Are Open Marriages Always Doomed?

It seems like everyone is discussing the concept of open marriages this week after Marianne Gingrich, the second wife of GOP presidential candidate Newt Gingrich, claimed in an ABC News "Nightline" interview that her ex asked her to enter into an "open marriage" arrangement so he could continue to see his affair partner, Callista Bisek.

The Real Reason Men Ask Their Wives For Open Marriages

Back around the same time that Newt suggested an open marriage to Marianne, my ex made a similar request. Only he wanted the other woman to move in with us, which, if you ask me, is taking the idea of open marriage to a whole new level.

Newt Gingrich Doesn't Want an Open Marriage

Just when I think I can no longer be shocked by politicians' behavior, this comes along. It's not the fact that Newt Gingrich's ex-wife claims he wanted an open marriage that I find so shocking. Not at all. Maybe he did. Maybe he didn't.

This week, Rick Perry closed out his presidential run while Newt Gingrich's second ex-wife claimed he'd wanted an open marriage -- and President Obama brought down the house at the Apollo by revealing his heretofore hidden inner-Al Green. Meanwhile, Mitt Romney, unable to counter the hardening narrative that he's a tone deaf, out of touch mega-millionaire, didn't help matters with his response to being asked about his tax returns. When you are being booed for lack of financial transparency by a GOP debate crowd, odds are you've probably royally screwed up. It's never a good idea -- and especially not this year -- to be seen as completely out of touch with the economic concerns of ordinary Americans. Perhaps as he hobbles into Florida, he'll be helped by a shadowy new super PAC, Rich Kids for Romney (see the group's first ad here).

Timing Is (Almost) Everything: Bain Capital, Open Marriages and Why There's No Such Thing as a "January Surprise"

There is a case to be made that a political candidate wants all of his weaknesses exposed as early as possible -- again, as long as those weaknesses won't defeat him. And it's pretty clear that Bain won't keep Romney from being the Republican nominee for president.
