Greeting Cards Specifically for Fianceés Seem Non-Existent
There are two types of people in this world: those who love greeting cards and those who despise them.
For the longest time, I was stuck somewhere in the middle until the day I asked my better half to marry me.
That's when I joined Team Nope.
After searching high and low for the perfect card to give to my future wife recently, I was dumbfounded to see no category for "fiancée". Sure, there are engagement cards and "Congrats, happy couple" cards, but nothing that screams "to my fiancée."
Valentine's Day is right around the corner and I'm saddened that neither CVS, Rite Aid, nor Walgreens carry any cards for this relationship. Trust me, I've searched high and low across the SouthCoast. I even checked out Dollar Tree and Save-A-Lot in New Bedford and had no luck during this past holiday season.
Even CVS.com couldn't help me find the perfect card for the love of my life.
I'm not asking for much and I understand that the category alone is a little niche considering the average length of engagement is around 16 months, according to The Knot. However, none of that should matter, considering I found special cards for boyfriends, girlfriends and even pastors.
While you can find the cards I'm talking about online, that doesn't help last-minute buyers like me.
Thank God my fiancéehand doesn't mind handmade cards. Store-bought cards are expensive these days anyway, but that's a topic for another day.
