    Ok, So If I Willingly Share My Wife With Other Men Is This Cheating?

    I believe if you (the spouse) are willing to share your spouse with another that they are not cheating on you. Cheating is a state of mind---any thoughts?

    I actually love it. I'm captain of debate team

    at my school. It's fun to debate random topics and just be given one, because if I don't agree with it, it makes it more challenging, and I like challenge. It also gives the debate less a chance of being biased. But anyways, if you guys have a topic, I'd be happy to debate down...

    It Keeps the Grey Matter In Shape

    I have strong opinions on things,

    but I tend not to debate them unless I know enough about them. So instead, if I have a differing opinion, I'll present it in the form of questions to probe for more information. This way it is not combative, and allows people to be more open to an idea that conflicts with their...

    I love to debate. I am part of our school's debate circle. I feel that I'm myself when I debate with others. And most importantly it helps and trains my self confidence. Yet there are new members. And they are most likely to be very judgmental. So can anyone give me some...

    had in 4 years. Worthy opponent and I just spent a long time discussing something. And at the end of it, don't hate each other. The issue was unresolved. But that is often irrelevant.
