SO.....Yesterday after class I decided to stop by a popular restaurant in the Atlantic Station called Strip. It was warm outside and they have a nice patio dinning area but I opted for the bar instead. I was alone and the bar definitely left more room for a random chance meeting of Mr. Right; or, at the very least I could over hear some good conversations.
I took a seat at the far end of the bar. There were two brothers seated to my left and I made sure to leave room between us, but not too much... One had his lap top open and tuned into FB, he was clearly the younger of the two and was seated closest to me. The other was slightly older, mid-40's, very conservative, the husband type. I had my big shades on so I'm not sure if they knew that I noticed them watching me. I played aloof, of course, but all the while I was keeping my eyes and ears open.
After about 15 minutes the older guy, who we will call Phil, gets up to go to the bathroom, as he does his friend, Wayne leans over to me and says, "You know he likes you", and I say, "How is that? He doesn't even know me." When he returns from the bathroom, Phil and I exchange niceties and eventually he asks what I do. I tell him that I am a writer which seems to spark his interest. We all three then embark on a very stimulating conversation. We talk about my blog, relationships, polygamy, government, religion, the economy, etc...
During the course of the conversation both men had expressed their willingness and desire to have women outside of their marriage. Wayne even voiced his dismay at not being able to find a lover that would not ask him for too much of his time, or for him to leave his wife. As I put it, "Would be willing to except the leftovers that he was offering". To which he replied and I quote, "Exactly". I asked him why he desired someone else, what was he not getting at home? His simple answer, "Variety". When we discussed the topic of polygamy earlier in conversation, the men reacted at first with cheers, accolades. and delusions of grandeur as most do. When I brought to their attention that along with having multiple wives comes responsibility, accountability and it wasn't just all about them and/or 'VARIETY", Wayne quickly changed his mind. He stated that he would much rather have and I quote again a "concubine". I am not sure of either of the men's economical status but I am pretty certain neither was by definition wealthy and or a king or emperor. In history these are the type of men that we allotted concubines. Do you know why, because they could AFFORD them!
Now don't get me wrong, I am all for people being able to structure their relationships in a way that makes them truly happy. Granted that all parties are honest and in agreeance. However, being willing to risk your life partner for a little variety seems foolish to me, and wanting and assuming that a woman should be willing to accept your left overs and settle for what your really offering, SEX. is more then self serving it's down right arrogant. Because in most cases even when dating married men, women want time, affection, and love. Unless of course she is motivated by the one and only thing I think a married man can give his mistress….MONEY!
