Finnish MP Tommy Tabermann has proposed a law granting all couples a seven-day "love vacation" to keep their relationships together. I remember meeting up with some Finnish friends at a party a couple years ago and hearing them lament the drop in Finnish population (5.1 million to less than 5 million, if memory serves) -- they explained that the last growth in Finnish population had come nine months after a wintertime TV strike.
According to Tabermann, the purpose of such vacations would be to prevent relations from disintegrating and the spouses from drifting apart.
During the seven days, couples could devote themselves to each other ”both at an erotic and emotional level” and ”find their way back to the path of love in order to find the wellspring of love again”.
Some MPs suspected that the proposal might discriminate against single persons, but others said that a love vacation would be the privilege of all, even the singles and the single parents.
