Here's a tough questionlotterypick

Your happliy married, got great family, life is great.

You get ship wrecked with a moderate looking girl (20's).

Time passes, say a year (for those who are pretty strong) and you haven't been rescued, what do you do?
Is this something you are planning on arranging?ColnagoFE

What a strange question. If you're asking whether or not you'd sleep with her or not--my answer would probably be yes--probably sooner than a year if I didn't think I was going to be rescued. Go ahead...damn me to hell, but I think these would be extraordinary circumstances that traditional rules and vows go out the window after sufficient time has passed.
Damn you to Hell, I think not. I don't have that power.lotterypick

But if I did perhaps.

It's actually something that makes me wonder now and again.

I think I'd cave pretty fast (but I'd try to fight her off), as King of the Land and declaring a temporary marriage. I'm still a guy with needs, but would hope to have a good resolution.

It's troubling.
Not all that troubling. Even Christ himself was tempted.OldEdScott

Go easy on yourself, man. You'll blow a gasket. Just avoid real-world occasions of sin and let the idle fantasies take care of themselves.

If you need forgiveness, OldEd forgives you,
forgiveness from you?DougSloan

But you're a depraved, ammoral, commie, bleeding panty waste. Would it count? ;-)
There IS a certain irony, isn't there? :-) nmOldEdScott

My luck, it would be a lesbian. I guess the real dilemma would be hers, then. ;-)

This is one of those things you just can't decide in advance. The mere act of discussing it can cause problems.

might have to skip the first two.

would you sleep with her?rufus
Nov 25, 2003 11:05 AM
i'd say the answer to that is all her decision. cause no matter how much you might want to, and there's probably no question that most guys would want to, we all know who calls the shots in that department.

wouldn't that be a bummer, to be all alone on a deserted island and get rejected. :(
That would be about as low as it gets (nm)TJeanloz

I imagine your standards get pretty lowColnagoFE

If all you have is one possible partner you'll find a way to make her attractive. Look at prisons...many turn to homosexual relationships because there is no other choice.
yes, but what about hers? ;-) nmDougSloan

Hit close to home? Maybe this is what you mean...Fez

You're happily married, etc.

You happen to spend a lot of time at work or on bike rides with a moderate looking girl in her 20s.

Temptation is testing you. How do you handle it?
that's a no-brainer, if "happily married" nmDougSloan

I'm with youlotterypick
Nov 25, 2003 11:53 AM
The situation would have to look bleak.

I can handle the daily and weekly stuff. But we're talking a year and no outlook that you may be saved.

I'd have to build a bike and pedal really hard for really long. Not sure that would help, but it'd be good.
Worried about you, partner. nmOldEdScott

When you're all emotional and concerned for me.

Let's get back to politics.
Yeah, something meaningless and FUN.OldEdScott

Let's see, you bash me and I'll bash back. Back to normal!
True, but my bashing is in righteous anger. :)lotterypick

Have a great Thanksgiving my friend.

to be thankful for, Brother LP.
At that point, how do you know you're "happily married"TJeanloz
Nov 25, 2003 12:00 PM
You're presumed dead. Who's to say that your wife isn't "happily married" to somebody else?

That part of the movie "Castaway" really got to me...
Nah, as Billy Crystal saidTypeOne
Nov 25, 2003 12:22 PM
Sex would just complicate things. The relationship would fail, and before you both died from malnutrition, dehydration and exposure, you would have a big fight and she would refuse to speak to you. So you would die lonely.

Hey-Diddily-Do, Neighbor!

All of life's great questions can be answered by studying the words and actions of The Simpson's moral compass, Ned Flanders. I'm sure there is a relevant episode that covers this dilemma.

Actually, there is,TJeanloz

And though Maude is already dead, Ned is obviously still struggling with the thought of being "happily married" - even if his wife has passed away. He dates a famous actress [name escapes me], and, on a particular evening, can no longer resist the urge. Gives it up. Then declares himself to be like a Baskin Robbins - you can have one taste, but after that, you have to commit. And asks her to marry him. Which doesn't happen.
