Re: Sexual intercourse with other woman with the consent of wife

What about if you are out of town and you have an encounter with a woman that knows you are married. If your wife doesn't ask how bad would this be?? The op has a context of the couple both being involved in the discussion. So without that context it would be lying to the wife and a breach of that ...

Re: Sexual intercourse with other woman with the consent of wife

the op does not deal with that, as the situation as presented only indicates a discussion has been had between the two. That is up to those involved to consider. There are obviously potentially three people involved here, rather than two, unless they discussed the following: And again up to the cou...

Re: Sexual intercourse with other woman with the consent of wife

no, however that argument doesn't negate the situation being put forward. One where the conversation could easily have been brought up by the wife. This appears to still not change the lack of consideration about who & what will this other woman be and the consequences upon her. You seem to have th...

Re: Contemporary threats to free speech

I believe the alphie Evans situation involved threats of violence not just someone being called a name because they happened to work at the hospital and may or may not have been involved in the care of Alphie. I do not agree with threatening staff of the hospital. And, I also do not believe that all...

Re: Sexual intercourse with other woman with the consent of wife

lay people (what this thread is about) are part of the world... The term "the world" has different meanings. For example, just because sexual promiscuity, pedophilia or lying is practised by "the world" does not mean lay Buddhists should practise promiscuity, pedophilia or lying. no, however that a...

Re: Sexual intercourse with other woman with the consent of wife

Oh i am pretty sure this is a fact. I'm pretty sure what I wrote is also fact, namely, the ways of Dhamma are not the same as the ways of the world (Mara). lay people (what this thread is about) are part of the world, and this issue is relevant to a precept that deals with how a layperson should ac...

Re: Sexual intercourse with other woman with the consent of wife

being prohibited by law. I find this term is tricky, what does women who are "protected by law" mean? If the local laws prohibiting your sexual behavior, for example, no sexual intercourse outside marriage but you do it, does it mean you have sexual intercourse with those who are "protected by law"...

Re: Sexual intercourse with other woman with the consent of wife

Hi Steve. There are a couple of angles one can look at this from within the texts so I will deal with them. Acording to the wording of the precept and other textual explanations of the precept the situation is not a breach even without her permission. Although if the situation was reversed it would ...

Re: Sattva/Louise

Thanks everyone. I left this site quite awhile ago and I actually don't spend as much time online. I even got rid of my Facebook account. Health wise, I have had so many health issues and surgeries over the last few years, including one in September, one in October, and one in November. I almost di...

Firstly I'm not right wing.

Re: What's the appeal of "I disapprove of what you say, but I will defend to the death your right to say it"?

because defending a right need not do more about the opinion than show how it is covered by the right to express it. an atterney need not be a pedophile to defend someone who is accused of pedaphilia. Some people interpret it that way, though. Guilty by association. doesnt make the attourney guilty...
