Revolving door is a political science concept used to the describe the phenomena in state capitalist societies where employees cycle between roles in an industry, and roles in government which influence that industry. Often these two roles overlap, with politicians/civil servants simultaneously being employed in the private sector. Political analysts claim a symbiotic relationship can develop between the private sector and sections of government, based on the granting of reciprocated privileges, a conflict of interest to the detriment of the nation. The revolving door concept is important in various political concepts, notably regulatory capture. The term is also more generally used for positions with high turnovers.
Casual relationship is an annotation used to describe the physical and emotional relationship between two people who may have a sexual relationship or a near-sexual relationship without necessarily demanding or expecting a more formal romantic relationship as a goal. It is more than simple casual sex, which has little or no emotional element, and different from a one-night stand, as the relationship extends beyond a single sexual encounter. Related terms are friends with benefits and f*&k buddies.
Civil ceremonies often allow couples to choose their own marriage vows, although many civil marriage vows are adapted from the traditional vows, taken from the Book of Common Prayer, "To have and to hold, from this day forward, for better for worse, for richer for poorer, in sickness and in health, to love and to cherish, till death us do part."
"Friends with benefits" extrapolate the abstract concept of the civil couple incorporating revolving door policies attempting to avoid high turnover when engaging in a modicum of simple casual sex; renewing the "good faith" contract traditionally during the holiday celebration of independence July 1-15 and on December 31.
