It seems like everywhere I turn I hear people agreeing with this statement, but I don't necessarily think I agree with it.
I was watching a movie the other day and in one scene a woman asks a man she began dating, "True or False....All is fair in love and war?" The guy answered, "True." And she looks at him with joy and says, "Good answer!" I would have answered false.. (Now granted this guy might have just been telling her what she wanted to hear, but let's just pretend he was telling the truth)
Also, the other day I overheard two guys talking in a restaurant. One of the guys was talking about how he was in love with his best friend's wife and he was going to try and steal her away from him... He justified this by saying, "Hey, all's fair in love and war."
Now of course war is a more complex issue. I kind of go back and forth on this one, but I lean more towards disagree. Now granted it's kind of hard to be fair if the people you're fighting against aren't being fair, but as an ENFJ i'm just compelled to abide by this subjective code of ethics that are in me.. So I'm guessing that's why I lean more towards disagree.
What do you think?
Agree or disagree? Why?
