When the term "wife sharing" is mentioned, many people will either choose to ignore the whole issue or discourage it. However, deep inside, many also desire to engage in it.

Society always portrays that a man should stick to one woman and a woman should stick to one man, so the notion or thought of a man sharing his wife with other men sexually is typically treated as taboo.

But, the truth remains that sharing your wife with another man, or experiencing another men sharing his wife with you, isn't necessarily a bad thing at all if all parties involved are excited and consenting.

Here are 4 surprising benefits of wife sharing and how it can even improve your marriage.

1. Wife sharing can spice up your sex life.

It is a known fact that even so-called "marriages made in heaven" go through some storms. A time comes when your queen or love of your life stops being all that. It might be momentary, but it still affects you both.

In fact, many divorces are fuelled by a stale love life — with both partners having nothing to talk about, lacking energy, or feeling ignored.

Rather than being a victim of a boring bedroom, wife sharing can set you both on an exciting kinky adventure.

2. Wife sharing reduces boredom and monotony.

Let’s face it! Married life can become boring and monotonous. Sleeping and waking up every morning, seeing the same face. Putting up with the same old boring stories. Trying hard not to stare at your friend’s or neighbor’s wife.

Wife sharing is a great way to kill the monotony and boredom in married life. You, as well as your wife, will have something different to experiment with and talk about.

3. Wife sharing improves trust.

Sharing your wife is more than just widening your sexual experiences. It also helps in building trust.

You probably are asking yourself, how? Well, many men and women are involved in infidelity or unfaithfulness simply because their married life sucks.

Unfaithfulness brings mistrust in a marriage, but wife sharing allows a husband and wife to experiment with other people openly. The openness and transparency build trust among the couples.

In fact, a couple involved in wife sharing will not engage in other affairs without first informing their partner.

4. Wife sharing creates new experiences.

There is a saying that states "Experience is the best teacher." No matter how many books you read how many movies you watch, or visits you make to the marriage counselor, you are highly unlikely to salvage a stale relationship.

But, if you opt to experiment with other people's husbands and wives, you get to learn new things. In the end, you become much wiser and more open-minded.

Is wife sharing healthy for your marriage?

If you are in agreement and practice safe sex then yes, wife sharing can be healthy.

Monogamy isn't for everyone, but wife sharing is also not for everyone.

Be sure to talk it over together openly and establish rules and boundaries. If you easily get jealous or are a bit on the territorial side, this lifestyle may not be for you.

But while many people choose to not talk about it, and if they do, they talk in hush tones, sharing wives is becoming more accepted. Many people are already doing it secretly. Some have even given it names such as wife exchange, wife swapping, and more. This desire is fuelled by the factors mentioned above.

Rather than trying to fight the truth of what turns you both on, it's probably high time to accept the truth and consider a new adventure together.
