Talk:affair

Definition from Wiktionary, the free dictionary
Jump to: navigation, search

"Affair" is being used consistently by different media outlets to describe the David Letterman scandal, even though by all indications he was not married when he had sex with employees. I've checked other dictionaries and they do not stipulate that the affair must be adulterous in order to be called such. 63.104.174.146 13:07, 5 October 2009 (UTC)

Right, so it's not always adulterous, it can just be casual sex then? Mglovesfun (talk) 14:09, 5 October 2009 (UTC)
That seems to be what other dictionaries say. I really don't know what the definition here should be, I was simply trying to leave a helpful note in case someone who did care about wiktionary would want to consider whether the listed definition was accurate. 63.104.174.146 14:43, 5 October 2009 (UTC)
