What do you think?

I love it when my sister emails me funny stuff.
She sent me things celebrety's have said. Some I
posted in sayings and such. But this one I felt
deserved some thought. What if, I wondered,would
it be like if this were actually done?

"Relationships are hard. It's like a full time
job, and we should treat it
like one. If your boyfriend or girlfriend wants
to leave you, they should
give you two weeks' notice. There should be
severance pay, and before they
leave you, they should have to find you a
temp." --Bob Ettinger

Would things be better or worse then they are now?

LMAO! That would even further complicate things.

"they should give you two weeks' notice". It would create more stress.

"There should be severance pay": In a relationship you do not owe anything but respect. Child support is different, it is called responibility.

"before they leave you, they should have to find you a temp". Do you really want someone else to decide to hookup with?

No, it would not be better in my opinion.


Take care.
Keep On Blogging!!!! Have a great day.

Hi Keithcancook;
I am glad you can see the humor of those requirements. And of course
how could it ever be enforced? But for me, what rings true is that a
relationship does require work. And that is where superficial
relationships fail, while deeply rooted ones continue. And anything
worth having is worth working for.

Cajun Pet;

LOL Did you actually think I was avocating those requirements?

"What if, I wondered,would
it be like if this were actually done?"

Sometimes it helps to see things from a different angle to appreciate
the value that it holds.
