An affair is a sexual relationship or a romantic friendship or passionate attachment between two people, one man and one woman when in marriage.
Famous quotes containing the word affair:
“Time, which shows so vacant, indivisible, and divine in its coming, is slit and peddled into trifles and tatters. A door is to be painted, a lock to be repaired. I want wood, or oil, or meal, or salt; the house smokes, or I have a headache; then the tax; and an affair to be transacted with a man without heart or brains; and the stinging recollection of an injurious or very awkward word,these eat up the hours.”
—Ralph Waldo Emerson (18031882)
“Though the Jazz Age continued it became less and less an affair of youth. The sequel was like a childrens party taken over by the elders.”
—F. Scott Fitzgerald (18961940)
“An illicit love affair seems sweetly old-fashioned in the age of one night stands and orgies.”
—Mason Cooley (b. 1927)
