Take a walk on the wild side and learn how to design an open relationship by Dr Tammy Nelson
Traditional forms of marriage and commitment assume sexual and social monogamy. Although non-monogamous, open relationships have always existed, and affairs are rampant, today’s definition of monogamy has expanded to include all sorts of relationship varieties.
This is not your grandparent's monogamy. Contemporary monogamy now includes all kinds of ways of being in a committed relationship.
Tammy calls this “open monogamy” – which means being in a committed partnership with open boundaries defined by only by limitations created by you. There are no rules, except the ones you make up.
However, there are boundaries. And breaking them means you may find that cheating, lying, keeping secrets, and hurting each other doesn’t work.
Learn how to be openly monogamous and in a relationship at the same time. Embrace other relationships, consensual sex with other partners, polyamory, and even monogamish connections.
At their core these can all be branches of the same tree, sub-relationships, or primary, life giving arteries that feed you new and unique energy from a multitude of sources, helping you grow your roots and letting your partner grow as well.
