Open Marriage

Oops, silly me! I do apologize for believing 
most of my adult life that marriage is... 
a sacred union of two souls. That it's between...
two people. Just two!

Is there a bigger insult to the institution? 
If one exists, could someone please enlighten me?
What's the point of marrying someone 
you don't want to fully commit to? 

It couldn't be more peculiar. An open marriage
is not a marriage. It's an excuse to continue...
sowing wild oats. An excuse for commitment-phobes
to keep playing the field, to keep bed-hopping 

Why would any self-respecting individual stay
in such marriage? If it can be called a "marriage" 
To call a spade a spade, it's more like...
Open adultery!

Thank you, Darlene:-) I wholeheartedly agree with you. If it's bad, simply get a divorce!
