The idea that men are the only ones who have trouble with monogamy is false, because according to a survey, by OpenMinded.com, an online dating site for open marriages, more women initiate open marriages than men.

Open marriage is defined as a marriage or relationship in which both partners agree that each may have sexual relations with the other.

In 2015, OpenMinded.com said, “One-third of married couples admit to cheating on their partner, while only five percent report being in an open relationship. 

A subculture of polyamorous couples is emerging from the ruins of failed traditional relationships and women are commonly the driving force in this shift.”

Why are women more likely to suggest an open relationship?

Where did Openminded.com get the idea that women are more likely to suggest changing their relationship to an open marriage?

They conducted a survey and asked over 64,000 couples (on their site) which partner had the idea to open their relationship.

Two-thirds of the couples answered that the woman wanted it first.

But is monogamy on the way out, or are monogamous relationships being restructured to fit a changing world?

Monogamy works for some people but it doesn’t work for everybody, and many couples are finding that traditional marriage isn’t the only way to have a relationship; there are open marriage options such as swinging and polyamory.
