Love and Relationships: 3 Policies Store-front Merchandise and Long-Term Relationships SHOULD have in Common

Published on Tuesday, January 4, 2011 in , , ,

Merchandise isn’t the only thing that can benefit from a little Blessed “Insurance.” Over the holidays, I bought a few electronic devices, and I happened to notice that every store I went to had some type of protection policy that I could purchase. No matter what happens in the future, I’m pretty much covered if I “opt in” to one of those service agreements.

As I weighed the pros and cons and ultimately decided to fork over a few extra bucks in exchange for a few warranties here and there, I started to wonder what kinds of guarantees should (in a perfect world) come your way when you “opt in” a relationship. So…I came up with these! :)

Satisfaction Guaranteed: Everyone wants to be satisfied, but more often than not, it’s a struggle to keep up with your significant others expectations—especially if their downright outlandish. Imagine, though, being able to enter into a relationship and not just feeling confident but KNOWING you can satisfy your partner and they will do the same for you!


Freshness Guaranteed: Spontaneity is one of the key ingredients that keeps a relationship going strong. Instead of just getting by, you’re cruising by or better yet flying by without needing to find a spark you left behind so long ago. Relationships can get too comfortable or too predictable too quickly. What if you never missed the “magic” that brought you two together in the beginning? If every single day could feel like the “honeymoon” phase you had in the beginning, who in their right mind would break away from that?


Replacement Plan/Extended Warranty: Even though the first two guarantees sound all fine and dandy, there’s no guarantee that absolutely nothing would go wrong at all. I mean, it’s almost inevitable that something will end up broken (or hurt). Feelings could be damaged. Egos could be bruised. The possibilities are endless, but instead of the “you break it, you bought it” attitude, there’s a “you break it, we can fix it” mantra. Plenty of arguments could be avoided and resentment would never get a chance to build up in the first place. No matter what the issue is, it can be fixed in a jiffy if you WANT it to.

What if the trust is broken, though? That's a huge issue to repair. Would you want that magically fixed or would you want the replacement clause to kick in ASAP? I vote for the replacement, but to each his own. Who knows? They might even have a new and improved model waiting for me in the back somewhere…lol


What can I say? Wishful thinking. I know, I know. I just had a “What if” moment today.  I tend to have very silly thoughts, but I like to share them nonetheless, though…lol, but I do wonder…

 If you could only pick one of these guarantees to take into your next relationship, which one would you choose and why? Hmm…Let the commenting begin :)
