Watch polyamory married dating online
“Many adults of all ages are finding that monogamy does not suit them and is no longer a fiscal and social requirement.” Shortly after she started seeing Matt and Rachel, Ezzo met her future husband.
“I had told him [about my lifestyle] on our first date,” she says.
The first time Danielle Ezzo met Matt and Rachel, she was relieved.
The fashionable trio had met on the dating site, Nerve, and had been exchanging messages, but hadn’t yet met in real life.
Violet focuses on her two other partners when her husband is traveling; when he is home, “I will usually spend maybe one or two nights with somebody else.” Her husband’s long-term girlfriend lives out of state, she explains, so he’ll go spend a week with her at a time. Violet, for whom sex is a “big priority,” prefers three lovers because the arrangement “keeps me from becoming a burden on any single one of them.” “There is crazy, wild sex and lots of it, and that’s important to me, but it’s not all there is to my love affairs — not by a long shot,” says Violet.
Violet, a New York City higher education teacher, 49, would only speak to The Post under a pseudonym.
But perhaps the lifestyle’s most visible celebrity moment came in January 2012, when Marianne Gingrich told ABC News that her ex-husband, the politician Newt Gingrich, had asked for an “open marriage” while having an affair with his soon-to-be third wife Callista.
(Newt Gingrich has given several extensive denials regarding his ex-wife’s claims.) It’s not just horny men with insecure wives looking the other way who are in non-monogamous relationships — often, women are the ones who instigate the practice.
“When I’m with Rachel we might [watch] a silly, fun ’80s movie, but I won’t do that silly ’80s movie with Matt.
He likes strange horror flicks.” Luckily, she says, “I like both of those things.” Ezzo is part of a growing movement of people who are practicing consensual non-monogamy — or, in plain English, open relationships.
