I don't have a copy of Ramayana handy at the moment but here is
what the dhobhi said to his wife in Bhagavata 9.11.9 (and note he is
directly comparing their relationship to Sita-Rama.)

If you want to translate paraveshagAm as something other than "consorting"
thats fine. The point was about monogamy or the lack of it.
