Open relationships seem to be increasingly more common, but the questions surrounding these arrangements are never-ending — particularly for the women involved. The general assumption when it comes to open relationships is that the woman is settling. That, rather than have her man cheat on her, she knowingly allows her partner to sleep with other women. And that leads to another question of whether women in open relationships are actually happy, or is it the man who reaps all of the benefits?

Check out this episode of Listen to Black Women as we discuss this touchy topic and whether open relationships actually work for women too. Watch and weigh in with your own thoughts in the comments section.
