: MediaTakeOut.com told you months ago that comedian Mo’Nique and her husband Sidney had an open marriage. But now she’s the whole world about it.
Here’s a quote that Mo’Nique gave the New York Times:
“When I said I had an open marriage, people automatically jumped to sex. They automatically went there. But I’ve been best friends with my husband since we were 14 years old. When we say open, we’re very honest. There are no secrets. Oftentimes you have people that are married, but they’re strangers, and we refuse to be those people.”
[If Sydney had sex with another woman] it’s not a deal breaker. It’s not something that will make us say, ‘Oh, we’ve got to go to divorce court,’ because we’re very real people and we understand what’s for us. It doesn’t work for everybody. I’ve had to sneak and I’ve had to lie, and I don’t want to do that any more. But my husband is so awesome and so fine and so—oh, girl. … No other man can compare.”
You know what – as crazy as this may sound – it actually works for some people. Wyclef and his wife have an open relationship and they’ve been together for more than 10 years. And look at the wonders that it’s done for Bill and Hillary…
