Unpopular Opinion: Open Relationships Aren't Wrong For Everyone

Brazilian soccer legend Ronaldinho made headlines recently, not for his athletic talent but for trying to marry two women. My immediate reaction? "This guy wants to have his cake and eat it too."


But upon further reflection, I realized that my reaction was not to Ronaldinho's situation specifically, but to open relationships in general. When mutually desired and carried out with respect and honesty, they aren't wrong. In fact, for many partnerships, open relationships are necessary.
