Poll: How Would You Describe Your Marriage?

As you know, President Obama has come out in favor of same-sex marriage.  To this I say, Hallelujah!

I’m elated the President has articulated his beliefs to the public. As the niece of a gay uncle (who is married to a magnificent man), I’m truly overjoyed when politicians, especially the President of the United States, express their support for same-sex marriage and the LGBT community.

Now that we are on the subject of marriage, I have a question for you. Regardless of whether you are in a heterosexual marriage or a homosexual marriage, how would you describe your marriage? Are you in a monogamous marriage or an open marriage?  Please submit your response in our poll.

    Poor choice of words. Hallelujah is Hebrew for, you must praise the Lord! Whatever you may think of the Hebrews and their religion, they are the ones who brought theological antihomosexuality into the formerly pro-gay pagan world — “Thou shalt not lie with mankind, as with womankind, it is abomination”, as the 1611 translators put it. A billion Christians and a billion Moslems take this command to be the eternally unalterable word of God.

    So if you’re pro-gay marriage, or even if you’re just pro-gay, “Hallelujah” is the LAST invocation you want to make. Because if the God of Israel (the “Yah” of Hallelu-Yah) actually exists, homosexuals and cultures who tolerate them are in for a rude and terrifying awakening, sooner or later.

    To which I can only devoutly say… Hallelujiah!

    Shoulds say “as far as I know, both partners have been faithful.” You can never know with absolute certainty that your partner has been faithful. The people who feel absolutely certain about this are often people who are taking their marriages for granted….

      Gotcha! 😀
      You never know… :roll:

      Besides, there should be more than just 4 options.
      – Monogamous by choice:
      — No cheating (AFAIK)
      — Some cheating, back to monogamous
      — Cheating has become the norm
      — Do both spouses cheat?
      – Open by choice:
      — We’re open and we like it
      — Has become troublesome
      And so on , and so on…

      I mean, outside of theory, marriages can have lots of possible outcomes.
      Not just four: that’s oversimplification.

        Very good point. Add one more wrinkle here — two people married to each other might have different answers to the same question….

    I’m in a triad with a married couple. We live together, and have a wonderful life… Far more amazing… living with my friends and lovers than any past relationship.

    • Terence Manuel says:


      Your comment is a bit confusing. So, is it just you and the married couple?

      You mentioned living with friends and lovers…..

      Just asking.
