Am I being selfish for wanting to have an open relationship with my husband of 15 years?
Hi Double A,
I don’t think that you are being selfish. It appears that you want to get some “fresh air” for better use of terms. Have you discussed this with your husband yet? If not, I would really look into why you really feel this way and make sure this is something that you really want to do. I say this because if you discuss this with your husband and whether he agrees or disagrees it could possibly be detrimental to your marriage. If he gets angry it could cause a strain. Also, it is important to make sure you will be able accept the fact of him being with other women if he chooses to do so. In some instances, the person in the relationship that lobbies for an open relationship winds up getting hurt by it because they get jealous of their mate being with someone else.
Take some time to really consider this before moving forward with it.
