Did You Know Hallmark Has ‘Troubled Relationship’ Cards?by Chiara Atik on May 22, 2013
This is news to us, but apparently, Hallmark has been selling cards under the “Troubled Relationship” category since 2008. Sentiments include “It’s Not Perfect, But It’s Ours,” and “I Wish I Could Go Back,” — because nothing says “Sorry I cheated” better than Hallmark. If your marriage is in trouble, you might consider giving your wife an “Unexpected Turns” Anniversary Card. (“Though this anniversary may come at a time when things are uncertain, your love will give you strength and see you through.”)
Not to miss out on an opportunity for card-giving, the greeting card company is also selling cards geared towards long-distance relationships. (Wish I May, Wish I Might, Be Where You Are Tonight. Love, Chad.)
I’m not going to rail on this too much, because a cheesy mass-printed card is probably better than no card at all. But if your relationship is seriously that troubled, you better get some couples’ therapy along with that $3.49 card. Or at the very least, a serious box of chocolate.
