“It is common for people to begin to experience difficulties regulating their emotions, they have intrusive thoughts, they feel vulnerable and they may also have memory and cognition problems”he adds.
But society has become more liberal and, to solve this, the possibility of have open relationships. Salgado assures that “The human being is capable of feeling love and attraction for more than one person at the same time”.
“Couples have conceptualized their relationship more openly and many reach agreements where they can date and have sexual intimacy with other people outside of marriage. As long as both people comply with the agreements of the relationship, it is not considered infidelity “, says the expert.
