Woman blasts her in-laws’ ‘disgusting’ open marriage – after they revealed they only sleep with partners who work minimum wage jobs because they ‘don’t count as real people’
- Zoeclare88, who appears to be American, shared the story on Reddit
- Her mother-in-law revealed details of her open marriage with her husband
- They are allowed to stay outside their marriage, but only with people in low-wage ‘service-type- jobs like bartenders and maids
- She said ‘there is no danger in developing feelings’ because these people aren’t their ‘equals’
- The Reddior told her mother-in-law off, while other Redditors have called the in-laws ‘gross’ and ‘entitled’
A woman says she was disgusted to learn the details of her in-laws marital arrangement, wherein they are allowed to sleep with other people — but only those in ‘service-type minimum wage jobs’ because ‘they don’t count as real people.”‘
Zoeclare88, who appears to be American, shared the story on Reddit, writing that she learned the awkward details from her mother-in-law this week was so horrified that she told her off.
She said her mother-in-law revealed that she and her husband have an open marriage, but that only applies to sleeping with bartenders or maids because they’re not ‘equal.’

Zoeclare88, who is living with her in-laws at the moment, insisted that their open marriage in and of itself doesn’t bother her, and she had actually guessed what their situation was long before her mother-in-law spilled the beans.
‘I’ve always suspected they had an open marriage because of some off color jokes but I didn’t really care or want to know,’ she wrote in a post that has since been deleted by Reddit moderators.
But on Saturday, they were celebrating her father-in-law’s birthday with some friends over, and Zoeclare88 went to help her mother-in-law in the kitchen.
‘MIL was talking to her best friend about their marriage and the friend asked if she can f*** anyone she wants,’ she said.
‘MIL explained that they have some rules and they can’t sleep with anyone who is an “equal.”
‘She said they only go outside the marriage with people in service-type minimum wage jobs like their maid, someone who works at their country club, or a bartender (examples she gave) she said they do that because people in those positions don’t count as “real people” so there is no danger in developing feelings.’
Upset: The Reddit user shared the information in a post that has since been deleted, revealing that she told her mother-in-law she thinks the arrangement is ‘disgusting’
Zoeclare88 said that she ‘couldn’t bite her tongue’ after hearing her mother-in-law talk that way, calling her ‘disgusting’ and lecturing that ‘those fake people have more grit, work ethic, and character than she could ever have and I’m glad I wasn’t born in a Victorian novel like she apparently was.’
Her mother-in-law is now upset, calling Zoeclare88 disrespectful and ‘close-minded.’
Redditors have also slammed the in-laws, calling them ‘rude,’ ‘bigoted,’ and ‘elitist and gross.’
‘The fact that they intentionally only seek out people in certain wage jobs also insinuates they want there to be a power imbalance in the encounter, which is further supported by them saying people in low wage jobs aren’t “real people,”‘ wrote one.
‘I didn’t like when this happened to Johnny Castle in Dirty Dancing and I don’t like it now,’ wrote another.
‘I’m gonna assume they don’t tell these “lesser people” how they think about them before they f*** them. Otherwise they’d probably have a lot less dirty peasant sex with the proletariat,’ wrote a third.
