Assuming exclusivity

Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,323 The Mix Honorary Guru
A friend was in a relationship, during which he occasionally had sex with other girls. When his girlfriend found out about one of his hookups, she angrily ended the relationship - saying that he had cheated on her. He pointed out that they'd never said that they were exclusive, so they were both free to have sex with other people. It was therefore impossible to cheat in their relationship. She said that they were exclusive, because exclusivity is the 'default setting' - and that in order to not be exclusive, they'd have to have agreed to that.

Why do some people wrongly assume that their relationship is exclusive, when neither of them had said that they were?
