Mo’nique and her husband, Sidney Hicks, have been open about the fact that their relationship is, well, open. But recently, on a Mo’Nique and Sidney’s Open Relationship podcast, she explained why her husband is allowed to have sex with other women.

“If my husband should sleep with another woman, is that the end of our marriage? No. If I should sleep with another man, or have sex — if we gon’ do the do is that the end? No. But we’re open and honest with one another to have the conversation,” she explained.

“So when people say cheat, how do you cheat? When you say here are the answers and what that does is, what it did for me, it made me really appreciate what I had.”
