Is being in an open relationship, in an intimate relationship, practicing open mindedness? How?
I have talked to some people in the past and they tell me that being in an open relationship is the ultimate form of open mindedness if you want your spouse or partner to be happy.
I personally don't understand how that is actually being open minded, but just a personal preference, though I think an open relationship is troublesome in the long run.
Isn't being in an open relationship another way of saying "I like you right now, but if someone else that is better than you comes by, then being in an open relationship allows me to pursue both of you or dump you for the other person"?
