A Proposal

In a time with political promises and suggestions of almost every kind in Denmark, there is one that I believe I haven’t heard, so I will offer it here.

An unrestricted, government-funded 2-3 weeks of holiday should be offered to anyone getting married or initiating a relationship of any kind.

Here’s the deal: Being currently two weeks into a relationship with, arguably, the love of my life, I am finding that trivial undertakings such as working or studying matter surprisingly little. Eventually this may wear off, but for the time being, it is difficult to be worried about, well, anything. How do other people do this?

  1. I suggest we add something to your proposal,

    An unrestricted, government-funded 2-3 weeks of holiday should be offered to anyone getting married or initiating a relationship of any kind or just planning to initiate a relationship.

  2. @Lars: Man må yde, før man kan nyde…😉

    (anyone want to translate that, feel free)

  3. Or in the words of H.W. Longfellow: “Learn to labor and to wait.”
