    A Way To Declare Your Open Relationship To Each Other And To Others

    My open marriage (to my wife of 32 years) is based on our mutual understanding that sexual monogamy is just a way of taking control of each other's bodies. We agree that that is so wrong! Without such a mutual understanding, the psychological toll of an open relationship might be...
