Doomed Wedding? Get your gift back!
Aug 01, 2012 09:48PM
Weddings are glittering expressions of love and companionship to the families and friends of the betrothed as well as the bride and groom themselves—until the marriage falls apart. With 46% of marriages ending in divorce in the United States, some of the unhappy couple’s wedding guests are left frustrated at the fact that they spent their hard earned money on a gift for a relationship that was headed for implosion anyway. It seems that most of the couples would return the gifts they received after divorcing, but apparently this is not the case. Because of this staggering fault of etiquette that’s prevalent enough to warrant the birth of a successful company, WeddingGiftRefund.com was created.
This website essentially insures bad manners. For 8% of the purchase price, WeddingGiftRefund.com allows you to upload a copy of the receipt for a wedding gift and will refund the full purchase price if the wedding fails within 3 years. So, if you’re worried about your best friend’s fiancé being a dirtbag who still isn’t good enough for her, you can at least insure whatever model of toaster (or other wedding gift cliché) you buy them so that you’re not wasting any money on their doomed relationship.
Nobody really loses with this service—well, except maybe the divorcees. Should you never need a refund, you would get to watch your friend or relative love (or tolerate) the same person for the rest of his or her life (or at least longer than 3 years) while the owners of WeddingGiftRefund.com enjoy your 8% fee. And if the marriage fails—well, at least you got your money back. Now the question remains—where was this service for the Kardashian/Humphries wedding?
