When I first posted this recollection of a mid '70s affair I was attacked (what else?) for having been a profligate libertine. I replied as follows: We're living through a fairly conservative era right now. A whole lotta scolding going on. But in the mid '70s there was a distinction between what was regarded as casual infidelity and the serious, hurtful, real-deal kind. It may sound cavalier in today’s realm, but middle-class sexual mores were different in those days. A randy current.
