Dear 100 Hour Board,
Why do some people think that they need to bring a date to weddings? I'm referring to girls (maybe guys do this too, I don't know) on Mutual that say they need a date to a a wedding. Why do they need a +1 if they aren't dating someone?
Maybe they bring a date so that great aunt Myrta won't pester them about why they're still single? Maybe there are other cultural forces at hand, but that's a good reason in my book.
Especially since Mormons tend to marry so young, it can feel overwhelming going to the weddings of your friends and family if you're still single. Sometimes at least having a date helps to stave off the potential loneliness.
My time is the most valuable thing I have. If I have to go to a wedding (which I only hate a little bit) and can simultaneously be on a date (which I only hate a little bit,) I will be making double use of my time. Now, if I could just figure out a way to do homework on said wedding date it would almost be exactly like I got to stay home. So easy.
Just going to say that everybody needs a date to have a wedding.
