There are three must-have talks before diving into an open relationship.

Over the course of the past few years, open partnerships have expanded in popularity and gained more social acceptance. Your decision to give it a shot, along with that of your partner, is commendable.  

However, a marriage or partnership that is open to both partners cannot simply occur overnight. Making the abrupt transition from monogamy to polyamory without first engaging in sufficient planning and contemplation is a recipe for failure.  

 Different varieties exist, even without names. Are you seeking polyamory? Do you wish to meet your partner's "other lovers"? How much contact information should these others get...

 1. What kind of relationship do you want?  

Have you considered a swinger or threesome to spice up your love life? Maybe you want a "don't ask, don't tell" policy where you can be intimate with others while traveling as long as you don't talk about it.

2. Establish rules  

There are a lot of things that can take place in an open relationship that you will probably not have considered. Planning beforehand can help you avoid causing major emotional distress or unwittingly betraying the person you care about.  

the very beginning, it is important to determine what you are both comfortable with, whether it be emotionally or personally. It is up to you to decide whether this relationship should be kept private in the bedroom or whether it should be shared on social media.  

3. Finally, decide what to tell the kids.  

Discuss how/when/if you'll tell your kids about daddy and mommy's special pal. You can't dodge this forever. Because youngsters are more perceptive than you realize and will recognize this individual as exceptional.  

As a marriage and parents, you must decide how much kids need to know to avoid overexposing them to adult or private concepts while maintaining honesty.
