I get an amazing number of press releases every day. Some are pertinent to the work I do for the UCC, some are loony and some are just funny/interesting. I received one today that was on the funny/interesting – sort of sad – side of things. A little of my own sarcasm is inserted below, so be forewarned…
You say you’re too busy to attend a traditional marriage preparation course?
Say you value your privacy and don’t want a professional prying into all the neurosis that are sure to sabotage this and all future relationships?
Then the good folks at theMarriageGroup have a great program for you.
No need to worry if you and your future mate have and overbooked double-carreer, see you when it’s convenient for me, lifestyle – you can complete this marriage preparation course in the privacy of your own home. There’s no need for your (might-be-)special(-when-I-find-the-time) someone to be in the same room with you.
Of course, honest discussion between you and your partner is the cornerstone of the program – but there’s no need to air any misgivings or acknowledge shortcomings in front of a total stranger! What good would that do anyway?
