Do you feel friends with benefits can sometimes improve your main relationship?Page 3 of 3    (1, 2, 3)
It was not my intent to imply that YOUR intent was to enrage anybody. But there will be those who are.

Especially if they are not privy to the fact that the woman wanted more from this man than he was willing to give.

I still don't see where this scenario IMPROVED the marriage-it simply kept it from failing completely-or becoming a black slough of unhappiness.

Although it may appear on casual observation that somebody got away with something-on closer inspection, I don't think the woman 'got away with' much-unless she had a pathological self-esteem issue that made her believe having a husband was vital to her validity as a human being.

WOW!!! Really? Improves the relationship? HOW? Lets see, insert distrust into an already rocky relationship, check! The sexual spark is gone? Ok, how about renting some porn or buying a sex swing and communicating on what the needs are! Missing ingredient? Hell, next time I'm cooking and can't find the right spice I guess I should just invite a friend over and have sex over the boiling pot!! WTF? Live together happily? Oh sure!!! I can see that right now!! "Hey babe, could you go sleep on the couch because Mr. FWB is here and you're in the way!!"
I think its horse $hit and if your relationship is at that point you need not be in the relationship anymore!

well..it can work..sort of..although i would not say it makes it easier for the couple to live together..quite the contrary..if they are not intimate anymore..its more like roommates and usually they go their seperate ways but stay together only for financial reasons.

I think sex between two married people should be something they honor. If it gets dull-work on it. Usually people that say they can cheat and have sex outside of their relationship do so because they take the easy way out. They don't want the financial ruin, nor loss of friends and each others family units.
Everyone knows that marriage is a long time journey, if you take the most precious intimate closeness and bonding act we have of sex and turn it into a bodily function, that is indeed a shame and a sham.
Quit using others for your selfish desires and work to make the woman or man you are suppose to love your focus.
