  • In a relationship it means having a SO and a "friend" on the side. You get the best of both worlds so to speak.

  • I don't know i never understood it either. When i was told that i would "yes i can because if i eat it it is in my belly so techniquly i still have it". I think it is one of those things that means you can get what you want.

    "You've made your bed and now you have to lie in it". That is another one you can add to the list.

  • It essentially is a play on life's not fair, just because you can get something, doesn't mean you should really have it. Cake is also something like a treat maybe you shouldn't have.

  • Pertaining to marriage, it means having a husband or wife and an affair on the side. In other instances it means, going beyond the boundries of what is right and indulging oneself.
