Yeah, but it's not exactly as if someone would say, "Well I was going to cheat on my spouse but I don't have a greeting card for my secret lover, so I can't after all." People are going to cheat, why not make a buck off of it?

I mean I do see your point, but I'm in cynical mode tonight.

I see what you're saying. And I somewhat agree. But there's something about making money by exploiting bad behavior that seems just a little wrong to me.

Though, as I said earlier: Anything for a buck, right?

Finally society is opening their minds a little.



JK. That's pathetic. truly pathetic. I'm starting to wonder when if Jesus is tempted to take back his promise about sending another flood

Very true . I do also see what XHendrix24 is saying, too.

Also, a good point raised about the gay marriage thing as well -yeah, really, talk about "sanctity" issues...

Drug dealers service a market. Let's drop the silly "it's society that's the problem" arguments.



Turning adultry into a card-worthy event is just another step in the decline of our society.

or, we could ask why people want drugs? why do people want to cheat?

is it merely the pursuit of a simple high or the thrill of sex with someone new?

or is it more complicated than that and can't be so easily chalked up to vague "decline of society" reasons?

Let's just hope her husband doesn't feel like "chipping in" to the family business.

I agree w/ that

Yes we should ask why people cheat and what the issues are in their marriages, but at the same time I don't think adultery is something worthy of being celebrated w/ a greeting card.
