Whether you are a fan of “happily ever after,” or so afraid of commitment that you would teach ghosting classes (if they could find you) you obviously have a strong opinion on the hold that marriage has on our lives. For those who have already been through the marital ringer, studies show that it is pretty common to hit the bottle after a big breakup or divorce. Sound familiar? You are not alone. Divorce can lead to difficult places, just keep in mind that the more alcohol we consume, the more risk we take with bad decisions like drunk driving.
Drunk driving and other choices we make while impaired can have lasting effects on our freedom.
That said, remarriage, whether done under the influence of alcohol or while completely sober, reduces those risks. Well, remarriage reduces the amount of alcohol we drink, thus reducing the opportunities we have for those other choices, like drunk driving. Essentially, we could even go as far as to say that remarriage is the ignition interlock of the relationship world – keeping us all out of trouble by shutting down our ability to do damage to others. Keeping us home, safe, where we belong – or allowing a designated driver to control our destiny.
Alcohol can encourage our bad choices. Remarriage and ignition interlock devices both take away those choice opportunities.
If you are hesitant about another long-term relationship but want to be a safe person, perhaps a wiser investment is an ignition interlock device. Interlocks help you make smart choices while under the influence of alcohol, so you have a good chance of never putting yourself or others in danger on the roads. You also skip all types of courtroom drama, from drunk driving problems to divorce court, finding your own “happily ever after” with the safety of a device that will, quite frankly, never let you down.
