Wisdom from Koepke v. Loo, 18 Cal. App. 4th 1444 (1993). The full quote:
While casual sexual relationships may not be regarded as keystones of current societal value, they nevertheless have their obvious advantages. One of them is the potential of termination of the relationship without regard to consequences. We would not want to write an opinion imposing on excohabitants a continuing obligation of control of the conduct of discarded lovers.
“Discarded” is such a harsh way of putting it.
