My husband and I were having marital issues and most importantly sex and infidelity. We decided to have an open relationship for a whole year and tell each other whom we were seeing. At first, everything seemed fine. The open relationship plan was working and we wouldn’t have to worry about cheating on each other.
At some point, we decided to engage in threesomes in the name of exploring our marriage before we were too old. All this brought my husband and me closer and I was happy that infidelity issues had stopped. I did not have to worry about where he was or what he was doing.
After one year, we decided to end the open relationship plan and I thought that everything was going to be normal. My husband was no longer interested in me. We did not have sex at all and this was killing me.
After few weeks I asked him if we could go to a marriage counsellor but he shut me down. He told me that he had met someone new during the open relationship period and that he was planning to move in with the woman.
At first I thought he was joking just to get my attention but it was not the case. He had fallen in love with another woman and it was my entire fault. He even had the audacity to introduce me to the woman and to tell me that he was going to marry her.
We got divorced a month later and I blame myself for ruining my marriage. It really hurts because all I wanted was to bring my husband closer but instead, I pushed him to another woman.
I have heard a lot of people say that they want to have an open relationship with their spouses and that is something I would not recommend. Ladies make sure you don’t push your spouse away in the name of trying to please him. My marriage was ruined because of an open relationship plan and so will your relationship.
