Yes -- if both people agree that it's fine for each person to see/have sex with other people. It takes a lot of maturity and open mindedness to have that kind of relationship.

Some supposed "open relationships" are one sided--one of the people trying to get the other to accept them having affairs or indulging in threesomes. Basically, if you don't feel comfortable with the idea, tell then no.

An open relationship, as opposed to a monogamous relationship, simply means that one or both of the partners are not required to be sexually exclusive to the other. The exact nature of the rules regarding outside sexual partners varies from couple to couple.
