The author, Mr. Barnes, is just venting about social burnout — y’know, when you go to a million weddings/showers/graduations and just can’t stand the thought of yet ANOTHER Proud Parent speech or kitchy-cute cocktail.

Frankly, I think it’s a good sign: if we’re able to treat ALL weddings EQUALLY, we can b!tch about them… equally.

I think it’s actually positive…that there are so many weddings people are like, omg another one????  When something becomes part of the norm, it makes it easier for everyone to accept.

Yeah, I mean I get where the guy is coming from – I’m starting to burn out on weddings myself – but that really is a bummer (for those getting married). It’s not their fault we’ve all done this with our straight friends already 🙁

I agree with PP though – what a cool thing to be burnt out on! It’s about time 🙂

I feel that way about all of my hetero friends getting married because it’s pretty much been 2-3 per year lately but that’s because we’ve all hit the “marriageble” age.  I feel the same way about so many of my friends having babies too.  Maybe it’s because it makes me feel old.

@peachacid:  I second the final comment. “When something becomes part of the norm, it makes it easier for everyone to accept.”
