My husband wants an open marriage
My husband and I have been married for 20 years and he just told me a few days ago that he wants an open marriage. Apparently he has felt this way for many many years but has never said anything because he knew it would hurt me. I am I firm believer in monogamy and do not know what to do. He is not pushing me to do this, but was expressing his feelings to me. He does not want to do anything I am uncomfortable with. He loves me and still wants to be married. I am afraid now that I know this is what he really wants that our relationship will never be the same. I am sad all the time. I love him very much and do not want to be divorced from him. I don’t know if I can be happy knowing that I can never be enough for him.
Has anyone else experienced anything like this or have any advice for me? I should also mention that we have four children and I desperately want them to be raised with both parents. I really want to make this work if at all possible.
Thanks for reading.
An open marriage is something that both partners have to be on board with agree upon and have set strict ground rules.
If he knows that you're uncomfortable with an open marriage then maybe you should have a more in depth discussion if you think there are trust issues.
There are a number of reasons as to why one partner or the other want an open marriage which I'm not sure if should really go into here.
Do some research there's alot to about the subject. :-)
