Would you consider this prostitution?

Lets say your are with a man for 10+ years and your man cheats on you and get another women pregnant, the women breaks up with this man but ends up forgiving this man because she loves him, their child loves him and because the man helps her pay the bills?

 

Because one of the deciding factors for her getting back with this man was for maney does this make it a form of prostitution.

"The "women" breaks up with this man.... Women makes that BOTH of them, and THEY apparently go back with him ... and love him ... not really prostitution, but, ending up with two women and supporting them and their children is, maybe, pushing the old Mormon thing a bit close.

Side: Yes it is prostitution.

True but one of the factors that helped her get back with the man is money wouldn't that in a sense be a form of prostitution?

Sure not in the sense like your average street walker but in the sense of being with someone and having sex with the man because the money is coming wouldn't you think?

Side: Yes it is prostitution.

Females of our species are known to select marriage partners on a spectrum of criteria. Wealth and power of the potential mate, translates into protection and stability. These are part of criteria female humans use in selection. With this understanding, your argument would categorize all male/female bonding as prostitution of the female in exchange for protection and security.

The definition of prostitution you have referenced, doesn't bother to mention the assumed surrounding factors, simply Sexual contact for money

1.) Without emotional attachment.

2.) Without long term bonding.

3.) Without intent to reproduce.

4.) Without motive other than pleasure -vs- money.

-

The ambiguity you point to stems from this incomplete definition.

Since when has child support been classified as prostitution........?

Because if one of the factors for her getting back with the man was needing money and in turn sex with him in time wouldn't that be a form of prostitution?

I mean you can still gain child support from the man without being with him and having sex with him wouldn't you think?

Side: Yes it is prostitution.

No. There are so many other factors at play to boil it down to prostitution.

I want some maney. .

Side: No it's not prostitution.

No, potentially a gold digger but not prostitution. Although, to be fair, shouldn't a women want to be with someone who is loving and a good provider (meaning financially secure)?

Side: No it's not prostitution.
