My Husband’s Double Standards in our Open Marriage

When my husband and I decided to explore an open marriage, we believed it was important to establish clear rules and boundaries that we both agreed upon before we started seeing other people. However, the story I’m about to share reveals just how unfair my husband was when it came to our arrangement.

You see, for quite some time, my husband dated other people while we were in an open marriage. And I was completely okay with that. But when I decided to meet other partners, he suddenly changed the rules on me.

Naturally, I was taken aback by this sudden shift. So, I shared my story online and received an outpouring of responses. Many people sympathized with my situation and offered advice on what I should do next.

Some believed that my husband’s double standards were reason enough for me to consider divorce. After all, he wasn’t treating me with the respect and loyalty that I deserved, even though he was the one who proposed the idea of an open marriage in the first place.

Instead of embracing the true essence of an “open marriage,” my husband saw it as an opportunity to date other women without any guilt. Had he truly understood the concept, he would have been accepting of the fact that I also wanted to meet someone I was happy with. But unfortunately, he didn’t respect my needs and broke his promise to date other women while continuing to do so himself. It became clear to many that he was being unfaithful.

Some advised me to prioritize my own needs and take the time to understand what truly makes me happy. It’s crucial for all women, not just me, to realize that we deserve someone who will treat us with respect and honesty.

If sharing my concerns with family and friends doesn’t help, seeking professional guidance or a marriage counselor may be a wise choice. Marriage is a complex union that requires understanding and appreciation from both partners.

So, what are your thoughts on this matter? Have you ever considered an open marriage? Share this article with your family and friends on Facebook and let’s spark a conversation about this important topic.
