Originally the term open marriage was understood as the individual freedom in choosing marriage partners. In 1972, Nena and George O’Neill wrote a book introducing a new meaning to open marriage as one in which each partner has room for personal growth and can develop outside friendships. One chapter which was 20 pages long was devoted to the proposition that an open marriage could include some forms of sexuality with other partners. Once they introduced sexuality into the open marriage concept and it entered into the cultural consciousness during the era of the Sexual Revolution, "open marriage" became a synonym for sexually non-monogamous marriage which then gained a life of its own.
