Do "Open" Relationships Save Marriages?

Would you feel better knowing your man wanted to have sex with another woman and asked you if he could....or would you rather he cheated and slept with her behind your back?

"Neither" isn't an option, so think about it "openly" before you decide.

Many celebrity couples including Will & Jada Pinkett-Smith, Brad Pitt & Angelina Jolie and comedian Mo'Nique & Sidney believe their "open" relationship keeps their marriage alive.

All parties suggest that it's natural to be sexually attracted to others, but as long as you ask for permission before touching... then it's okay. Would this lifestyle work for you?

Being that most divorce cases involve infidelity, the idea of an "open" relationship kind of makes since...especially in Hollywood. But does this lifestyle fit the ordinary couple?

Most would say no...especially men. I don't think there's a man in the world that be comfortable with his wife sleeping with another man...even if it meant "saving" their marriage.

Women on the other hand are probably more likely to submit. The confirmation of the inevitable, and knowing before it happens, gives women a since of trust, and presidence over the situation in "understanding" her spouse and his needs.

On the flip side...this could take away the excitement of cheating. If you you told your man that he was free to chase and hunt as he pleased...would that kill his fire...or add fuel to the flame?
