    I am not married, but I do like swings.

  • No keeping score.  Just keep scoring.

    That's a neat swing set -  I  like how it is timed  so that the people pass  threw the  down pore without getting wet. Cheers and happy weekend!

    I'm not a swinger, it's not for me.  But I know some do, and that's fine if they both want that.

    I *may* have been one..not now. I do support and believe in open marriage/relationships. However, what I do know too is that it doesn't suit everyone. It really only works if all parties are willing and able to be totally honest, transparent. Communication is key, seriously it is - the ones that work are based on trust and totally open communication.

    No, I believe that marriage is a commitment.

  • No...I mean I know someone that is in what is now a successful open marriage.  They were in an open relationship before they even got married.  It's a lifestyle for them.  But the married couples that try to use the open marriage as a form of therapy for the marriage?  Pretty sure the success rates there are next to nothing.  If it was me I'd rather just separate rather than do that.

    No, I'm not a swinger - maybe in my 20s, but certainly not now.  I don't believe in open marriage.  To me, marriage is a commitment to one person.  Why get married if you're going to fool around with Tom, Dick and Harry? This post was edited by SpunkySenior at April 13, 2020 6:37 AM MDT

    Had nothing against Tom - didn't even date anyone by that name.  My apologies.  I will go back and correct  mistake. :)

    No. I kind of get it though. I don't think monogamy suits everyone. My thought pretty much echo what others have said. If it's what both people genuinely want and they're ok with it, so be it. I don't think monogamy is required. I could see how you can still put your partner before all others and support them even if you are with other people. Sort of. 

    It's not for me though. I get attached. I couldn't move between partners like that and I think I'd have a hard time accepting that my partner wanted to.
