About This Quiz

In most relationships, if one of the people involved comes out and says that they want to have an open relationship, it would be the kiss of death. But every relationship is different, and nothing really is wrong when it comes to what a couple wants, as long as the people involved are honest with each other. 

An open relationship is a lot different than cheating. If you were to cheat, then you would be getting in bed with someone behind your significant other's back and lying to them about it, while if you are in an open relationship, you would be doing it while telling them all about it. In fact who knows, maybe they would be there with you while you were doing it!

Now before you go and ask your partner if they would be cool if you wanted to have an open relationship, there are a few things you have to think about. For one thing, they would be sleeping with other people too, and for another thing, they might dump you immediately when you bring it up, because to a lot of people the whole thing is just plain weird. Are you one of those people, or are you ready to be in an open relationship? Take this quiz to find out.
