Open relationships, like any relationship model, require a lot of communication and mutual understanding in order to thrive. When you add the potential for more partners, combined with less time for date night, it can quickly create tension and trigger jealousy if both partners aren't truly on board.

And because mainstream culture is still geared towards monogamy, there aren't as many examples of what it looks like to have a healthy open relationship.

In these cases, it's often made evident that the person suggesting an open relationship only wanted that freedom for themselves, and don't have the amount of trust or self-confidence necessary to handle their partner stepping out.

In a popular post on the Am I The A**hole subreddit, OP asked if they were wrong for telling a friend she "reaped what she sowed" after she freaked out about her partner going on a date.

AITA for telling my friend she is reaping what she sowed?​​​​​​

OP shared that their friend Bella proposed an open marriage to her husband Mike at the beginning of quarantine.

Mike was reticent, but ultimately agreed because he wanted to save the relationship.
