Finland: A Plan for ‘Love Vacations’ – New York Times

A proposed bill before Parliament would grant Finnish workers, already entitled to 25 paid days of vacation a year and as many as 10 paid public holidays, one more week of “love vacation” to reduce, its sponsor said, a high divorce rate and revive passion in a population whose workdays are growing longer. The measure would allow Finns to connect “on an erotic as well as an emotional level,” Tommy Tabermann, a poet, actor and member of the Social Democrats, said in a speech introducing the measure last month.

Wow, I’d like a love vacation! Would you take one with me?
