Oscar-winning actress Mo’Nique is offering up some interesting marriage advice in a new interview with True Exclusives.
In the article, the twice-married actress and comedian talks about giving her husband a “pass” sleep with other people. Mo’Nique says that while couples should “live by” their marital vows, she also added ”people cheat because of something they’re not getting.” The solution? A “pass to cheat.”
Because — as Mo’Nique explains it — if couples have “open and honest conversations” with their partner, it’s OK to go ahead and cheat. Especially if the person your partner wants to cheat with will do something that you won’t do.
“What is it about that person that you find that you wanna sleep with? Because they may give you something that I’m simply not willing to do,” said the actress to True Exclusives. “And if that’s the case, how can I be mad? Because I’m not gon’ do it. Should I deprive you of not having it? That’s when the relationship is real real.”
While the comments might seem shocking this isn’t the first time the actress has discussed her open marriage.
“Could I have sex outside of my marriage with Sidney? Yes. Could Sid have sex outside of his marriage with me? Yes. That’s not a deal breaker,” said Mo’Nique in a 2010 interview with Barbara Walters. “That’s not something that we would say, ‘Oh my God because you were attracted to another person and because you happened to have sex let’s end the marriage.”
To each their own, right?
