It's not only the therapists who are judgemental. The looks and comments from our doctors when requesting the full range of STD testing (VERY unprofessional in my opinion) can drive one to look elsewhere for healthcare...if it doesn't discourage entirely.

One of the articles written by a therapist that I clicked on said something like "fidelity is the glue that holds a marriage together." I don't think so. How sad.

Trust, respect, compassion and open honest communication hold a marriage together in my opinion and that is what is required for any marriage to be successful...open or not.

The negative biases of therapists drive many people with open marriages who need advice to look for support groups online when potential problems arise, as I did 5 years ago when opening up my marriage. Gained some wonderful insight from these groups.
