Demi's Bisexual 'Needs' Led to Relationship-Destroying Open Marriage
Gay love: When a husband or wife comes out | Relationships | The Guardian
I provide video individual and couples therapy for those living in California and Colorado. Schedule a free video consult here. We can create relationships that work for us. Along those lines, there is a spectrum from monogamy to ethical non-monogamy open for gay couples to explore. This is a term for couples who are mostly monogamous, except in certain specified instances when they may choose to add partners. This is a type of non-monogamy that describes a non-monogamous relationship that is fair, open and transparent. The term ethical implying the intention is that no one gets hurt.
I wholeheartedly support civil unions for gay and lesbian couples, but I am opposed to same-sex marriage. So be it. I prefer to think of myself as a reasoning, intellectually honest human being. The notion of same-sex marriage is implausible, yet political correctness has made stating the obvious a risky business. Genderless marriage is not marriage at all.
In my counseling practice, I work with many people who have chosen to have open relationships--to have more than one intimate sexual relationship. The biggest obstacle to creating successful and satisfying open relationships is jealousy. Despite how enlightened we think we are, most of us experience jealousy if our spouse or lover has a sexual relationship with someone else. A few rare individuals never experience jealousy. They are either more highly evolved than the rest of us mortals, or else they are pathologically out of touch with their feelings.
