Marriage Without Monogamy
Open marriages could be the secret to success for many gay couples. A recent study conducted by San Francisco State University uncovered that having sex outside of marriage, with approving consent from a partner, is more common than previously believe...like 50% more common. A different study found that these marriages actually last longer than the traditional monogamous relationship. This isn't news to the gay community, who believe that the transparency makes their bond stronger. And as the conventional American marriage proves unsatisfying, many heterosexual couples are making their own rules as well, where honesty allows for polyamory.
