Mo'Nique & Sidney's Open Relationship

Mo'Nique & Sidney's Open Relationship

Open Relationship is a play on words referring to Mo'Nique's announcement to publications that she and her husband of close to 10 years, Sidney Hicks, have an Open Relationship. Though the real intent behind her statement refers to their long history together, their Open-Minded Relationship simply means that something like an extra-marital affair wouldn't be a deal breaker to their marriage. They build upon the public discussions surrounding this concept to explore the openness and communication that is necessary for us all to have better relationships with others, in anything including Open Relationships, Falling in Love, Discussing Sex with Our Children, and everything in between. As Mo'Nique & Sidney would say, "The mind is like a parachute; it’s no good unless it's open.”
