Indecent Proposal... would you allow this for 1million dollars?
September 4, 2008 8:48am CST
I had the privilege to watch an movie a few years back entitled INDECENT PROPOSAL. It was starred by Demi Moore, Robert Redford and Woody Harrelson. It was about a married couple who went to Las Vegas and gotten themselves a proposal for $1,000,000. The proposal was that to let his wife sleep with a multi-billionaire for a single night. Now, my question is this. Would you allow it? Try to think outside the box, after all, your wife or husband wouldn't really read your answers right? hehe.. If you were in their shoes, would you allow that and get $1,000,000 deposited in your account? Let's not do this out of greed. Let's say your house is about to be foreclosed, or a family member is seriously ill, or perhaps you are facing a large sum of debt and you'd be forced to be locked up in jail or something. Would you allow it?

NO NO..i would NEVER allow my husband to do such a thing even if he was ready for it.We cant be selling ourselves for something as tempting as that.It will haunt me forever and i can never forgive myself for letting him do that"just" for the sake of money even if it means losing everything.Id rather beg in the streets than let him sleep with another women for money.

Would he be less of a husband if he did so for the sake of something greater than his needs? I mean, yes, emotionally it would be torment to know that he had done such a thing, but if the purpose is higher than his own, well let's just say he is to sleep with a much much older and uglier woman, would that change your mind?

Oh yeah, anyone would agree with you when you said that you wouldn't if you can't live with it your whole life. It's really different when a relationship is tainted with such a situation, yes you can live but the memory would always be there and you'd be curious and guilty forever thinking 'what if my husband enjoyed her more than me?' Not to mention that you actually consented him to go sleep with another woman. Thanks.

I am going to be honest with you and say YES! For one that kind of money would send my kids to school, pay off my house, secure retirement for me and my husband. I know my husband feels the same way because we have talked about it! :) I also have a 10 year old daughter with learning disabilities and a heart condition and I am expecting another daughter (next week ) who has a series hear condition. I know I can't get health insurance for one (she is on SSI) I definetly won't be able to get it for the other and that kind of money would enable for me to provide for them.

Thank you for your honesty and courage. :) It indeed is something different when there's something 'above our personal needs' that's at risk, though the 'action' is quite unnerving, but the thought that it's for something that our family truly needs, it somehow shows us that it's quite possible. The discussion has made me realize that indeed there are people who'd be willing to do something 'out of the ordinary' for something greater than greed. Thanks for your response, and I hope that with the situation you and your family are in right now, your could work together and achieve the desires and happiness of you heart. God bless you and your family at all times.

I would deffently not do it or ask that my husband do it. I don't care how much money was involved. They could offer me 10x that I still wouldn't do it. They could take away my house. I don't care. It is wrong and I would never want to sleep with anyone else or want my husband too either. There are better ways to make money. If I needed it that bad, I would get a job or my husband would get a second job. Sleeping with someone other then your spouse is just wrong.

What if your partner would agree to it? Well, let's just say that your person thinks that it's okay because it's not love, it's just a night in return of something that would really help you both or your family. Anyway, most slept with other people before being married, so why not do it for a greater purpose? Plus, you need the money tomorrow, you can't really do with second jobs because it could take months or years for you to accumulate that money, what if, let's say it's someone's life, and that money could really help that someone you love.
