I find myself getting irritated at the posts about opening up a marriage. It seems wildly dishonest to me to enter into a monogamous relationship, sign a contract saying you'll do that forever, co-mingle your lives in a way that makes it very difficult to extricate yourself, and then tell your spouse you want to change the rules.
Are these people really blindsided by their desire not to be monogamous? It never occurred to them before they got married? It seems more likely to me they always had a hunch, and didn't bring it up until all the contract signing was done so their spouse was more likely to try to put up with it.
Ok, that's all my judging. Tell me I'm wrong! Tell me your stories!
1. There is something missing in my life.
2. There is no reason to dump my partner in life with whom I match on so many levels, with whom I have shared so much, and to whom I feel responsible.
3. Maybe I could search of the missing thing without dumping my partner and while we continue keeping each other happy.
P.S. This is the answer to the original question, before amendments, clarifications, and so on.
