Not so long ago I spent a few years working abroad.
Being single and away from the rigid Indonesian norms, I began to date several expat workers in a neighboring country.
They were set to serve a 10-year prison sentence, of which they've already served over a year, the CBC reports.
The two teachers maintained their innocence throughout the trial.
A few of them became boyfriends whom I took to gatherings with fellow Indonesian “migrant workers”.
Others were just casual dates, with sex sometimes on the menu. My girlfriends weren't totally agreeing with me, but they accepted my adventurous behavior. I was surprised, because I did know the guy, but I didn't date him.
