Last night Fergie and Josh Duhamel had a party for a few of their friends in the run up to their wedding this Saturday. Fergie and Josh called it a joint bachelor/bachelorette party. I don't think so. I don't think you can have a joint one of those. I think what they had was just a party with a bunch of their friends. You can call it an engagement party, a rehearsal party, or the hey she doesn't always look like a man party, or whatever you want, but it was not a bachelor or bachelorette party.
I am not saying that every person needs to have one of those parties, I just think it is setting a bad example for all of the people out there getting married who wanted a night to get drunk with all their friends one last time. Oh sure, you can get drunk after marriage and hang out with your friends, but it is never the same. There is always that voice in the back of your head asking yourself if you took out the trash, is she going to be pissed that I went to a strip club and how do I explain the indecent exposure ticket. All of these things are trivial prior to getting married.
I just hope that Fergie and Josh have not started some trend now for joint parties because all the male and female strippers will go out of business and Vegas will practically shut down. Hell if you are going to have a joint party, the next thing you know you will be inviting the parents and in-laws and sitting down and watching home movies while your future mother-in-law heads back into the kitchen for her apple crumble.
