Resolved Question: I stabbed my imaginary
So we were playing some poker together and my imaginary friend kept losing. I teased him, but he got really mad and we got into a fight. After a while, I stabbed him to death. I am wondering though; will I get charged with first-degree murder for this?

Resolved Question: *HELP* Mistresses of a
I've heard a ton of stuff about King Henry the Eighth having mistresses. I've heard multiple definitions of a mistress, but which one is correct?
And if a king did have a mistress, would they announce it? Or if the King wanted one, would he publicly ask for one/announce it?

Resolved Question: In the 18th 19th and 20th
Historically a man "kept" a mistress. As the term implies, he was responsible for her debts and provided for her in much the same way as he did his wife, although not legally bound to do so. In more recent and emancipated times, it is more likely that the mistress has a job of her own, and is less, if at all, financially dependent on the man.
Madame de Pompadour, mistress of Nell Gwynne
Alexander VI, pope who kept mistresses
Mrs Howard, mistress of George II of England
Rachel Uchitel, mistress of Tiger Woods
Catherine the Great was the mistress of several men, because she chose not to share power with another man.
Lady Annabel Birley, mistress of James Goldsmith
There is clear evidence that having a mistress was the norm as outlined above. That this is historical and was accepted. Now those instances are not so far away from us in terms of years. A woman does not have to feel used by a married man, she has the ability to own her own. So why are we so startled by this behaviour? Why do we speak out against affairs? The married woman is being kept, as in Tiger Woods wife, she is not in need. So then why all this pain and shame and excitement over affairs?
