2. A heterosexual relationship or marriage in which the female engages in sexual relations with multiple partners and somehow talks the male into accepting this. The male partner in such a relationship is known as the patsy or victim. This person may speak openly about being "in an open relationship," but generally does not himself pursue alternate partners. The male in these cases is almost always a dutiful idiot, often a SNAG, who sits at home and develops a potentially deadly ulcer, while his partner gets nasty with every dude she can. This type of male is also known as a man-bitch.
The Open Relationship is exclusively dominated by the female. Normal men who wish to pursue multiple sex partners remain single or cheat. This does not include so-called swingers, a sub-class of perv.
The Open Relationship is, more often than not, a precursor to divorce, or occasionally to homicide.
