When you change your relationship from monogamous to open, things will change.

Whether it’s for the better or for the worse, the relationship dynamic will either improve or truly bring out the issues you already have.

For these couples, they regret opening their union to other people.

Personally, I can’t see myself in an open relationship – at least not with anyone I feel serious about. Not knocking it for anyone else, but be sure you consider carefully before diving in.

Do you have any kind of experience with open relationships? How did it go for you, or for someone you know?
