In Light of Re­cent Events

The Monthly (Australia) - - FRONT PAGE - BY OSLO DAVIS

A re­cent New York Times sur­vey re­vealed that men and women were “wary of a range of one-on-one sit­u­a­tions” with some­one of the op­po­site sex who was not their spouse. Pri­vate work meet­ings and go­ing out for drinks were “in­ap­pro­pri­ate” and re­quired “ex­tra cau­tion”. But what about one-on-one sit­u­a­tions with some­one of the op­po­site sex who is their spouse? How much do cou­ples ac­tu­ally en­joy the com­pany of their be­trothed in spe­cific sit­u­a­tions? To find out, I con­ducted my own sur­vey.

{Num­bers in­di­cate the % of wives and hus­bands who said they “en­joy the com­pany of their spouse” in these sit­u­a­tions.}
