An open relationship is one in which both people agree to get involved in a physical
(or emotional) relationship with other people without the act being considered to be infidelity. This is the text book definition of an open relationship and it can of course be tweaked as per the liking of the couple involved. While an open relationship is not the choice of many, a few definitely give it a shot. Here we list the benefits of being in an open relationship.
The biggest benefit is that there will be variety in your life. While you will always have someone to go back home to, you will have the option of going to someone else if you so wish. This variety is good as it prevents boredom and adds a fair amount of spice to life.
2. Helps bring couples closer
Believe it or not, an open relationship just might help bring you closer. The fact that you will be involved with other people will only help you realise the value of your partner and what she brings to the relationship.
3. Live out a fantasy
Kinky excites everyone! An open relationship helps you live out your kinkiest fantasies. Not many people get to live their romantic fantasies so if you get a chance to live yours, then you shouldn’t shy away from it.
4. Keep your options open
An open relationship will work wonders if you are too young, or either partner is going to spend a long time away because of work/study. This way you have each other to fall back on, as well the liberty to move on in case you meet someone interesting. This setting helps avoid awkwardness and surely prevents cheating. A win-win arrangement for both parties involved.
An open relationship is not something everyone can handle. The emotions, demands, and workings of such a relationship are different from what is considered ‘normal’. Make sure that you and your partner are on the same page and that both of you equally wish to be in an open relationship.
