    The term live-in boyfriend is pretty much self-explanatory. Certainly, it would be expected that the couple has an intimate relationship. However, nothing further is implied by that term.

    What's your opinion RonBee on a term " an open marriage".

    It's already been discussed in one of my previous posts.

    A lot of guys say that "an open marriage" suggests that partners are still legally married but each of them has a sexual relationship with another man/woman. So in this case "live-in boyfriend/gilfriend wouldn't it have a slightly negative meaning? I mean someone you have a fling with.

    In an open marriange relationships outside the marriage may or may not occur. It's the attitude toward them that is important. If you have a live-in boyfriend or girlfriend that is more than a fling.
