In 2006, Carl Stevens came home from work and told his wife of nearly a decade, Kenya, that he’d fallen in love with a co-worker. Although he hadn’t had sex with her, he couldn’t deny his feelings. After a serious discussion about the state of their relationship, Carl suggested that the two consider an open marriage.
Initially Kenya was not on board with the idea, but after years of consideration, she was actually the first one to have sex outside of their marriage. The couple said the nature of their relationship now has helped them be more open and honest with each other. There is integrity within in their relationship.
