Oh shut up.
Tobias: “You know, Lindsay, as a therapist, I have advised a number of couples to explore an open relationship where-where the couple remains emotionally committed but free to explore extramarital… encounters.”
Lindsay: “Did it work for those people?”
Tobias: “No. It never does. These people somehow delude themselves into thinking it might, but– but it might work for us.." **from the fail blog website**
It is always so easy to blame being in an open relationship for a relationship failing. But you know what the only common denominator in all of your failed relationships is? YOU. Stop trying to place blame on outside forces and other people and deal with your own issues.
Also? Monogamous relationships fail all the time too. Why is it that when someone changes their asinine FB relationship status from "In a Relationship" to "Single" no one says anything about how being monogamous caused the relationship to fail? Quit being so biased against relationships that don't fit into the pre-programmed ideals that society and your parents have fed you. Just because it doesn't work for you doesn't mean it doesn't work for anyone else.
