That's just wife swapping with extra steps

Or husband swapping depending on how you look at it.

I think they should just switch to polyamory and swap relationships with each other after every fight. It'll keep things sparring and fresh.

Or is that how you legally swap wives? Lol

Wipe swapping is unhygienic.

Right!? It's so gross when my brother gives me back my "girlfriend" (fleshlight) without washing her out.

Even worse is when you don't realize it before going to town.

Funny story from the early 90's: this apparently played out in my small town elementary school. I was in 4th grade when shit really hit the fan and all the divorces/marriages happened. I obviously didn't know or understand the drama at the time, but I just grew up thinking it was normal for teachers to swap last names. My 1st grade teacher all of a sudden had my 3rd grade teacher's name and vice versa. It wasn't until (embarrassingly) much later that adult me thought about it was like "ooohhhh, that must've been quite the spicy gossip back in the day."


geo_prog t1_jb5qo6s wrote

In grade 7 my science teacher was Mrs. Marchand, married to french teacher Mr. Marchand. The teacher in the adjoining classroom was Mr. Holowka. Between the two classrooms was a storage room that had access from both classrooms but no access from the hallway. Basically a shared closet. Halfway through grade 8 Mrs. Marchand became Ms. Luke (her unmarried name) and Mr. Marchand got into a fight with Mr. Holowka. In grade 9 it was Mrs. Holowka and Mr. Marchand no longer taught at the school.

You just know that storage room was the site of many dirty deeds.

Did you ever get the story????


ImSoupOrCereal t1_jb6c4oq wrote

Not the spicy details unfortunately, but apparently they found some sort of "normal" because all three (husband of 3rd grade and then 1st grade teacher was also a high school teacher) stayed with the school district and in the same schools. For all I know, there was some sort of true wife swap that was amicable to all parties (doubtful, but we're talking small town Missouri so not out of the question lol).


sravll t1_jb41q5f wrote

No cheating or revenge involved but my ex husband is the partner of my current partners ex wife. We're all friends.


flowersermon9 t1_jb4srok wrote

One of my best friends parents are the same way and everyone still gets along, goes on vacations together, etc. I thought it was weird at first but no one in his actual family did so I guess I was the weird one. I had no idea this was so common!


Swaqqmasta t1_jb5drsa wrote

It's certainly not common but I've known people like this as well. It's harder with kids involved, but I've seen that too parents split up but stayed friendly and ended up doing a lot of "big family" style gatherings with both bio parents and their new partners all being involved in the kids lives and being friendly

It was weird for me to see as a kid but now I'm just really impressed


Cynical_Thinker t1_jb57jkf wrote

My parents did this as well. Had no idea that was where all my pettiness came from.


v3ritas1989 t1_jb5kzui wrote

Probably interesting for the children too. I actually have a family name that has no relation to my biological parents. The names were just carried over from another marriage. Not so funny though if you then date the daughter of the other couple and everyone else in school thinks you are dating your cousin.


Emanemanem t1_jb3fjus wrote

This situation actually happened to some friends mine. Except it wasn’t revenge, it just kind of happened.

Both couples were good friends with one another, there was an affair between two of the partners in the relationship, very messy breakup, etc etc. The cheating partners both moved out and eventually got married. In the aftermath, the non-cheating partners ended up together.


jihadijohhn t1_jb4ci2e wrote

What happened to the cheaters? Did they lived happily ever after


InflatableLabboons t1_jb4er9x wrote

I know a couple of couples who did this. Cheaters broke up many moons ago. The cheatees are still together. The female cheater was such a pious twat. Just feel sorry for the kids involved in a very messy situation.


Worldatmyfingertips t1_jb4mhdn wrote

Just looked up pious because my definition was exact opposite of yours and here I am learning that you can use it sarcastically to mean the opposite (in a sense)


FindorKotor93 t1_jb4p53e wrote

No. in context it means a holier than thou religious narcissist. Someone who espouses their own righteousness, forgives their own transgressions but hates those that don't make them feel like their faith is special. It's not a matter of sarcasm, it's just the fact that faith is a form of narcissism and so those most addicted to it are as hypocritical as you'd expect.


InflatableLabboons t1_jb4w79j wrote

I couldn't encapsulate her better than that... Especially having espoused the sanctity of marriage a year previously.


ARedditToPassTheTime t1_jb4gyxv wrote

I know a partner swap that happened almost a couple decades ago. The cheaters are still together, the cheatees broke up a long time ago. The cheaters were otherwise such good people, and the cheatees were both kind of pompous pricks.


Asatas t1_jb5wdyt wrote

My cheating ex at some point bought an apartment with her co-worker , also new partner, also same sport club. Seems happy because they can actually stand seeing each other 24/7/3+years. I'm not even mad bc I couldn't.

Twain meets Lange and marries him.

Lange has an affair with Twains best friend and they divorced.

Twain marries the husband of Twains best friend the same year.


Edelkern t1_jb3tkvm wrote

I doubt the couple that eloped actually cares, they made it pretty clear they don't want their previous partners. It's a pretty weak revenge.


-LexVult- t1_jb456bd wrote

Yeah, the only way revenge is applied is if one of the people who eloped still loved their partner. Which in most cases they wouldn't have eloped in the first place if they love their partner.

This honestly sounds like weird copium trying to soften the fact that their spouse doesn't love them and went to be with someone else. There was no revenge. Just two broken hearted people trying to cope and feel better about their shit situation.


NydNugs t1_jb4e080 wrote

Although it's pretty engrained in culture / worldview that you can only ever love one, it creates a fallacy because it's also accepted that true love can still be found after a husband/wife passes away. I actually believe it's the best evidence of the potential for multi-love. I bet it would still hurt them.


Mista_Cash_Ew t1_jb5fe36 wrote

You don't have to love someone to feel hurt by them. It could still hurt their egos that their exes moved on easily or the belief that the exes will be talking shit to each other behind their backs

NydNugs t1_jb4djp4 wrote

Sounds like some dodgy two birds one stone move. No guarantee she wouldn't exerted control over him in the future either, she doesn't respect the hearts of others.


Accomplished-Ad4334 t1_jb6cqjq wrote

Yeah she would come over and fuck her ex and write all over our camp that she loves him. She’d tell him that she wasn’t together with my ex, and then bring my ex to our campsite with her. She’s on a power trip fersure. It’s a shame my ex didn’t see it.


NydNugs t1_jb6gz66 wrote

That would ruin everything for me, I hope you were able to have a good time.


Accomplished-Ad4334 t1_jb6hqcs wrote

It was an extremely hard experience for me. It sucks because I’ve been going to festivals for years, and love that counterculture. I loved the art and everything and the people I met (mostly) were incredibly lovely. But I was out there for a month and had to watch my partner of 5 years fawn over someone else and I had to live with someone else who wouldn’t shut up about her. Plus living in a harsh environment in a tent? It was hard.

I’d love to go back someday with friends but couldn’t say I have a desire to go anytime soon!

Did something kinda similar recently, guy I was dating ditched me to go on a date with this girl he liked and then had the nerve to ask me to drive her home for him before we hung out, well she didn’t know about me and we kept in contact, guess which of the two of us are currently dating
