Three blissful years. That's what Ronke and Sean had had. It was neither perfect nor completely void of the of the usual misunderstandings inherent in romantic relationships. But it was three years of a beautiful, committed relationship and everyone was waiting patiently to watch them walk down the aisle. Everyone except Bola.
Bola comes into the picture and although very aware of Ronke, has her heart set on Sean. Sean is being nice and is quite fond of Bola but makes it clear he's in a relationship. Bola really likes Sean and thinks she has a chance with him.
Her friend says "but he's in a relationship nau", Bola responds saying "There's no ring on his finger, therefore he's fair game".
I've had this argument so many times that I've lost count. They may not be married but they're in a committed relationship that you are aware of. So that makes them not fair game. But I just read this somewhere "I can’t say it enough, call me whatever you want but the truth remains, in my books, everyone remains fair game until they say their vows on an altar before God", so it seems I may be alone in my thinking.
What's your take on "poaching" someone in a relationship? Are they fair game or nah? Have you done that before, did you feel guilty about it? Do tell.
