My, My TMI

1. Define “infidelity” as it relates to a relationship. Have you ever been guilty of infidelity? Have you ever been the victim of infidelity? Have you ever been a participant in someone else’s infidelity?

I can only speak for myself and my relationship, but we define infidelity as breaking the bonds of our romantic and family commitments, specifically that he and I only share the most intimate acts and details of our lives with each other. This includes sex, but also the emotional aspects of intimacy, such as confidences and love. To break any of these things would be to break trust which would break down our family.

Yes, we share secrets and stories with our friends and family, but primarily we come to one another, draw on one another. If either of us were to count on others more for such private thoughts, or tell others things we wouldn’t ever share with one another, well, that would signal large problems if not infidelity.

2. What is the last thing you stole?

A very ugly comb and lib balm, back as a freshman in college (and that was 1982). We were sort of doing a Breakfast at Tiffany’s thing in the local dime store.

I also find it rather telling that the question is ‘what is the last thing’ rather than ‘have you ever.’ *wink*

3. Name on place in your country that you have never been but would like to visit and why.

Wow, there are so many… To be honest, though, I’d like to go to Florida again more than see someplace new. My husband’s never been on a plane, seen the ocean or Disney — and neither have 2/3 of our kids. I’d like to fix that. That would be heaven, there on the gulf side, Boca Grande. With at least one day at Disney.
4. When movies can you watch over and over again?

Breakfast at Tiffany’s
Forever LuLu
Modern Girls
The Women
Thelma & Louise
What Dreams May Come

And anything with Marilyn Monroe in it.

5. Who is the last person you saw naked?

Hubby and I took a shower together this morning and I’m not sure if I saw him last or me… Being honest, I’d have to say it was me.

Bonus (as in optional): In honor of the 237 reasons we have sex study. Tell us at least five but not more than ten reason you have had sex.

I have sex:

to celebrate my joy of, and love with, my husband

because I’m aroused

because I feel alive and that seems one of the very best ways to celebrate the life force

because I’m sad

because he asks
