An open relationship is any relationship where partners are free to engage in sexual relations with others outside of their marriages. Before deciding of this type of set up, couples will need to have an open and honest communication about what it means to them while setting boundaries for this type of relationships.
Although there are many great benefits to this type of relationship, couples should be secure in their relationship before embarking on such a lifestyle journey together.
Couples who decide to engage in this relationship trend tend to experience divorce less often. This is basically because all parties involved are satisfied with the set up and know what they should expect. Remember nobody is 100% perfect, but interacting with others outside of the marriage provides one with variety which makes it easy to stay satisfied.
Monogamy on the other hand is the state of being married to only one person at a time which can breathe content and resentment over time. The relationship can sometime grow monotonous over time if both parties are willing to do the work on keeping the relationship excitement going.

It is also very great to learn different sex styles that may lead to greater satisfaction for all involved.
