I was discussing my martial status with someone recently and happened to mention the term exposure, specifically relating to financial exposure given current laws associated with marriage (in NY). They were rather shocked by my use of the word exposure and did not seem pleased that I would use such a word when talking about the emotion of "love". I tried to explain that numbers are my thing, and given my profession I see the same scenerios play out over and over again, etc. There was no reasoning with this person. Apparently I am forever jaded and completely fucked up... LOL So any thoughts or opinions? Can the topic be reduced to concepts such as exposure?
