    Hello Jodie_b, I'm in an open relationship, but it's more in theory than practise at the mo. My partner defines himself as ployamourous. I define myself as not liking to define myself, but I agree with a lot of the philosphy of polyamoury; not being possessive or jealous, very open communication, valuing your relationships, and working to make sure you partner feels valued and loved, how ever many people you are seeing.

    In my opinion, so many people have affairs that end up runining thier relationships, leaving one person feeling hurt, betrayed and stupid. I'd prefer to openly talk about it before anything happens to figure out how and if it will affect your current relationship, and how best to minimise hurt feelings and keep everyone happy.

    Anyway, for the past year or so it's just been the two of us, and we're getting married soon, but there have been pointes in our relationship where we've each had other partners and have negotiated it well, and I imagine that will continue throughout our (hopefully) long and happy marriage.

    I hope this has given you some insight and I'm happy to answer any more questions about my particular brand of "open". I'm sure a few members on here are swingers who could talk to you about thier experience with that kind of thing.
