When Daniel and Elizabeth married in 1993, they found it was easy enough to choose a ring for her, but there were far fewer choices for him. Daniel, then a 27-year-old who worked in information technology, decided to design one himself, requesting that tiny stones be placed in a gold band, like planets orbiting in a solar system. He was happy with the ring, and what it represented, until it became obvious after the wedding that he was allergic to the nickel that was mixed in with the gold in the band. As if in revolt, his finger grew red and raw, beneath the circle of metal. He started to think of the ring as if it were radioactive, an object burning holes in his flesh. A month into the marriage, he took it off and never got around to replacing it.

Open marriage is an oxymoron.
Hmmmm, if I could clone my hubby, I might consider polyandry :-)
That’s really disgusting ... NY Slimes is actively celebrating perversity.
Does the left ever stop thinking with it’s genitals?
There’s no thinking involved. Just the genitals.
Is not a marriage as much a commitment to God as each other? True intimacy is a gift from heaven and I am not sure how you experience it when you dishonor the commitment you made before the Lord. I mean maybe this works for some people but it doesn’t even process for me. You either have the marriage commitment and keep it intact or what is the point of it? I guess I don’t understand their perspective. I freely admit that I never in my life want to understand their perspective, either.
So the first open-ended wife (can I say that?), Elizabeth, stood up for her right to pursue pleasure.
Oh, what courage. Oh, what a cutting-edge idea. Oh, what a lifestyle trail-blazer she is, determined for the first time in human history "to boldly go where no woman has gone before."
Oh, what a crock.
New York Times is really getting hard up for copy. Wow. New lows in journalism. NO, it will not work, an open marriage.
How funny! Of course not! I really believe an open marriage is the couple stating we really should end our marriage, but are too chicken shiet to face the world. So why not give this a go.
Just the destruction of “marriage” by undermining it in everyway.
Whether polygamy or open marriage or the already approved homosexual marriage, on all fronts until we’re all atomized and alone, interchangeable in relationships but equally dependent on the state.
She said, "Great. I could use some extra help around the house."
Ziiiing! No reply. I know when I've been aced.
LOL! A witty mate and a spouse who appreciates her wit. Good for you both :-)
;-) I married up.
It is every womans fantasy to have three men at the same time. One cleaning the bathroom, one cooking dinner and one weeding the flowerbeds.
Jeez, I'm triplets. No wonder I'm so tired ...
