When we are in an open relationship and have other dating partners, we have to understand that every action comes with great responsibility. Because we are still in a relationship and are not just sleeping around like a single, who does not have to care about anyone.Open relationships can be hard work and lots of unconditional love for one another.Open Relationships are like a mirror for ourselves, our personality and our ego.Particularly this kind of relationship concept will very quickly show us our shadows. Jealousy or ownership are signs that we unconsciously make the other our always available exclusive love-slave.Other studies show that 70 % of relationships end because one has cheated. Lovers start yearning for more polarity and diversity in their relationships - especially during long-term relationships.So People slowly look into other options and experiment with different concepts that suits their lifestyle better.
So you wonder why do people open up their relationship in the first place?
Whenever an emotion gets triggered we can use rules in order to milden pitfall and enjoy the positive side.
Both parties develop these rules with time together.
It means to take full responsibility for our actions.
When we break a rule and we, for example, forget to tell our main partner that we won’t come home for the night because we stay at our other lover, we have to understand that our main partner might become angry.
