Are Open Relationships Right For You?
10 Questions to Help You Decide
Polyamory, swinging, and other forms of consensually nonmonogamous (CNM) relationships have seen a rise in popularity recently, with up to half men and a third of women saying their ideal relationship would be somewhat open. CNM relationships undoubtedly have certain benefits over traditional monogamy or over the more common “nonconsensual nonmonogamy” (AKA cheating). At the same time, they come with their own set of risks and challenges, and not everyone is going to find them easy to navigate.
