if you have a relationship with another person while in an open relationship is that called cheating or an affair? Or is t simply an extra relationship? Serious question here.

I would certainly say that it is not cheating (although I magine the development of an emotional relationship would be).
Not sure what the official term is for extra partners however.

I suspect it would be called an additional relationship.
Cheating involves lying, deception, and secrecy.
In fact the underlying definition of cheating is "breaking the rules".
If a couple has decided NOT to have a monogamous relationship then having sex with others would not be "breaking the rules" in (their) relationship. Every couple gets to define their own relationship.
If it was agreed on it ! wouldn't be if no one was pressured into it, but in my opinion no one would get anything out of it.the best part about everything in a relationship, is that it's special.
