In the Netherlands, 3 to 4 percent of couples have an open relationship. This is stated by Joost Horstein, relationship therapist who specializes in polygamy and open relationships, in his Prevalence Report on Polygamy in Holland and Flanders. Therefore monogamy is still the norm in the Netherlands. An open relationship is definitely not for everyone, According to MAFS sexologist and psychologist Evelyn Stallart.
“An open relationship can be very nice, but in my practice I see it go wrong,” Stallart previously told Vrouw. According to Stallart, an open relationship has a greater chance of success if clear agreements are made in advance, if no one is jealous, and if you have no doubts about the idea of an open relationship. “If you doubt even a little, it is doomed. So I recommend that you think about it carefully and for a long time and start with caution as soon as you take the first step.”
