    Could you be happy in a sexless marriage, where you were both in love with each other, didn't care to have sex with each other, but were free to have sex with other men ?

    No, it wouldn't be like being roommates, because you'd be in love with each other.

    I wouldn't see much of a point to that, it would be better to move on. If there was love, you could still be good friends, but marriage would be pointless in that situation.

    I don't understand the premise. Why would we not have sex with each other if we wanted sex with other men?
    Leave off the sex with other men part and my answer would be yes.

    That's what I was thinking too... maybe he's implying that the guy and their sig other are no longer attracted to each other?

    My answer would depend on what constitutes as sex. I could handle not having the actual intercourse part with a guy as long as their was some type of affection. For example, if the guy became impotent, I wouldn't leave him.

    I don't think so! Not only is sex awesome fun, it's a way for me to connect someone on this whole other intimate level.

    Having it with "other men" just seems like a hookup to me. Don't get me wrong, my hookups have been good in the past (except the one time that one guy was into bestiality. I'll have to explain that some other time), but it was just good fun and a not a huge connection.

    Thread title is misleading.

    Sexless marriage? No.

    Sexless open marriage? That could work!

    I would say so; some people could and do (NOT us, lol). Easily done and happily so, for two people in agreement.
    How we love each other and are in love with each other is as varied as the people involved in them.

    Why do you ask, my friend?
