Poll: Half of U.S. Young Adults Say Open Marriages Are ‘Acceptable’

Breitbart reports:

“Young adults, as well as Democrats, LGBTQ+ individuals, and those living with a partner are most accepting of open marriages — “a marriage where both spouses agree that they can date or have sex with other people” — Pew Research Center found.

The survey, which was conducted with 5,073 respondents between April 10-16 and published in September, found that more than half (51 percent) of young adults ages 18-29 say open marriages are “acceptable.” Young adults are the age group most likely to hold this view, with older adults expressing less support as they increase in age.”

Then comes this caution:

“Overall, U.S. adults are more unsupportive of open marriages, with 33 percent calling them ‘acceptable,’ and 50 percent calling them ‘unacceptable.’ Sixteen percent of respondents say open marriage is ‘neither’ acceptable nor unacceptable.”

In other words? There is abroad in the land a chunk of the population that believes “When Harry Met Sally” should be remade as “When Harry Met Sally, Louise, Peggy, Wanda and Janelle.”

Not to mention that were Shakespeare around today he would be writing “Romeo, Frank, Ralph, Artie, Chester, Ronald and Juliette.”

And oh yes. Divorce would become even more expensive. As Kevin Costner has just been learning, divorcing one wife is expensive. Reports are he has agreed to pay his now ex-wife $63,209 a month. Imagine if he had four!
