Let's not forget that the divorce rates have climbed significantly over time.
Maybe I should ask her on Valentines Day if she wants to become exclusive now.
Do you need to get it signed and notarized, or will a verbal contract be enforceable? Not because of any explicit agreement, but because we both chose to be and have been....
It's not a long term commitment, it's just to say that you each will not be dating anyone else going forward for a while.
Exclusivity is the period of time where you are now evaluating on a deeper level in order to determine the long-term potential and focus on each other.
But now we have more and more divorced couples who are feeling the burn of that experience.
