As the saying goes, “marriage is work”. We all know what happens to people when their lives are all work and no play. Especially if their job involves being away from their spouse for long stretches of time. But they don’t have to throw the baby out with the bathwater. Savage Love columnist Dan Savage coined a term for open marriages and relationships that involve strict ground rules and respect: monogam-ish. It seems to have worked for Savage and his husband Terry, for over 2 decades.

Therapist Ian Kerner says that it works better if both partners come into the relationship with openness in mind. Bringing it up mid-stream is a sign that maybe the couple isn’t as romantically compatible as they once thought.

There are a variety of reasons why the celebrity couples on this list have tried opening up their marriage. For some, it was an experiment that failed epically and led to the dissolution of their union. For others, they used what they learned from the experience to fortify their relationship and stay together. A few liked it so much that they kept it up.

Frankly, producers and directors are asking a lot of children. Even with union laws in place, the hours on set can be grueling. Some roles can even take an emotional toll on the actors. When you think about it, the very concept of child actors is rather cruel. But anyone who watched the original Beverly Hills 90210 knows how the alternative of hiring adults to play kids can lend a certain insincerity to the project.

Many of the kids on this list got the boot from their jobs simply because their bodies were following the course of nature. Others were sacked because they picked up adult vices in their off time. A scant few made the personal choice to move on in order to live normal lives and salvage what remained of their childhood. In a couple of tragic cases, losing their jobs utterly destroyed their careers and even their lives.
