BJ'S BLOG 01/24/13 "Bachelor Party"
Happy Friday to you, folks! Here’s a spankin’-new Group Therapy session, giving you something to think about (or avoid thinking about) before you start your weekend…
Bachelor parties are almost never a huge pothole on the road to a happy marriage.
(Sorry, I tried to type that with a straight face, but come on!)
We heard from Tom, who is facing a bachelor party dilemma, and he’s not even the groom! His buddy is getting married, and the guys have a bachelor party planned out: they’re taking the basketball-loving groom to a Trailblazers game in Portland. There are other things planned, but the game is the main event.
Not surprisingly, some of the guys want to take the groom to a strip club…but the groom doesn’t want to go. In fact, he has made it clear that he doesn’t want that to be a part of his bachelor weekend. This is causing major chaos within the ranks, of course, and that chaos has made me start questioning what I think I know about bachelor parties.
Let me ask you: Who is a bachelor party really for? Is it the groom, or his friends?
