BUENOS AIRES (Reuters) - Fed up with spending too many weekends going to weddings, an Argentine couple took out a paid announcement on the social pages of a major newspaper expressing their desire for some social neglect.
"We thank you ahead of time for understanding this petition, which is due to our saturated social calendar," read the ad in La Nacion.
Adolfo Caballero, 66, told a La Nacion reporter the flood of invitations came from the children of his dozens of cousins, friends from his club, and clients of his law firm.
Argentine weddings are typically drawn-out affairs and Caballero said they take 12 hours out of most of his weekends, including long drives to and from the countryside, where it is currently fashionable to get married.
"It's fun for youngsters who want to dance until 5 a.m. ... but the next day I'm tired and I can't move when I want to go play tennis," Caballero said.

In fact, I was fed up with spending many weekends going to weddings when I was at 20's and early 30's.
It was tough to show my smile to newly wed couples despite that I thought it was troublesome at heart.
On top of that, it was fine when those who got married were classmates or colleagues around the same age, however, as I grew older, those who got married got to be younger couples, to whom I had to pay considerable amount of money while I had gotten any…

Now that I became 40, most friends whether they were around the same age or younger, the marriage rush was over. And I am not invited to any weddings these days.
Some invitation is for their 2nd (or more) marriage, though I got never done.

I want to say to the Argentine couple not to break loose.
I have been left alone while I have never taken out a paid announcement on the social pages of a major newspaper…
