    Cool affair


    Does the term "having an affair" necessarily mean having love relationship with a married man or woman, or can it also be dating an unmarried man or woman?

    Re: affair

    It is generally the illicit relationship of a man/woman and a married person. I have occasionally seen it to refer to a relationship that is not approved of by the girl's parents.
