Carl, 46, and Kenya, 42, said it all began when Carl admitted to falling in love with another woman almost 11 years into their marriage.

Naturally, Kenya was distraught. They discussed about polygamy but she felt it was unfair to her. She said: "I told him if we're going to do this, then I'm going to do this too."

Instead of breaking up, they chose to be free. "Carl and I have been open for 12 years. We enjoy it so much that we support other people coming into this lifestyle."

Carl said although it was initially hard for him to imagine his wife being intimate with another man, it made sense to him in terms of equality.
