Vanilla Forums has been nominated for a second time in the CMS Critic "Critic's Choice" awards, and we need your vote! Read more here, and then do the thing (please).
Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!

Isn't a marriage a commitment of two people to each other? Or is it actually a social contract, a bond by which the rest of us have to help enforce?
Everyone has a responsibility not to be a dick, and furthermore, to afford one another a basic level of consideration. This is your responsibility when deciding whether to become involved with a person who you know to already be in a relationship. Will you be having a deleterious effect on these people's lives? Is the person who wants to sleep with you clearly doing something they will regret? Or, like in bsjezz's case, is one of the people deeply unhappy and looking for an out? What will the consequences of your action be? You have to take these considerations into account.
You always have a responsibility to evaluate the consequences of your actions on those around you.
