Mum in open relationship with husband admits how she once tried to ditch a family holiday to have sex with her ex02/01/2020
WHEN you're married with kids, it can sometimes be difficult to keep the spark alive.
However, a mum has revealed the positives of being in an open relationship with her husband, with whom she lives with their three-year-old daughter in New York.
Speaking anonymously to New York Magazine, the woman explained how she and her other half had decided to allow each other to sleep with other people as long as family came first and hook-ups were entirely "painless" for the other person.
While she'd had two successful flings – albeit with married men – since the new arrangement came into force, she admitted to failing on both counts during a trip to Philadelphia with her husband and daughter.
The mum said: " I have an ex-boyfriend who lives out there and my goal is to see him somehow. He’s divorced and looking good on Facebook.
"I DM him that I’ll be in town and would love to hang out, but for all he knows I’m just a married mom now. Let’s see if he bites…"
I decide to be totally honest with my husband. 'I’d love to see my ex tomorrow night.'
Her ex told her that he was available for a drink the following night – however she was staying with her family.
She recalled: "We’re all getting into bed after a nice night of dinner, wine and board games.
"I decide to be totally honest with my husband. 'I’d love to see my ex tomorrow night. I just want to be very honest with you: It could lead to more.'
"My husband is not thrilled with this for a few reasons. The ex is someone I once loved.
My husband is not thrilled with this for a few reasons. The ex is someone I once loved.
"And leaving our Philly friends for a night of sex with someone else is somewhat in poor taste.
"Our friends know we’re experimenting with new ways to keep our marriage happy and healthy but this is very in-your-face. As I lay in bed, tense next to my husband, I decide it’s not worth it."
And, fortunately, the following night she realised that she had made the right decision not to see her ex in the end.
She added: "We got a sitter so the grown-ups are all at a restaurant. It’s really fun and relaxing. I’m glad I’m here with my husband and not anywhere else."
