Yes, it could cause problems. Depends on the law where you are. You may want to search this forum as this particular challenge has been discussed at length and is a very serious concern.
As a non parental husband I don't have a problem telling people I am open. I just tell them and they accept it. I haven't hit any serious back lash personally.
