Seven Days of Love


Published March 26, 2008 at 12:53 p.m.

I was just reading Paula's article on Finland, the "most livable" place on earth. Those Finns have it good! Besides four weeks of paid vacation and 14 paid public holidays — yes, for everyone — their Prime Minister recently proposed a law that would add a seven day "love vacation" to their existing vacation time.

"According to Tabermann, the purpose of such vacations would be to prevent relations from disintegrating and the spouses from drifting apart.
     During the seven days, couples could devote themselves to each other”both at an erotic and emotional level” and ”find their way back to thepath of love in order to find the wellspring of love again”."

That is so cool. Sign me up.
