My Wife Dates Other Men: The New Age of Open Relationships

For years, monogamy was considered the only acceptable form of romantic relationships. However, with the rise of open relationships and non-monogamous lifestyles, couples are beginning to explore new avenues for intimacy and exploration. One such avenue is that of opening up their relationship to allow for dating other people outside of their primary partnership.

If you’re intrigued by this concept but still have reservations about taking the leap into an open relationship, fear not! In this article, we’ll explore what it means for a married woman to date other men in an open relationship dynamic.

So What Exactly Is An Open Relationship?

Before diving into the specifics of my wife’s experience with dating other men while married to me, let’s first discuss what exactly constitutes an open relationship.

In short, an open relationship is any type of consensual and ethical non-monogamy between partners who communicate openly about their extracurricular activities (while using fun-sounding code words like “extracurricular activities,” which make it sound like we’re all trying out for different clubs at school).

While this may seem foreign or even taboo to some individuals living in society where monogamy reigns supreme (not judging you because I’m one), rest assured that there truly is no right or wrong way when it comes to navigating love/sex among consenting adults.

And now onto how my wife has opened up our marriage through dating multiple men!

My Wife’s Journey Towards Dating Other Men

It all began innocently enough – my wife confessed one evening she felt a strong urge to scratch away from traditional ideas around sex and romance centralizing on exclusivity; whether they were rampant jealousy- as impressive’as Cirque De Soleil-‘ish turf war fights over having proper claims including flaming talks(or more politely known DTR) leading her to want further to explore her sexuality and seek friendship with other men while we continue being married. This woke up the inquisitive detective in me, so I asked a series of questions to gauge whether or not she had fully thought this thru.

An Open Relationship Requires Communication

In order for my wife’s journey into dating other men to be successful, communication was paramount. We sat down (without having vaped) and talked about our expectations, boundaries & concerns regarding this new dynamic!

As you can imagine, there were many questions that needed answering! Some examples included things like:

  • How often would she be meeting with these other men?
  • Would there be any issues around jealousy?
  • What are some basic rules for safe sex which we must follow?

Through it all though,we kept ploughing ahead armed with open-mindedness as well as pack loads of honesty; something that might prove difficult if we’re doing teams sports like baseball due to ‘pitcher-catcher’ situation but funny enough helped us navigate those uncharted waters of non-monogamous explorations seamlessly.
