A member of Finland’s Parliament has proposed a novel idea for keeping his country’s couples together: grant all employees a 7-day “love vacation,” during which they can re-connect with their spouses or significant others.
The proposal is the brainchild of Tommy Tabermann, a poet and author who was recently elected to the Finnish Parliament. According to Tabermann, “During the seven days, couples could devote themselves to each other ‘both at an erotic and emotional level’ and ‘find their way back to the path of love in order to find the wellspring of love again’.”
Leave it to a poet to come up with an idea like this. Doesn’t he know that spending seven days in a row together will probably destroy more relationships than it repairs?
