  • Homosexuals Embrace Adultery...

    No surprised...

    A new Pew Research Center survey about Americans’ views on open marriages shows that 75% of gay, lesbian, and bisexual Americans find open marriages “acceptable.”

    The finding starkly contrasts with straights — who oppose the concept by a 54% to 29% margin — and Americans overall, with only 33% of American adults finding the concept acceptable to some degree and 50% saying such relationships are unacceptable.

    I know you and I are going to disagree on this Seer, given I have a pretty good idea of what you think Adultery is, however, for most people, adultery is commonly seen among the populace as cheating on your spouse. An "open marriage" wouldn't be cheating, as they essentially have permission.

    I have no doubt that those of 'alternative' sexual lifestyles, support a different sexual lifestyle. However, I would be very curious what their view of cheating is, as that is distinct from open marriage.

      Am I the only one who's a bit surprised to find that a third of our population thinks adultery is okay?

      I'm always still in trouble again

        I don't know:

        Merriam-Webster


        adultery

        noun

        voluntary sexual intercourse between a married person and someone other than that person's current spouse or partner

          We can thank the sexual revolution...

            And that generally works on the underlying assumption of monogamy. (Honestly, something that until a few years ago, was a pretty solid assumption of what a marriage/partner was).

              While most people will probably say that adultery is not OK, it happens so often that I think they "think it is wrong" but do it anyway. Like any other sin.

              And I am talking about straight, gay, etc.

              Straight couples have been cheating forever.

                That certainly didn't help, but people have been cheating on their spouses since there have been people.

                Open marriages, where they knowingly commit adultery with their spouses permission, seems to have started in the 60's with the sexual revolution.

                I guess if you believe in having sex with anyone before marrying them, it is not a big step to continue doing that after being married.

                  I would agree in that an "open marriage" precludes adultery, at least in theory.

                    To me, the biggest issue with cheating is the betrayal of trust. If you have a true open marriage (and by that I mean a situation where both spouses are actually cool with the situation, and not feeling coerced into accepting it from one partner) then to me, I don't see the issue. Though, I recognize the risk that over-time either one of the spouses might actually decide that the situation really isn't for them, and end up getting emotionally hurt in the situation. It's definitely NOT something I would be comfortable with.

                      To me the whole point of marriage is to forsake all others for the one you love. To dedicate your lives to caring for each other. If you want an "open" marriage, then just don't get married at all. You can draw up a contract doing anything legally that a marriage would accomplish (sharing assets, etc)

                        Robert A. Heinlein was in an open marriage in the 30's and 40's.

                          I don't really disagree with you on that thought. But, at the same time, how a married couple willingly chooses to behave within their marriage really is their business.

                            Really? I thought he didn't go all liberal hippy until the 70s? Used to read his books up to that era. Then it was all sexual immorality.

                              If they kept it there then sure. But they don't. That's the point. They not only encourage others to participate in their debauchery, but claim it is just fine. Also third parties get hurt in such affairs. They have to have affairs with someone other than their husband/wife.
