@HisIrishPrincess:  Hah!  I hear you.  We both work, we both received the gifts, we both have readable handwriting so I felt very strongly we both ought to write to our guests.  (I’ve gotten into many long extended debates with a friend who feels the wife ought to because “the gifts are really for her.”  My feminist mentality is beyond horrified by that outdated expectation, and if he wants to eat any food I’m nice enough to prepare on our gifted equipment off our gifted dishes, he can write to say thanks too.  My friend and I agreed for the sake of the friendship to not discuss it anymore…)  Where did this line in the sand get me?  I wrote half of his thank yous and he still (3+ months later) hasn’t written two of his groomsmen or his mom.  At least one of the groomsmen only gave us the gift two weeks ago.

I simply don’t understand excuses not to even sign a name.

I signed both of our names on our thank you cards. It made it a lot easier and quicker.
