Movie Wars

Posted by Michele Olson

The economy went in the dumper and so did your couples night out at the movies. So what does any red blooded American couple do?

You stay in and rent!

The New York Times ran a pretty funny article on Sunday about the dilemma that is created when couples share a “queue”, the computer list of which films will arrive next in the mail, after those at home are returned with the company NetFlix.

What used to be sorted out in a video aisle in a store, the article points out, is now not discussed as couples go into their queue separately. Because the queue is shared, couples have been known to go into their request area and move their particular movie choice up to the top.

According to the story, there has been one “Netflix divorce” where the couple just decided to create two separate accounts. Read the article and comment on how you and your loved one decide which movie to order. Have you experienced this little red envelope stressor on your relationship?
