The concept of polygamy existed since time immemorial, but society accepted monogamy as a form of bond that it considered desirable, acceptable and ‘normal’.
However, there are still those for whom monogamy is far from perfect.
Whoever talks about this topic almost always emphasizes the same things. The difference between a polygamous relationship and cheating in a monogamous one is that in this first partners are honest with each other about their desires and they work together on a solution that will both satisfy and respect the needs of both partners. The most magical part is the freedom that comes with having a relationship with the person you have. Here are some celebrities that prefer open relationships.
Jada Pinkett Smith and Will Smith
Jada Pinkett and her husband Will Smith have been avoiding rumors of a ‘ swinger’ lifestyle for years, and the first time Jada spoke openly about their relationship was in 2013.
“Here’s the thing – you have to trust the person you’re in a relationship with,” she said. ‘And at the end of the day, I’m not here to watch anyone. I’m not here to watch Will. He is a grown man. But what I believe is that a man like Will is a man of integrity. He has all the freedom in the world. And as long as he can look in the mirror and be good, I’m fine too. “
Will also commented on their relationship: “Our perspective is that you should not avoid what is natural ,” he told the Daily Mail in 2005. “You will be attracted to various people. In our marriage vows we did not say to renounce all others. The vow we made was that we would never give rise to stories that someone had done something. If that were to happen, then we would have the right to say one thing to another: ‘Look, I want to sleep with someone. I won’t if you don’t approve , but please approve. ‘
If there’s anyone whose advice is worth listening to, it’s Dolly Parton who has been married to her husband Carl Dean for over 50 years. “It’s our policy – don’t ask, don’t talk, with the agreement that it’s something we both agreed to. If we cheat, we don’t know about it so if we cheat, it’s something that’s good for both of us. I don’t want to know if he’s cheating on me. I also know that he wouldn’t want to know if I‘m cheating on him. And if we’re cheating, and if that’s why the relationship survives, then that’s fine.“
Although Angelina did not go into detail about what was wrong and what was not in the marriage between her and Brad Pitt, she repeatedly hinted that fidelity was not one of the most important components for her. “I doubt that fidelity is absolutely necessary for a relationship. It’s worse to leave a partner and then talk bad about him. Neither Brad nor I ever argued that living together means being chained . We make sure we never limit each other. In the end, it all comes down to showing respect between the two partners .” she said.
Son Caitlyn Jenner talked about his marriage to Kaitlynn Carter while their marital happiness was still going on. Specifically, he spoke of their habit of sharing a double bed with another woman: ‘We are not against anyone else joining our sex attacks,’ he said. ‘Many people are nervous about opening up this topic, but I really believe there are a lot more people much more open than you think. When I started the conversation, Kaitlynn said, ‘Actually, I don’t mind at all.’ So I was very excited about it. ‘
