How To Make An Open Relationship Work

on Wednesday, 16 May 2018. Posted in Front Page Headline, Media Updates

Complex Like any relationship, open unions don’t follow stringent guidelines. But when venturing into non-traditional territory, something like a rule book is more necessary than not. “Set the ground-rules for what actions and behaviors are allowed and disallowed under your open arrangement,” Courtney Clemen, founder of The V. Club, tells Complex. “It’s very important to think through all the scenarios and circumstances that could arise.” Couples should have a crystal clear understanding of what they are permitting each other to do, because the concept of sex is a broad spectrum and what’s OK and what’s not is subjective. Having agreeable rules ultimately minimizes feelings of insecurity, fear, and jealousy that can arise in an open relationship.
