Today I was watching "The Doctors" and they were talking about varying degrees of a "Hall Pass" in a relationship. They discussed 6 degrees of the hall pass.
1. Would you let your partner have a girls/guys night out?
I don't think this is really a "hall pass." I want my partner to have friendships outside of our relationship. We can't spend every moment together. I would let my partner have a guys night out. I think they need to have space. I wouldn't let my partner stop me from going out with my friends. Whatever they do I would like to trust that they are being good and not crossing any boundaries.
2. Would you let your partner go to Vegas alone?
I don't think this is giving a "hall pass" either. Couples can't always get off of work at the same time so sometimes their vacation comes at a different time than yours does. My partner can go to Vegas without me. We won't always be available to travel together. I would trust them to be good and not do anything stupid while they were there.
3. Would you let your partner have a drunken kiss with someone else?
No. I don't want a partner who goes out and gets drunk. They shouldn't be putting themselves in positions where something like that could happen.
4. Would you have a threesome?
No I wouldn't have a threesome. I don't want to share my partner.
5. Would you let your partner have sex with someone else?
Heck no! I would only practice monogamy. Once we are exclusive they shouldn't be sleeping with anyone else.
6. Would you have an open relationship?
No I wouldn't. I only believe in monogamy. I don't want to share my partner with someone else.
Would you let your partner have a "Hall Pass?" What degrees of the "Hall Pass" are you comfortable with?
