Open relationships are becoming more popular in the mainstream media. Which is leaving a lot of couples who are struggling with their relationship to ask themselves, “should we open up our relationship?” While opening up the relationship may seem like the easiest and simplest solution, there’s a lot to consider. For many people, an open relationship is a good idea in theory but in practice, it can have serious consequences. If you and your partner are considering opening up your relationship, here are some things to consider.


What’s Your Communication Style?

Communication is a crucial key to any successful relationship but especially if you and your partner are considering opening up yours. If you and your partner struggle with being honest with each other or struggle communicating in general, then an open relationship is not going to solve whatever issue you think it will. Couples therapy can help you and your partner learn and practice healthy communication skills.


How Busy Are You?

Just because you open up your relationship doesn’t mean you get to completely write off your partner. In fact, opening up a relationship might require you to put in more quality time with your loved one. Additionally, opening up the relationship requires a lot more coordinating with each other, communicating, and discussing each other’s needs and feelings. If you’re already too busy to do any of these things in a closed relationship, an open relationship isn’t going to make these things any easier.


Do You Trust Your Partner?

An open relationship is all about having trust. However, if you don’t trust your partner, it’s never going to work. If you’re struggling with being able to trust your partner, couples counseling will help. Having an open relationship means trusting that they’re telling you the whole truth. If your relationship is already on shaky ground, adding a new dimension will not help.


Even though many couples are exploring what it means to have a successful, happy relationship with monogamy, it certainly is not for everyone. Many couples think opening the relationship will solve all their problems. However, this just isn’t the case. If you and your partner are struggling to communicate, open up to each other, and trust one another consider couples counseling.

    I will love to share my testimony to all the people in the forum cos I never thought i will have my girlfriend back and she means so much to me. The girl I want to get marry to left me few weeks to our wedding for another man. When I called her she never picked my calls, She blocked me on her facebook and changed her facebook status from engage to Single, when I went to her place of work she told her boss she never want to see me. I lost my job as a result of this cos I couldn’t get myself anymore, my life was upside down and everything did not go smooth with my life. I tried all I could do to have her back to all did not work out until I met a Man when I travel to East to execute some business that I have been developing some years back. I told him my problem and all I have passed through in getting her back and how I lost my job, he told me he gonna help me, I didn’t believe that in the first place. But he swore he will help me out and he told me the reason why my girlfriend left me and also told me some hidden secrets’ was amazed when I heard that from him…he said he will cast a spell for me and I will see the results in the next couple of days..then I travel back, the following day and i called him when I got home and he said he’s busy casting those spells and he has bought all the materials needed for the spells, he said am gonna see positive results in the next 14 days that is Thursday. My girlfriend called me at exactly 12:35pm on Thursday and apologies for all she had done. She said, she never knew what she was doing and her sudden behavior was not intentional and she promised not to do that again. It was like am dreaming when I heard that from her and when we ended the call, I called the man and told him my girl friend called and he said I haven’t seen anything yet… he said I will also get my job back. And when its Sunday, they called me at my place of work that I should resume work on Monday and they gonna compensate me for the time limit I have spent at home without working…My life is back into shape have my girlfriend back and we are happily married now with a baby boy and I have my job back too. This man is really powerful…if we have up to 20 people like him in the world, the world would have been a better place…He has also helped many of my friends to solve many problems and they are all happy now…Am posting this to the forum for anybody that is interested in meeting the man for help. You can mail him to emagicp101@ gmail. com, I can’t give out his number cos he told me he don’t want to be disturbed by many people across the world…he said his email is okay and he also have a web site if you want to visit him there’ he will replied to any emails asap..Hope he helped u out too…good luck. His web site is ericaraventemple. webs. com
