The Art of Open Relating Volume 1: Theory, Philosophy, & Foundation explores the many dynamics of open relationships and what anyone should consider before considering this relationship style. What’s also defined is the difference between open relationships, monogamy, polyamory, and polygamy. It’s of critical importance we understand the various relationship dynamics and their accurate definitions so we can make the best choices for our own personal relationships.

Learn about the many open relationship structures and how they change and what we should be mindful of inside of each of these structures. This is critically important due to the fluid nature of open relationships. In addition, the individual profiles of people who participate in open relationships are also defined to support each participant in understanding some of the risk factors each person brings to the open relationship structures they’re participating in. How does a married couple fair versus someone who isn’t married? Why are guiding principles the backbone of open relating rather than rules and protocols that we find in polyamory? Why isn’t open relating for most people, but only a small minority of the population?

This book also offers some insight into the challenges with monogamy and even some strategies for monogamous couples to strengthen their bonds. Monogamy has some very specific characteristics that must be recognized and accounted for in order to avoid the traps leading to infidelity and divorce.

Learn the three phases of opening your relationship and why each phase is critical for success. Generally, the people who fail in opening their relationship have skipped one or more of these steps and instead jumped right in.
