Adultery: What Every Good Marriage Needs (sigh)
Posted by dalekuehne on August 21, 2012
In her book The New Rules, French scholar Dr. Catherine Hakim argues for the importance of adultery to a healthy marriage.
Newsflash: Scholars have just discovered that up is actually down, and down is actually up.
Teaching Moment: For those of you wondering what Immanuel Kant teaches about morality and the categorical imperative, here is a great example. One version of his categorical imperative can be understood as: Don’t engage in an activity such that if everyone did it, it would make the activity impossible.
If we all followed Dr. Hakim’s advice, it would render marriage and adultery meaningless.
There is, however, nothing new under the sun.
In those days there was no king in Israel and everyone in Israel did was right in their own eyes. Judges 21:25
I’m lookin’ for a chick that wears a ring
Cause one night stands are my thing
Your marriage means nothin’ to me
I’m totally into adultery
It’s our secret between just you and me
That we’re into committing adultery
Adultery by The Mentor from Up the Dose (1986)
