Karam: You and Daniel have been dating for over a year. Are you guys thinking of tying the knot?
Raphaela: I’m not sure. Neither Daniel nor I believe in following conventions. We’re both open to an unconventional relationship.
Karam: What kind of unconventional relationship?
Raphaela: Many different kinds. We’re very open- minded.
Karam: Okay, for instance, would you guys be open to polygamy? Somehow I can’t picture either of you sharing yourspouse with someone else.
Raphaela: Well, no, I don’t think that would be right for us. The more people involved in a relationship, the more difficult it becomes, I think.
Karam: Then you wouldn’t be open to an open marriage.
Raphaela: That’s probably not something I’d want.
Karam: The only other unconventional marriages I can think of are arranged marriages and May- December romances. Neither of those applies to you and Daniel. Am I missing something?
Raphaela: Well, we’d be open to living apart. We’re both very independent and would want to retain that independence.
Karam: Ah, then there’s my answer. I know what kind of unconventional marriage you’d have.
Karam: A relationship without cohabitating? Dating.
