Explain open marriage

I wonder why some people have open marriage. What is the purpose of being married, if they have sex with other people? Isn't it more easy to stay single and just have sex with everybody?

Can somebody explain?

    Being married shows a commitment to one another, sometimes comes with financial benefits like taxes and comes with social privileges like being able to visit your spouse if they are on the ER. There's also the view of marriage in society, so for some couples it's easier to be confirming in some ways regarding their relationship, i. e. getting married, as opposed to practicing total relationship anarchy.

    Those above would be be idealistic reasons, but it's just as likely one or both of the partners want to exercise a bit of control over their spouse by getting married. This control can then be used to deal with their own feelings of jealousy or inadequateness.

    Imagine you, your spouse and another couple go out dancing, and at some point in the evening you switch partners for a dance. Does that threaten your marriage?

    Rightly or wrongly, some people can distinguish in their minds between "loving sex" and "recreational sex," and having a bit of fun (or watching your spouse have a bit of fun) with someone else doesn't feel like cheating.

        A relationship has other benefits like emotional intimacy, shared finances, someone to rely on. People in open relationships want someone to share those perks with while also enjoying sex with other people.

        Use protection or set a standard where you and potential partners get tested first

        My wife likes to frick other girls, so I get to do whatever I want within reason. It's not really an open relationship, we have to ask first and it doesn't come up very often. We aren't just married so we can have sex with each other.

        I could just as easily say why bother being single so you can have sex with everybody, when you can be married and still have sex with everybody?

        >distinguish in their minds between "loving sex" and "recreational sex,"
        I think this is a mistake and one reason open relationships often turn into a mess. If you're fricking someone and you're doing it right, it's going to be somebody you're fond of, and you're sharing something intimate that you do with very few other people. If you start to feel a little love for somebody and this is unexpected and forbidden, you're likely to start worrying something's wrong with your marriage, you're doing something bad, maybe you have to keep your feelings a secret.

        Nah frick that. Accept that when you have sex with somebody there are going to be feelings. That's the main thing sex is for, or we would all stop doing it eventually.

        You project your own preferences onto other people. Just because you can't have sex with other people without catching feelings doesn't mean other people can't.

          Fundamentally most people 90%+ do catch feelings and denying this simple fact means you're projecting your homosexuality openly without saying so. Only homosexuals think like that or you're fricking ugly beasts.

            I'm in a committed relationship with a cute woman. I don't understand why you are so emotional. You're offered an explanation for a phenomenon that you don't understand and instead you throw a fit because you can't fathom that some people, no matter how small this group is, don't operate on the same core values as you do.

            As a man online, I can honestly say I'm not attractive enough and neither are most men. Therefore your post only applies to homosexuals and chads who don't come here.

            You don't have to be a chad to hook up with or land a hot woman. If you have bought into the "you have to be a 6'4" millionaire with a 8" dick and chiseled jawline to score" then you have given yourself black pill brain rot. If you're a pretty normal guy who makes some effort to take care of your appearance then you can get surprisingly far with just your personality.

            I said if you're doing it right. One night stands aren't doing it right. Not the worst thing in the world either but I would rather be with someone who I am very fond of or at least hit it off with. It's also much safer to build up some trust first. Hooking up as a married person is a bigger responsibility. If you get too drunk / condom breaks and you creampie her, or you are roofied or rolled or murdered, you're not necessarily the main victim.

            So you agree that those are your preferences and how you'd react to the situation and that there are other people that could have other preferences? Open relationship doesn't necessarily mean carte blanche to frick whoever whenever, you can have rules that determine who gets to do what with who. I don't think the minority of people who are in successful open relationships even have a ton of one night stands, the best setup is probably having a few FWBs.

            Agree. Men who don't feel disgust by being cucked by other men are bisexuals. They don't feel disgust against other men.

      That’s not cheating. Is this supposed to imply something else?

        His point is that some people view casual sex as something as simple as dancing. Most people would not be upset with their partner dancing with someone else, but they would be upset if they had sex with someone else. A few people wouldn't be anymore upset with their partner if they slept with someone else as if they danced with someone else.

    Marriage was made some men could have access to sex and reproduction. In turn, women would receive safety and financial stability.

    Nowadays things are different. Women don't need men to provide safety and money to them, the government already does that.

    Men still marry to have access to sex and reproduction. But now, women marry for social status and to conform to social expectations.

    That's why you get so many divorces nowadays. Marriage is a failed institution, there's no reason for people to marry anymore. It's pointless. All you get out of it is an expensive ceremony to pay and some pictures.

      actually the government is the failed institution. it's deliberately working towards the destruction of the people it's supposed to serve.

    Ive known a few polyamorous people and tldr, autism. Theyre always autistic. Same as trans people.
    Theyre people with stunted social development and total lack of sense of boundaries and they made it work for them. You dont gave to understand them, justify them, condemn them, anything. Just leave it alone.

      Well, yes. I presume open marriage people are not mentally sane. The men must be bisexual, if they don't feel disgust.

        Disgust at what exactly? You're not necessarily going to watch, are you? I'm not. That is why some couples don't share this kind of information. If my wife goes home with another girl I don't know for sure if there's a boyfriend around. She would probably tell me but I stopped asking. She never asks me who I am with, and I know she is very serious about safety, so I don't feel like policing her is going to do anything but spoil a nice evening when she probably isn't doing anything wrong. If she asks me outright for permission to be with another guy I will probably ask her to promise he's not ugly or old. Does that make me bisexual? I don't want her banging ugly old women either.

    they're mentally ill.
    Normal people start frothing at the mouth at the mere thought of their partner with another person, and emotionally stunted people start rampages after being cheated on.
    Humans are territorial by nature, their lack of boundaries more than likely stems from deep seated childhood trauma, be it sexual or domestic.
    Nudists are fricking weird too, I get the exhibitionist lifestyle, but many of them raise their children the same way.
