Usage of Hyphens


I am studying about usage of hyphens and I was wondering if the rule is consistent or optional and different, depending on people and countries? For example, "open-minded" is used with a hyphen in "She is very open-minded", but we also can find an example without a hyphen. So do you think the usage of hyphens is always the same and consistent?


Thank you so much as always and take good care.
