Study Shows Open Relationships = More Trust

New research suggests that couples who are free to date other people as part of an open relationship may actually enjoy higher levels of satisfaction and trust, and lower levels of jealousy, than those in monogamous relationships.

The findings come from a new study by the University of Michigan, which looked at different relationships among 2,124 people over age 25.

Participants were asked about the quality of their relationship with either one or both partners, depending on if they were in a monogamous or consensual non-monogamous relationship, and asked to rate the different relationship components of satisfaction, commitment, trust, jealousy and passionate love, which is the intense love feeling often described in new relationships.
