Films, media, and self-help books present the message that to desire more than one partner means not having a "true" relationship.
In the post-WWII 1950s-1970s, it was traditional to "date around" (with guidelines such not going out with one particular suitor twice in a row) until ready to start "going steady" (the onset of exclusivity and sexual exploration); since then, non-exclusive dating around has lost favour and going directly to steady (now known simply as exclusive dating) has been elevated instead.
An open relationship, also known as non-exclusive relationship, is an intimate relationship that is sexually non-monogamous.
However, although ability to veto can be a useful tool in negotiation, a successful negotiation and open relationship can still occur without it.
Any sexual contact outside of a strictly monogamous or polyfidelitous relationship increases the possibility that one member of the group will contract a sexually transmitted infection and pass it into the group.
Neither barrier device use (such as condoms) nor more vigilant STI testing and vaccination can eliminate such risk, but can reduce the statistical increase attributable to nonmonogamy.
Of the men who are in an open relationship, 75% believe that open relationships are great.
Many couples within open relationships are dual-career, meaning that both primary partners have a stable job and/or a career.
Topics that are commonly found in negotiations between couples include honesty, the level of maintenance, trust, boundaries and time management.
