Open Relationships

Hello Beauty! Okay. So. The other day I was listening to the radio and I heard Monique (the actress) promoting her podcast with her husband about their open marriage.

I found this very interesting. Now I’m not judging but I have a big opinion.

In Hollywood, there has been a lot of hype on the topic open marriage and open relationship. So allegedly, Will and Jada (The Smiths) have an open marriage, Toya Wright gives her husband or soon to be ex- husband (Memphis) eight passes a year to cheat, and now Monique made the decision to have an open marriage with her husband (Sidney Hicks). This is crazy.

When I think of open relationships my mind shoots to emotions and feelings, STDs/ HIV, and baby mama/daddy drama. That’s a huge decision to make and a huge risk on love.

Since when did love become such a huge risk?

Love is not open; love is closed to the outside but open to the people in it.

I can’t be in love with you and give you my all when there an outside piece of you somewhere or everywhere else. When loving a person becomes hard to do then you need to re-evaluate the person you love. Point. Blank. Period.

Personally, my love an affection is not to be shared with anyone. I’m not ashamed to say I am SELFISH. When is comes to my spouse, the person I have fell in love with, the person I lay next to every night- OH BABY! I am SELFISH. I want their attention and constant affection, and they must have a set of eyes the only looks at me.

How can you be in love and be complete with another man or women who may step out on the relationship every now and then? That’s how people get hurt. Honestly …

Now let me get to these cheat days. I will not give my man permission to allow another female the opportunity to have what’s mine. ARE YOU CRAZY? If I’m with a guy who cheats or wants to cheat, that’s when our relationship ends. Love is not hard, but when it becomes hard to do – that’s when two mature adults know its time to step away from one another.

But I am interested in hearing what Monique and her husband have to share about their open marriage. I would also like to hear why she choice to initiate this into her relationship (because it was her idea). Not only will the podcast be about just their relationship but also topics dealing with the concerns in relationships that affect us all on a daily basis, according to Monique’s tweet back on November 29th.

Okay so after doing a little research, I have learned that the podcast premiered on January 11th. New episodes are added every Monday. You can listen to this podcast at

There are already 3 episodes up and I can not wait to have some quick time to sit and listen to what they have to say. I will definitely do a follow up with my thoughts, opinions and maybe rants after I listen to these podcast episodes.

In the meantime, I’d love to hear your thoughts on Open Relationships…

Until next, Stay beautiful!
