Came across an interesting convo on Facebook where a girlfriend who is getting married next month was bitching about the plans her beloved husband-to-be has been making with his buddies for a bachelor party. He wants to take 7 of his best friends out of town for a weekend and have a wild and crazy weekend. At first he was talking about flying everyone to Las Vegas for the weekend, but that got too expensive (or, as she put it, complicated). So now they are talking about going to Atlanta, which is a 4 hour drive and a lot cheaper than flying 7 people round trip to Vegas.
The bride is pissed off that they are going out of town – she thinks that they should just party here at home and that going to a strip club is a bad idea. She says she doesn’t want her hubby-to-be in a strip club. Now, this is where it gets crazy. I think that a strip club outing is a healthy outlet for guys and there is nothing wrong with it. She says that he shouldn’t be interested in looking at naked girls – that she should be enough or he shouldn’t be getting married.
I think that is really naive and unreasonable. It is an American tradition to take the groom out to a strip club for a last hurrah. Its not like she is going to be having sex with the strippers. He might get a lap dance, but big fucking deal. If he is pledging his sexual loyalty to her, she should be trusting him. And maybe she is right, if she doesn’t feel that she can trust him, why are they getting married in the first place?
