Last week I mentioned I felt like I had been drinking the haterade and this week doesn’t feel much different.
To be honest, it’s been a challenging week and there has been more tears and less sleep that I would have liked. Yes, I’m doing okay, it’s just been a challenge. I’m thankful I have a great employer that gave me the day off on Tuesday, and wonderful friends who love and support me.
Now, enough about my week.
This picture is of a promo being run by a local radio station.
And you know what? It rubs me the wrong way.
Very much so the wrong way.
After having personal experience in how fragile a marriage can be, this really really bugs me. And this contest!? Just trivializes the whole damn thing. Right now, if you get married, there’s a 40-50% chance you won’t make it. Think about that. How many things would you do if you knew you had a 50/50 chance of failure?
I certainly didn’t get married thinking I’d get a divorce; heck, it wasn’t even an option for me. And yet, a radio station thinks it’s okay to get married and then, 90.3 hours later get divorced?!
That just hurts my heart.
I get that being extreme and creating controversy creates ratings, but do we really need to trivialize marriage in order to get those ratings?!
Unrelated: Miley Cyrus. Really?!
Given the laws around divorce in Canada (you must be separated for 1 year before one will be granted) I suspect this won’t be a legally binding marriage, but regardless or the legality or not, I find the entire concept behind this deplorable.
Tell me: What are your thoughts on this contest? Does it rub you the wrong way like it does me?
