What is an open relationship?
This is an important question, and the answer can be as complex and detailed as you and your partner (or partners) wish.
At its core, an open relationship means that a couple, either married or dating, agrees to allow one another the ability to make romantic connections with other people. Open relationships can include both members of the couple dating the same person together, or separately. Open relationships can also include dating other couples and groups.
The basics of an open relationship are hardly something we can define for you, but within an open relationship, couples usually establish boundaries and rules based on mutual respect. For example, an open relationship with one couple could mean no texting or talking outside of the meet-up. But another couple might establish a far different boundary with communication.
How to have an open relationship?
We have found that in order to have a successful open relationship, clear boundaries, and honest, open communication are key. All involved parties should be made aware of said boundaries, in order to maintain them and ensure that everyone is on the same page.
While some might see an open relationship as fantasy, being 100% honest with your primary partner, can make it a reality.
How to discuss an open relationship?
Successful open relationships don’t happen without clear communication. Keep in mind that most spouses don’t communicate their dinner desires all that well, much less discuss an open marriage or relationship.
In other words, it’s OK to feel nervous.
Discussing an open Relationship isn’t something accomplished in a brazen manner. Instead, you need to lead up to the conversation by increasing your communication over your Relationship. You need to establish an exchange of information about where you are as a couple and what makes both of you happy.
Hint, start asking your partner what makes him/her happy. Then, get them talking about their bedroom and romance desires.
Build, build, build partner communication. When communication is healthy, discussing an open relationship experiment becomes a lot easier.
How to maintain an open relationship?
Trust. Boundaries. More trust.
An open relationship requires partners to participate in an effective trust exercise. You both need to follow through with sticking to boundaries. Moreover, keep communicating your thoughts. If you feel insecure about the open relationship experiences, speak up. Is your partner feeling a little iffy over things? Talk to them.
Communication solves 90% of relationship problems, even beyond an open relationship or marriage.
Polyamory vs. Open Relationship
While their true definitions may differ, it is the way that you interpret them, that really matters.
Usually, Polyamory means that a person is maintaining a romantic relationship with more than 1 person. Polyamorous couples often rely on different partners for different types of support, be it emotional, physical, or social. Partners are very aware of each other. They often meet, interact, become friends and even like family.
Open relationships are usually looser than polyamorous ones, with more emphasis on the physical aspects of the relationship. Open relationships are more about the freedom to spend time with whomever you choose, with minimal rules or guidelines. Successful open relationships involve the same amount of respect, trust and communication as polyamorous relationships, but they are usually more about fulfilling physical needs.
Defining “polyamory” and “open relationship” may be a great starting point, however in practice, these 2 concepts can be whatever you make of them. The lines between them can blur and evolve. You can put whatever label you want on your relationships, as long as you are honest with your partner or partners..
