Absolutely not. I have no fundamental objection to polyamorous relationships of any kind, whether legally binding or otherwise.

AMEN Debbie! I have been married 22 years and faithful. I have been through a lot with him. There has been moments I thought he was having an affair because he would leave and I would keep taking him back. Now that I have been through all of this with him my kids r grown and having there own children I want more. I would very much like to have a open marriage BUT I know it could never be!!!! I Love him very much but as a friend after everything.

It’s hard to explain, if you are the type to not understand polyamory. I see nothing inherently “immoral” with Open Marriages, as long as both partners know what the other is doing, for instance, those participating in the Swing Community, where Trust and Sharing and NO DRAMA are the rules.
