It’s no surprise tons of people are getting married Friday, 08-08-08.
In China, the number 8 is considered lucky, much the way 7 is in Western cultures. Apparently, even Americans are getting on the Asian bandwagon and getting hitched Friday to infuse some luck into their marriage.
Why not, I guess. The reasoning goes even with divorce rates down (they hover now around 36 percent), marriage is work. Love may be easy, but living with someone day in and day out isn’t. Arguing over who has to do the dishes or whose laundry is on the floor gets old after awhile. Anything that might make it easier can’t hurt. Right?
Quite frankly, I’m a big believer in making your own luck, especially in relationships. Sure, in other situations like the work world it might play a bigger part, but relationships take work. Luck… maybe not so much.
However, I’m all for finding an anniversary date the hubs can remember.
If he forgets 8-8-08, there are some problems.
