Who want to get married and live happily ever after? Learn how not to do it on this episode. Slow dialog: 1:08 Explanations: 3:13 Fast dialog: 12:38 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 your spouse 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. Raphaela: What? Karam: A relationship without cohabitating? Dating. Script by Dr. Lucy Tse
