What are the boundaries of an open up marriage? And what are the boundaries of an open up relationship when your wife’s boyfriend has an incident that puts him in a coma? Do you introduce by yourself to the healthcare facility workers as the patient’s girlfriend’s spouse?
Wayne Scott and his spouse, Elizabeth, have a “creative arrangement,” as Wayne places it in his Present day Appreciate essay. They share the little ones, the cats and the home loan, but they have authorization to see other people romantically.
On today’s episode, we listen to Wayne’s tale about an incident that analyzed the parameters of their marriage, and we speak to Wayne and Elizabeth about how they have navigated their connection in the decades considering that.
