A Thought for Every Thursday – How you gonna roll?

Welcome to A Thought for Every Thursday.

Every Thursday we’ll pose a question (or several) regarding a specific current event, a modern moral issue, or a philosophical conundrum. Instead of answering it myself, we look to you for the resolution.

It’s all in good fun.

Here we go…

 * * *

In the modern world we live in, many different people have many different ideas about how to be romantic, whether or not to get married, and how to handle intimate relationships.

If you asked a room of 100 different people, you might get 99 different opinions regarding the ‘right’ way to do things.

What if we simplified the equation?

What if we asked you how you like to get around…?

Getting Around

 

From the following scenarios, choose the most appealing to you:

  • Be happily married to one person for your entire life. Never once have an affair
  • Be happily married for twenty happy years, but also enjoy a twenty-year period of single-dom, during which you have sex with at least ten different partners
  • Never be married. Have as much freedom and as many different sex partners as you desire
  • Insert a different answer here _________________

Well?

Past A Thought for Every Thursday entries are right here.

If you like these kinds of questions, try these on for size.

If you prefer something gentler, go here.

See you next Thursday!

  1. Marriage is something I’ve never had, so answering so clearly on if it’s the end all be all, can’t say. I’m not the cheating type, so that’s out.
    In the single world – if you have only had unfulfilling relationships, I think more than anything else, you strive for the real thing.
    I will answer other. I want to find someone who just works. I’m their biggest fan and they are mine. And no not Hollywood made up romantic bs (unless it’s John Cusack waiting outside my window with a boombox).
    No clue if it’s out there. But I would like to think that after a lifetime meh, there is something better out there. Hope that’s not too sappy 😉

  3. If John Cusack were outside my window, I’d totally fall for him, too.
