Summary

A practical guide for creating nontraditional relationship agreements that work - from a certified sex therapist and relationships expert.

Love is eternal - but our concepts of relationships and marriage evolve to fit the times. In an age when we live longer, communicate differently, and value gender equality, is it any wonder so many people are looking for new ways to support lasting, loving partnerships? "Monogamy is no longer a simple concept," says Dr. Tammy Nelson. "More couples every year are experimenting with open relationships and newer, more flexible versions of commitment...yet few of us have been prepared with the skills we need to make those agreements work."

Open Monogamy is Dr. Nelson's guidebook for couples who wish to explore new directions in their relationships - to bring in excitement, variety, and fresh experiences without sacrificing trust, security, and respect. In this practical, skill-based book, she helps you find your place on the "monogamy continuum"; have honest conversations about attraction and desire; remove shame and suspicion from an open relationship; and create agreements - traditional or otherwise - that are fulfilling, exhilarating, and built for enduring love.

Very eye-opening and informative.

Highly Recommend for anyone even considering opening their relationship/marriage. Gave me some new perspective and made me not feel like I'm going crazy.

People, listen: THIS is the book you need

I've read a half a dozen books related to ethical non-monogamy and poly lifestyles, but this one hit all the right spots. The author even delves into what drives people into wanting what they want and provides relatable interviews with couples in various points in their relationships.

Overall great author and amazing read that went in depth where some other books seemed to just scratch the surface.

Good material

I was really looking forward to getting and hearing this book. This is the first time that I seriously thought about returning a book. The voice of the reader is almost mechanical at times, and so distracting, but the material is quite good.
