  • People in open relationships are no more sexually or emotionally satisfied than monogamous couples, study finds

    People in open relationships are no more sexually and emotionally satisfied than monogamous couples, new research suggests.

    As long as couples have sex to be close to each other or to fulfill their desires, there is no difference in how content people are with their partners, a study found.

    Those who get intimate for less personal reasons, such as to avoid an argument, are less likely to be happy in their relationships regardless of whether it is open or monogamous, the research adds.

    Lead author Jessica Wood, from the University of Guelph, said: 'We found people in consensual, non-monogamous relationships experience the same levels of relationship satisfaction, psychological well-being and sexual satisfaction as those in monogamous relationships.

    'This debunks societal views of monogamy as being the ideal relationship structure.'

    Up to seven per cent of people in the US are in open relationships and as many as 48 per cent in the UK are interested in being polygamous.
