Inspired my story:

Gina and Paul lived the good life. They had a home on the bay and a sail boat to go with it. They worked hard and partied harder. They spent every weekend together except when they were traveling for work. They were fortunate they had jobs that took them out of town once a month.

Gina spent a lot of time in Chicago where Brian lived and Paul made the trek to LA every few weeks to see Linda.

Neither spouse knew of the other’s indiscretions, mostly because neither one of them cared.

If it’s not broke, don’t fix it.

  1. Great story Dawn! “If it’s not broke, don’t fix it.” I am pretty sure this lifestyle will catch up with Gina and Paul and they will find out just how broke their marriage is and was all along. Thank you for participating in FFfAW challenge!


  2. I wonder just how long they’ll be happy with things the way they are – though open marriages do, supposedly, work for some people… An interesting story. πŸ™‚
