Benefits of Open Marriage

Open marriage is different from other types of marriage since it encourages polygamy by both parties. Similar to closed marriage, open marriage also provides several benefits. Here is a close look at major benefits of open marriage

1. Offers adventure

An open marriage is the best option since couples are never going to become bored of each other. People in this kind of marriage are able to delight in lots of freedom and space. A person can have other partners and still return to their spouse. It also lowers risk of getting a divorce since both people are happy.

2. Promotes honesty

The most surprising open marriage benefit is the fact that it could possibly bring a couple closer together, especially if handled lovingly and gently. If you are secretly engaging in an affair and you cannot share that information with your spouse, you will feel lonely due to lack of decency. However, in an open marriage, there is mutual respect for both partners and therefore it encourages honesty.

3. Strengthens bonds

If you are in an open marriage, you are free to engage in other relationships. Aside from that, you are also provided the chance of selecting your spouse frequently based on your true desire, instead of guilt, duty or obligation. Through opening up the marriage, a partner can find himself or herself opting to only be with their spouse. Actually, open marriage assists in strengthening the bonds that exists between couples.

4. Improves sex life

The obvious open marriage advantage is that it improves the sex life of the couple. After delighting in the company of other women or men, you could possibly discover that you have developed a much greater gratitude for your spouse.

A drawback of open marriage is that partners can easily get jealous of one another and this might even result in divorce.

If an "open marriage" has such benefits and few drawbacks (like a costly divorce), why would anyone want to get married in the first place? It doesn't make sense.

Many people like to think that they are free thinkers, but most are not. This is your chance. You don’t have to have an open marriage, but at least take some time to consider it.
There are no invisible shackles. There are no invisible walls. You won’t feel trapped, because in an Open Marriage you maintain your freedom and discard your jealousy, not the other way around.

Open marriages is a concept that Western culture just will not accept, it is immoral and leads to too many problems, jealousy, violence, break ups and divorce, not to mention the increased risk of STDs.
Its like communism, on paper it sounds like a perfect solution to society problems. in practice it does not work.

what do you mean by immoral ? please explain...

Wed, June 6th, 2018 10:42pm


Immoral = not conforming to acceptable standards of morality laid down by society, religion, etc.

to act in a way that is morally unacceptable by your peers and culture.

I may not be a religious person or follow any religious path, but I was brought up by parents who instilled in me a sense of moral ethics, actions and codes in which to live by which is acceptable by your society, friends and culture.

Open marriages do not sit well with my moral compass.
If you go into a marriage, then you are giving yourself, body and soul to your partner, to share everything with them, and be faithful to them only.

Two is company, three is definitely a crowd.

I agree with Barry Foster, if you want to have more then one sexual partner then do not get married! its as simple as that.
It is a Western religious thing, Christianity, Catholicism, Protestantism.
Personally it is not for me.

Hope that shines some clarity on you question.
Best Wishes.

may be it is not fit in your moral compass...i don't know what is your moral compass...but i think open marriage has large amount of benefits a person gains then the closed marriage...
and by the way what you said about western morality and ethics.....
i think there is no morality and ethics in the western culture as all porn websites are originated from western countries which destroys our youth......

Best Wishes,,,,,,

you cannot judge a whole nation of people just because of porn sites on the internet.
that is being very short sighted and absurd.
what is worse or more immoral? looking at porn or sleeping with multiple partners when you are married?
Not everyone watches porn, just because it is there .
I am certainly not interested in watching it.
I have one wife and desire no other woman than her. she is my soul partner and the only other woman I would ever want to be with.
When you find the right one why would you want to look for another?
Porn is like everything else in the world, it is a commodity, which makes money for its producers.
there are so many things in this world that could influence our children, guns, murder, violence, etc etc.
Personally I find that at the root of most violence and destruction in this world you will find religion!
why don't we just ban that old archaic idea and perhaps we would all get on better.
Think about that one.

a man without practicing any religion is just like a car without a driver or a computer without windows installed in it....religion give the path to a person and a way of living....
(1) Religion explains individual suffering
Man does not live by knowledge alone. He is an emotional creature. Religion serves to the emotions of man in times of his sufferings and disappointment. On God religion puts faith and entertains the belief that some unseen power moves in mysterious ways to make even his loss meaningful. In this way religion gives release from sorrow and release from fear. It helps man to bear his frustration and integrate his personality.

(2) Religion enhances self-importance
Religion expands one's self to infinite proportions. Man unites himself with the Infinite and feels ennobled. Society also gains from the self-flattery provided by religious belief. Religion assures a greater reward in the afterlife to worldly failures than to successful life. Such kind of assurance encourages members to continue to play their part in society.

(3) Religion comes as a source of social cohesion
Religion is the ultimate source of social cohesion. The primary requirement of society is the possession of social values by which individuals control the action of self and others and through which society is perpetuated. Science and technology cannot create this value. Religion is the foundation upon which these values rest. Children should obey their parents, should not tell lie, women should be faithful to men, people should be honest and Virtuous, are some of the social values which maintain social cohesion.

(4) Religion encourages social welfare
Religion has also performed some other services to humanity like the provision of work, the priesthood often dedicated to art and culture. The priesthood lays the foundation of medicine. It also fulfils the functions of scholars and scientists. Religion has served humanity through spreading of education and also creating the habit of charity among the people who open many charitable institutions like hospitals, rest houses, temples and to help the poor.

(5) Religion is the agency of social control
Religion provides a model for living. It upholds certain ideals and values. The believer imbibes these ideals and values in his life. Religion can help youth generation to become moral, disciplined and socialized citizens of society.

(6) Religion controls economic life
Max Weber was of the view that religion also controls the economic life. To Weber, capitalism grew in the Protestant nations like England, U.S.A. It did not grow in Italy and Spain where the people are Catholic. The Hindus lay great stress on spiritual progress than on material progress. Hence, materialism could not grow in India.

Thus, from the discussion we know that religion is the central element in the life of civilization. Throughout the ages it is a proof of its values. It has been the propagator of basic values and ethical code which provide cohesion to society and integration to personality. If one looks dispassionately into the charges against religion and admits all of them, in the end, he is constrained to believe that the article was worth the cost.

Religion is not for everyone, Muhammad my friend.

I get along fine in my life without believing in any god in any shape or form.
It may not be for everyone, but its works well for me.

I have enjoyed our little theological discussions and I respect your own personal beliefs.
but it is time to draw a line underneath this topic.
I wish you well in the future.

Best wishes.
