For most people, the thought of their partner pursuing other relationships is enough to drive them crazy.
But that’s exactly what made a couple’s marriage so strong over the course of 12 years, according to one woman.
The woman who posted to the TikTok account @openlycomiledgave some insight into her open marriage.
She said she has been in an open relationship with her current husband for 12 years.
They were married to eight of them, and together they had two children, a house, and a dog.
The woman said the non-monogamous relationship is what makes their marriage still so interesting.
“Opening up is probably the most fun aspect of our lives,” she says.
“Even though we’re parents, we still date and have crazy adventures outside of our relationship and come back and share them with each other.”
In one video, she explains that she and her husband are in a “hierarchical relationship”, meaning they are each other’s primary partners.
She added that her husband has a girlfriend that he has been dating for a while, while she is currently not dating anyone, but is very public.
BUT WHAT ABOUT JEALOUSY?
In another video, the woman said the most common question people ask her is if she’s jealous, to which she replies: “Of course I’m jealous, I’m human.”
However, she explained that it was not about her husband’s jealousy of another woman but about the time they spent together.
“He’s going to go on vacation with her to Napa and go for a wine tasting.
“It’s not that he and I don’t do those things, it’s that when he does it with her, they don’t think about the kids, or the house, the taxes, the finances, or any of that. there.
“It was like a mental holiday that in a lot of ways I couldn’t give him, but she could, which is amazing but I’m still a bit jealous,” she explained.
The woman had a lot of people commenting on their opinions and some questions, like one who wrote: “So what’s the point of getting married?”
She replied: “For me, I love to be married. He is my best friend, life partner, father and we built a life together but he is only partially responsive. hundred of my needs. And that’s okay.”
Also, another asked: “Dating is hard enough when you’re single, why would you want to do it when you’re married?”
“Dating while married has lower stakes. But the first ‘hey, I’m married’ text/conversation before dating can be awkward,” the woman replied.
Meanwhile, a couple’s public relationship was awkwardly exposed when an image of a husband kissing another woman appeared in a slideshow.
