A new book was just released entitled Open: Love, Sex and Life in an Open Marriage by Jenny Block. Block, a suburban wife and mother, talks about her own life in an open marriage, addresses the stigmas attached to the concept and challenges long-held beliefs around the virtues of monogamy.
I've not yet publicly discussed my views on the subject, but have written and thought much about this. I'm not sold on the whole monogamy thing. It doesn't sit right with me. While it may work for others, I don't see it as fulfilling my great capacity for love and relationship. I've been perusing Block's book and find my soul nodding along with many of her thoughts. Regardless of your views on the subject, it's a fascinating and challenging look at what relationship means.
