    I don't really consider morals so much as the emotional stability of all parties involved. I've never been in an open relationship (though someone forgot to tell my kids father that!!!!!), but I know people that have. I'm not against them though. If they work for others, fine. I've know people that I wouldn't mind sleeping with, without getting emotionally involved with, but they would want that emotional involvement, so I never acted on it.

    Would depend on the couple, Their cicumstances and morals and values.

    Before saying it's so wrong I think of the couple where they are mature and maybe one has a condition where they cant do it anymore and out of love for the other and inability to perform wants the other to have a sex life outside of them so that they are not frustrated.

    ( There are many situations that I myself have not been in - So I don't judge others.)

    I was in an open relationship.... its fine if you can handle that kind of thing but its not for everyone.
    If you want a future with someone, its not a good idea.. but its no ones right to say whether its morally acceptable or not

    I feel that if a couple is into that it is fine, though I think it would usually cause problems. I don't think that I could ever do it. I don't mind girls flirting with my boyfriend but if I'm not enough for him then we no longer need to be a couple.

    There are pros and cons to it. In the end it depends on the person, whether they're the jealous type or not, how high their self esteem is, how much attention they need from a partner, and how the relationship is constructed, full disclosure, only together, etc...
    I've never understood the value of monogamy, and would probably be in an open relationship or commune had I not fallen in love with a man who does value monogamy. We've been very happy for 8 years now, it doesn't feel like a sacrifice at all, he's all I need! :)

    If I were a shallow, 25 year old, I'd be all for it.
    Now at over twice that age... I'm closed to open relationships... plus I've got such a wonderful relationship with my wife... focusing your passion on one person is hot...
    Even for an older guy.

    Since about 60% of married couples have sex with someone other than their partner it is almost a moot issue. Notice I said "almost", the problem comes when someone thinks they OWN their partner.

    It's just F**king around. and no commitment. VChildren hate this and suffer aboyut it ell into their own old age and are more likely unable to have very stabl;e relationships of their own. Their hwhole lives like theirParents who have destroyed two or more generations lives because they just had to have a =n Open relationship...... If I've made you guilty about this GOOD! I vote for the lives of the Children.

    if it is morally acceptable then let everybody be with everybody, if we keep going this way in some years the question will be ''is it morally acceptable to sleep with your brother/sister? and 47% wont know the answer

    It's not a moral matter. It's a choice, an agreement between two (or more) people and not an issue of right and wrong.

    It depends entirely on the couple. That and to have an open relationship you have to have complete trust and open communication between everybody. That is the only way to make it work. The common thought though is that there is a difference between sex and intimacy, and with that I agree.

    Seriously as long as the people involved in the relationship are consenting, legal participants who am I to judge? It's not for me. I am a one man woman and my husband is a one woman man and that is the way I want it. But everyone else... Go for it, be happy and enjoy your life your way.

    I wouldn't say it's morally wrong if both people agree to it, but it does seem pretty stupid to me to even be in a relationship if you're just going to sleep with a bunch of other people. People who want to do that should just stay single.

    For people with morals its wrong . If you do not have any morals about your sexual addictions and you hang around with a bunch of sluts then its morally acceptable in your world as you see it .

    Not in cheating, but I am a flirt and I would hope that a woman would come along and allow me to do so as I would never cross a certain line and cheat. Also she would reap the benefits of me being "excited". hehe!
    Too often though, jealously rears it's ugly head.
