A young couple decides to get married, everyone is happy and excited to begin this new jurney, to stop being two completely independant souls and begin to function as a family unit. Friends and family rejoice and the Bridal Shower gets planned. Now, I can see the reasoning behind having a bridal shower, it’s a way for friends and family to help the young couple get a good start for their life together.
I got to thinking about that and I think we’re having the shower at the wrong time in this couples life. What we need are Divorce Showers! I mean, when you get together, you’re not really missing anything, don’t get me wrong there are plenty of luxuries that would make both of your lives imesurably better. Think of how much better eveyone’s life would be if we ALL had a juice make, a waffle maker, a new set of dish towels with pretty pink flowers on them that will only match the decore in your grandmother’s kitchen. Those are life enhancing items people. But you didn’t have them before, so you’re probably not missing them.
A few years go by and about 50% of those couples start the process of getting divorced. Assuming all goes to plan and no one is really vengeful, you’ll only lose about half of your stuff. Now, you’re thinking… I miss my juicer or waffle maker (I hope that’s not true). To top it all off, you’ve also spent money you don’t have on lawyers, moving, shrinks, stiff drinks, smokes, etc. So the last thing you can afford to do is go out and buy furniture, appliances, towels, etc. to replace the ones you lost.
Enter the Divorce Shower! And wham, all of your friends and family help you get back on your feet, best of all, there’s usually cake at these thing 🙂
I think it’s a good plan, I’m going to contact Hallmark and see what we can do about this.
Who’s with me?
