Talk:fidelity

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

I am nonplussed to find no adjectival form of fidelity in any of a number of online dictionaries, including Dictionary.com, Urban Dictionary, Merriam-Webster.com, OneLook, FreeDictionary.com, and Wiktionary. I always thought fidelitous to be a perfectly good word, but now I'm left to wonder. I checked Google Books and found 46 books with the term in their pages, several with copyrights between 1926-1964. Google itself registers 945 hits on the word, often related to fidelity in marriage or sound engineering. Any thoughts on the matter? Yea or nay? --Pnoble805 00:04, 30 November 2008 (UTC)

Maybe the OED has it. It seems like a real word to me. If you have done that kind of research for a word, feel free to enter it at WT:REE. DCDuring TALK 20:46, 10 December 2008 (UTC)

What should be done with the extramarital affairs definition?[edit]

Yeah, it's been a problematic bit. I wouldn't mind leaving it as it is now, but I gotta let you know, there still is a problem: open marriage is an arrangement where each spouse is free to pursue sexual relations outside the marriage, but you have to consider cases where one spouse is given permission while another isn't.
