Open Marriage: A New Life Style for Couples
Any baby boomers out there remember this controversial title? (I believe my mom called it a “cheating manual”.) Of course this WAS an appropriate (if controversial) choice in the early 1970’s. It really does belong in an archive. The condition of this particular title is in pretty bad shape and should be weeded on condition alone. If you get beyond the groovy pop psychology talk, it is basically saying that one single person can’t be responsible for fulfilling all a marriage partner’s needs. The controversial part of this book is the chapter that questions sexual monogamy. I know this title is significant for the time and should be kept in a collection– probably in a university or large library with a broad psychology/marriage collection. Any marriage experts/psychology people want to comment on the viability of this title in a popular materials collection for a public library? In the meantime, enjoy a few of these morsels.
