Blindness to Noncommitment

DAVE’s FORMER COLLEGE roommate, Frank, is living with his girlfriend, Tina. Dave sincerely hopes Frank and Tina eventually get married. Dave and some of his other college friends visited Frank and Tina in their condo on Friday night and they all had a good time.

On Saturday, Maria and Dave were invited to a birthday party for Maria’s fouryear-old niece. It was a fun event, with many activities for the ten young children Maria’s sister-in-law had invited to the party. Of course, there were screams of delight as children played the games that had been arranged. After the party, Maria and Dave went out for an early dinner, followed by a movie. They were going to see a new movie that had premiered the week before about a man who maintains one family in Boston and another, complete with second wife, in Calcutta. Dave was not wild about seeing it, but Maria says it’s funny.

Because part of the movie takes place in India, Maria says it will be fun to go to an Indian restaurant she knows. They are having a great time at the restaurant and, of course, they talk about many disparate topics as they catch up on what each was doing the previous week. As they are eating some strange dessert that was tasty but not great, Dave mentions that last night he and some friends got together with Frank and his girlfriend Tina. He said the couple has a great condo in the Downtown area. Maria knows Frank, but not well. Frank was in a wedding party with Dave, and along with Maria they all interacted at the reception. But she has only been with him three or four times.
