My Open Marriage Column for Tango Magazine

March 8, 2008 4 comments

threesomeI recently signed a contract to write a biweekly column for Tango magazine. Tango is a sex and relationships publication that is not entirely unlike, but with slightly less of an overt hipster edge, if you know what I mean. The column, which I’ll be writing for at least the next six months, is called Marriage Without Monogamy. And while it’s ostensibly about the open marriage I’m currently planning with my fiancée, on a slightly deeper level it’s about the very quickly changing nature of marriage culture, so to speak, in the 21st century. My first essay went online about a month ago, and it’s essentially an introduction of sorts to the larger story itself. You can read it by clicking here. The second essay was also published recently. To give that story a read, please click here.

Interestingly, the Huffington Post picked up both columns, and both have received a surprisingly amount of attention by Huff Post readers. Seriously: If you’re having a rough day at work and feeling the need for a good, deep laugh, check out the Readers Comments that have been posted at the end of the essay. Many of them are just absolutely insane; you can actually feel the anger seeping off the computer monitor, and as a writer myself, I can tell you from personal experience that that’s not necessarily the easiest thing to do!
