Welcome to the College of Sexual and Relationship Therapists (COSRT), the UK’s leading organisation for therapists specialising in sexual and relationship issues.COSRT exists to support healthy, satisfying and rewarding personal relationships.
The term "open marriage," coined by the late George and Nena O'Neill in their 1972 book of the same name, has been expanded as more couples choose to follow the concept without getting married.
Another term to describe one type of open relationship is polyamory -- literally, "multiple loves." Those who practice open relationships or polyamory often say they are "hardwired" this way and that laying the ground rules for multiple relationships spares everyone hurt and disappointment.
Not everyone agrees, with some therapists calling the polyamorous model a recipe for hurt, disappointment, jealousy, and breakups.
Today, people are increasingly getting together through online dating — especially if they're over 50.
Various studies have found that older adults are the fastest growing segment of online-dating services. So if you're looking for love, this can be an ideal option.
