Mutual understanding

We like to believe that it's impossible for one person to be in love with more than one person at a time. Although it's a noble notion, what if it doesn't apply to all individuals? What if love is much greater than relationship? What if there's a limit on the number of relationships we have but none on the number of people we love? What if some people are capable of loving more than one with justice done to all the parties involved? After all, isn't the very concept of love as an expression and idea unique to each? What if that disgusting word called affair attests to a person's capacity to juggle emotions? Morals hurt, yes, but aren't we expecting everyone to be constrained to our assumption of what and how love should be? Although physical exertion is no match to the celestial nature of love, aren't some men capable of gratifying three women at the same time while most can't please even one? What if we don't understand love as fluently as we understand lust? That would explain the mess we usually find ourselves in.
