There seems to be one small problem with a contest that would pay $10,000 to an engaged couple — they can’t be engaged in premarital sex.
How else to explain that in this sinking economy, no one has stepped forward to enter the Marriage for a Lifetime contest?
Did we mention the cash prize? Or the free flowers, the invitations and other bridal goodies?
The Oct. 31 deadline is fast approaching — but so far, no entries.
Got that? It’s not that no one has met the qualifications, it’s that no one has entered it. Of course, it may not even be about the no sex part. The would-be winners also have to promise to not serve alcohol at the reception and to let up to 100 strangers attend the wedding.
I think it goes without saying that alcohol is a an award that the guests deserve and that couples that won’t let their own family members attend the wedding (ie, anyone below 18) are not going to be too keen to letting complete strangers show up.
And speaking of weddings, how would you like to be this best man?
I don’t think the term “doghouse” even begins to cover where that couple probably wanted to stick the ‘best’ man.
