CSUSB psychology professor discusses open relationships for column
Feb. 3, 2018

In the online website:

“As part of this month's Love Issue, in which we explore various aspects of modern love, we're tackling tough topics ranging from meeting someone online to navigating depression after a breakup in an effort to break down the social stigmas that surround relationships at every stage and in every form. To learn more about non-monogamous relationships, we asked Kelly Campbell, Ph.D., an associate professor of psychology and human development at California State University, San Bernardino, to weigh in on one of the most contentious dating questions: What is an open relationship?

“According to Campbell, an open relationship is one ‘in which both partners feel like it's an arrangement that they're comfortable with. Just as infidelity is defined differently for every couple relationship, [an open relationship is] an arrangement that both partners agree upon in terms of where the boundaries lie and what activities are acceptable,’ she adds.”
