@5 no way. I got my first laptop for about $600 in 2006. It wasn't for gaming - reliable gaming laptops were still pretty much in the future at that point - but it was good enough for any other use.

This isn't just a queer rights situation. It's retarded that at 11:59pm your relationship can be perfectly legal and at 12:01am the next day it can be a sex crime. Age of Consent in this country needs a serious looking-at. Probably the most logical thing would be a sliding scale based on difference between the ages, which is still arbitrary but less likely to result in this kind of bullshit.

@27 - There are already "reasonable regulations" of the first amendment. No matter how stringently your religion demands that you engage in human sacrifice, you just can't do it. More examples of regulations on the first amendment apply to the speech clause. Sedition, obscenity, libel, incitement, and harassment are all forms of speech that are deemed to not be protected under the first amendment. The press is regulated for these things as well, and there are many locations/situations where permits and regulations are placed upon the right to peacably assemble.

I'm a lifelong dog owner and all-animal lover, but I'd've done the same thing. A swat communicates to a dog that it is exasperating the swatter and essentially acts as a sign that it must back off or prepare to tussle. They do it to each other. My Siberian will thump our Golden on the head/face/shoulder/back if he's annoying her, and if he persists she'll get snippy. I wonder what those condemning Dan, like @26, think he should have done instead.

So basically Romney may be set to either piss off a bunch of grumpy old queens or the Log Cabin Republicans?

Where's the popcorn? This could indeed get interesting.

@31&34 ... wait. So he's meant to have automagically known before I even asked that I would ask that question, and have sent himself fake text messages well in advance (before even meeting me)? Because I'm pretty sure he didn't fake them in the ten seconds between me bringing it up and him getting out the cell phone, so it obviously wasn't faked after I asked.

Thank you, ankylosaur, for responding to 14, 15, and 26 more eloquently than I could and hitting the nail right on the head!

As to those asking how I know that my guy is not getting sexually fulfilled at home, good question. I asked it myself early on, because as has been observed, the man is willing to cheat on his wife, so his credibility is pretty much nonexistent. He pulled out his phone and showed me a text conversation he'd had about a week before he and I first spoke. In the course of an argument he mentioned that three times a year wasn't enough for him - she responded that it was "more than enough" for her.

To me, this demonstrated that not only was he unfulfilled, but he had approached her about this (more than once, based on the tone of the text messages) and she was flatly refusing to make any kind of effort to improve the situation for him. To me (and I'm pretty sure Dan has said the same in similar circumstances a couple times?) that puts this solidly into the realm of acceptable cheating.

Oh and @22, I highly, highly doubt his two and four year old know Daddy's up to something, and as far as I can tell (he still occasionally shows me texts between himself and the wife) he's being truthful when he says that things are much much better between the two of them than they've been since before the marriage started.
