Scenario A: Marriage

Two friends, Taylor and Alex, are enjoying dessert after a show at the local arts theater. Taylor draws your attention to a very cozy couple at a table in the corner. I wonder what show they watched, Taylor says with a smirk. You gasp and report that you know the woman (she is your neighbor), but the man is not her husband. Maybe theyre in an open relationship, Taylor remarks nonchalantly.
