Adultery Cards?!?

The divorce rate is America is above 50%. That's fucking SAD, kids. Too many people jumping into marriage (and usually too early) before they've seen life and lived a little, and they end up splitting. Seems to me, the best idea would be to encourage a little more thought going into this kind of bond...but in a world where we merely laugh at stars like Britney Spears marrying one guy for 55 hours and then marrying another who is not only with someone but who has a kid with them and another about to drop, it's no surprise that marriage is looked upon with such little reverence.

Still, I can't be alone in thinking that these cards are just a bad call. The "Secret Lover Collection" supposedly fills a niche: those people that are in an affair, and want to express their feelings.

Excuse me, but isn't a "secret lover" not secret anymore when you start doing something like this? Regardless, is it a good idea to promote adultery this way? The creator says she's not condoning anything, that people can make their own choices, she's just identifying a market and making a profit. Well, bully for you, does this mean it'd be OK to sell paedophilic birthday cards? "Happy 8th birthday! Your present in in my pants..." hey, no judgement, just identifying another niche...sheesh.

On top of that...christ, read some of those cards. I've rarely seen anything so desperate sounding.
  • All my life I have had this emptiness inside, like a part of me was missing and I was incomplete...
    And now I can't imagine my life without you...Even if I have to share you.
  • Not being able to be with you all of the time is difficult. And even though I want you all to myself, I understand that you are not mine completely and I have to share you.
Now, call me crazy, but this seems like a good time to re-evaluate what you're doing.
