the people (all men) quoted in the article say their open relationships have been the best thing that ever happened to their marriage: better
sex, a richer connection, more trust. Although one guy says a girl he
met was "pretty skeeved out" by the idea of sleeping with a married
man, most of those quoted don't seem to have encountered any trouble. A
couple of the cases cited are true open relationships, but in the
others, it's just the man sleeping with other people, and while the
author tries to make it all seem like one phenomenon, it's...not. One
guy who sleeps around but doesn't want his wife to, puts it this way:
"I'm a hypocrite...I admit it. I'm jealous."
And, as the author notes, it takes a "very secure" person to deal
with letting your husband sleep around on you while you stay faithful.
I'll admit right now to not measuring up. Because while true open
relationships are one thing, and polyamory another, the gray area the
author's describing seems....self-serving. And having been on the wrong
end of a relationship that someone else thought was "open," this sort
of thing raises my hackles. At the very least, I'd feel a lot better
about the whole thing if a single one of these wives had actually been
quoted, rather than our being told that it's their privilege to let
their husbands get their manly, bestial urges out of the way while they
wait happily at home. I present the author's conclusion with no comment:
Before my own mild foray to the dark side, my wife and I
had become roommates, business partners, occasionally warring nations.
But, after I fessed up to my outside activities, my wife seemed to see
me in a new light-no longer the beleaguered husband but the swaggering
player. And her incredibly selfless gesture reminded me why I'd fallen
in love with her in the first place. Romance bloomed again...In fact,
it's worked so well that my wife is now joking about playing the field
herself. I will, of course, support her. With one caveat: Please, no

Given the individuality and uniqueness of every person, some things in life have to be unified. White collars are to dress in the classic style to work, while pupils wear school uniform on a daily basis. This allows for consistency and accuracy in their respective institutions just like the formatting does in writing. For clear and digestible expression of ideas, essays follow a certain structure, consist of particular elements, and have a special layout. Read more
