My new found obsession is weddings… and on one forum this make me damn angry to read “…cliché stag party, with everything that can happen when you’re intoxicated (and everyone knows you do stuff when you’re drunk you would never do sober…).”
No no no… no. They are the same things, you just blame them on being drunk. It impairs judgement, but you would have still had that thought sober. Hell you may haven even done it, but found a better way to cover it up. Don’t be that stupid. If your SO cheats on you at his bachelor party its not because he’s drunk. If he gets arrested because he came on to a stripper too strong, it is not because he is drunk. Don’t be stupid.
Speaking of bachelor parties… http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bachelor_party :
A bachelor party (Canada, South Africa and the US), also known as a stag party, stag night or stag do (especially in Commonwealth countries and Ireland), a bull’s party (South Africa), or a buck’s party or buck’s night (Australia), is a party held for a man shortly before he enters marriage, to celebrate his “last night of freedom” or merely to spend time with his male friends, who are often at his wedding party afterwards. A bachelor party is usually planned by the best man or other friends of the groom, occasionally, with the assistance of a bachelor party planning company.
Increasingly, bachelor parties have come to symbolize the last time when the groom is free of the influence of his new wife.
HAHAHA, really please work on your relationship if this is what your bachelor party represents. IF they had said something about the increased feeling of responsibility of having a “new” family then that would be less stupid and far more logical. Maybe its because we already live together and for the most part in daily life function as a family already and the level of influence over each others lives may increase a bit, but we are not currently free of influence over each others lives… at all. That’s just silly. Hell, even my friend who did not move out into her husband’s house until they were married had more influence over her husband’s life than that article would suggest.
Dear otherJ: If you are thrown a bachelor party (or similar event) by your friends, please go see boobs if you want, or sit and play video games with a bottle of whiskey. Have fun, don’t get arrested or killed, and I cannot drag you up the stairs if you pass out somewhere random – so try not to.
