    Even though I previously stated that I was fine with an open relationship, I don't think I would accept an open marriage.

    However, this 'open' thing seems to have certain degrees of 'openness'. What is an open relationship for some folks seems to be unacceptable for me. Just to make things more clear, maybe I was misunderstood.

    I see open relationships/marriages as signs of a degenerate culture. It's either for people who aren't serious about their relationship and don't respect their partner or for sexual deviants (when one ofthe partners is asexuals, for example).

    I don't understand how a monogamous marriage can be anything other than that. If couples want to play the polyamory game, then don't get married.

    Exactly why my guy didn't want to marry. To play the polyamory game. Which didn't really happen, but anyway. He didn't want to marry exactly for that reason.

    The result? I really want to get married, to avoid anything like that. Enough thrills, I want a more stable relationship. If I'm choosing a man, I'm doing it for some reasons, and I'm quite picky. I wasted enough time of my life for experiments...

    Most open marriages I've known of ended up failing. Our culture has been monogamous for a very long time, and most of us are conditioned that way. I would not like the idea of sharing my wife with another, nor would I like to be shared myself.

    Saw the title. Only one word came to mind;

    No.

    To elaboate, this is a symbol of degeneracy. It is a terrible idea, that never ends well for anyone involved.

    Traditionally in Germanic societies, rich and powerful men could have multiple wives/lovers. But I don't think it's very viable in the modern world.

    If a man is really worth it, I don't mind sharing it with another woman, to be honest. Good men are quite rare these days (and so are good women). I did that once in the past, and it was nice. Actually I even fell in love with his other girlfriend, who was the official one (I was unofficial). But it was one of those teenager's relationships, he was very undecided and he had many girlfriends, I was even asking him a few times to behave nicer with the girlfriend I was in love with. So I think it would be possible in the modern world, too, but it's not for everyone. It's quite rare, I think, to really work properly.

    I wonder if there were any situations in the Germanic societies of women having multiple husbands/lovers, as in some other traditional societies this happened.

    By the way, I asked some men recently what they think about this issue, about having multiple wives, and they were kidding saying that it's difficult enough with only one wife, they don't even think of having one more! I guess there are some men who wish or who wished to have more than one, but when they see how difficult is to handle just one relationship properly... having two just runs out of their minds!
