The following sentence conflicts in my head: "She [girlfriend] said we should both see other men".
The people in question are in a monogamous heterosexual relationship. Is this sentence correct?
I'll try to explain why I think it's conflicting.
"You should see (an)other man/men"
Meaning: The person in question is seeing (a) man/men, and should see (an)other man/men.
"We should both see other men"
Meaning: The people in question are both seeing men, and should see other men.
The "other" indicates that they are already seeing men.
So with that logic, the sentence "She [girlfriend] said we should both see other men" means that they are both seeing men already, and should see other men.
But they are not seeing other men already if they are in monogamous heterosexual relationship. So the sentence is conflicting in meaning and should be "She said I should see a man, and she needs to see another man".
Is my logic flawed?
(I'm a native Dutch speaker, maybe I'm incorrectly transporting Dutch language logic into this)
