Open Marriages on Fox's "Morning Show"
On Fox TV this morning, Jenny Block (author of Open: Love, Sex, and Life in an Open Marriage) got a minute or two to enthuse about her relationships to the skeptical hosts, followed by two people who called open marriage a formula for disaster because people can never control their emotions. (Editor's note: It's not about controlling your emotions, it's about controlling your actions.)
The whole thing was fast, superficial, and I would say unhelpful. It was over before the idea at the heart of polyamory supporting your lover's other relationships, not just tolerating them could even get onto the floor. So the show was totally old-paradigm. Bleh.
At least it may help sell Jenny's book.
Watch the segment here: Part 1; Part 2.
Update: See the excellent discussions about this show at Joreth's journal and Anita Wagner's Practical Polyamory blog.
