In general, if you're going to "go there" (romantic RP), you immediately necessitate at lease one businesslike RL discussion.As a male RPer, not wanting to be "that guy", I 100% fully and completely reeefuuuse to ever RP escalating romance with someone who has told me they are attached or married IRL. Game over, story altered, not going there. Those I have "attached" my characters to have been told that we will re-evaluate the story we have made the second, the moment I am aware that they have become attached/married IRL.Not being a homewrecker>RP continuityThat's just how I role

It sounds like you don't trust other people to put up good boundaries.

I can certainly see where that would be percieved, but my angle is this:Even if I know the person I'm playing with on a familiar-enough-for-RP level, I likely don't know their RL partner, and I'm sorry, I don't mess around with variables like that given what may be at stake. I've seen it lead to disaster too many times as a LARPer. You might call it distrust, I see it as erring on the side of caution, out of respect for their home life.That's just how I role :)
