Some say that open marriages are a recipe for disaster, but these famous couples say otherwise. These married celebrity couples admit that attraction to other people is a natural force and don’t restrict each other in the slightest. If you’ve been curious about open marriages, why not take a page from these five celebrity relationships that have them?

Open Marriages for Famous Celebrity Couples

1. Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith: This Hollywood couple has talked openly about their marriage recently, with Will Smith stating, “Our perspective is, you don’t avoid what’s natural and you’re going to be attracted to people.” The famous couple doesn’t keep each other on a tight leash by any means — even allowing one another to get intimate if the other approves.

2. Robin Thicke and Paula Patton: After Robin Thicke’s scandalous VMA performance with Miley Cyrus, the celebrity couple came forth about their open marriage. Thicke claims that the two have a very strong love and have the “most functional dysfunctional marriage in Hollywood.” Whatever works, we guess!

3. Dolly Parton and Carl Dean: These two have a “don’t ask, don’t tell” policy. The country crooner told Oprah Winfrey in 2010, “That just means we let each other be who we are and how we are. But I’d kill him if I knew he was with somebody.”

4. Kody Brown and Christine, Meri, Robyn and Janelle Brown: Also known as “The Sister Wives,” this group is an extreme example of an open marriage. While all of them care about their family as a whole, some of the wives admit to having animosity towards each other. With four women sharing one man, we can’t blame them!

5. Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie: While technically these two aren’t married, the famous couple share six children and behave in the public eye as such. Jolie claimed, “I doubt that fidelity is absolutely essential for a relationship… it’s worse to leave your partner and talk badly about him afterwards.”  She also said that the couple never set any restrictions on each other or their celebrity relationship, even though they live together.

It might not be okay for you, but it sure works for these famous couples! We give these pairs credit: An open marriage cannot be the easiest thing in the world, but they’ve been going strong for quite some time.
