“We could have some fun trying this” or “Could we talk about the possibility of an open marriage?” are some of the ways used to phrase the request to your partner. Rather than using terms such as swinging or open marriage, describe exactly what changes you have in mind for the relationship.
The easiest way to put their unease to rest is by offering them the chance to try their hand at casual dating for a while you sit back and enjoy hearing about their exciting encounters and supporting them through the experience. If they were feeling like this was your excuse to mess around with someone you’ve had a crush on, making things about them will put them at ease.
