I corrected the second definition, with a good edit summary. The current definition is both wrong and ridiculous. It's not gender-specific, restricted to married couples, or about going out. Strongly implying that married men typically need their wives' permission to go out makes it sound like wives are prison warders and husbands are prisoners. The actual meaning is temporary permission given to someone by their partner in a usually monogamous relationship to have sex with other people during a limited time period, such as for the duration of a holiday or a Bachelor party or Bachelorette party. The film Hall Pass has this concept at its centre. Jim Michael (talk) 08:18, 16 April 2018 (UTC)
