Mo'Nique's Open Marriage: Actress Explains Decision To Stop Being Non-Monogamous
Mo'Nique, the Oscar-winning comedian and actress, reveals that she and her husband have ceased their open marriage. In a recent interview, the Maryland native goes into detail about her thoughts on the arrangement now compared to years ago. The couple once agreed that sleeping with others would not impact their marriage. This was the case for some time, but as they both grew older, Mo'Nique began to change her mind. Still, her reasons do not appear to be out of jealousy, or regret.
It is not uncommon for long-term couples to explore the possibility of an open relationship. However, it's also not uncommon for people to change their minds after opening their love lives. In the case of Mo'Nique and her husband Sidney Hicks, their age was one of the biggest factors. The actress states in her interview that "Life began to happen." As the two grew older, their relationship grew stronger. As a result, they now have a bond that neither wants to risk by adding someone else to the mix.
Mo'Nique Grew Out Of Her Open Marriage
Open marriages are still a controversial subject. However, Mo'Nique is not a stranger to controversy in the entertainment world, as well as being honest about her life. The couple has been married since 2006, making their marriage over 15 years old. A lot can happen and change within that time. "He loved me at my worst," she shared in her recent interview with The Hollywood Reporter. "I didn't want to sacrifice that for just a lay. So I grew out of that." Now, the couple is stronger than ever despite who else may have been involved.
While a lot of couples are growing apart from each other, it's good to see a couple grow closer together. Not every open marriage ends poorly, and their relationship has been a testament to that. Sidney Hicks has stated in the past that their open arrangement would never phase his love for her. The two are incredibly close and have known each other for a long time. The idea to open their relationship was Mo'Nique's at the time, but so was the decision to close it off. Check back later for more pop culture news updates.
