About this product
- DescriptionFinally, a book about open marriage that grapples with the problems surrounding mogamy and fidelity in an honest, heartfelt, and n-fringe manner. Jenny Block is your average girl next door, a suburban wife and mother for whom married life never felt quite right. While many books on this topic presuppose that the reader is ready to embrace an alternative lifestyle, Block operates from the assumption that most couples who are curious about or engaged in open marriages are in fact more like her -- rmal people who question whether mogamy is right for them; good people who love their spouses but want variation; capable parents who are t deviant just because they choose to be honest about their desires. Open challenges our tions of what traditional marriage looks like, and presents one woman's journey down an uncertain path that ultimately proves open marriage is a viable option for her and others.
