Badrutt’s Palace Hotel, in St. Moritz, Switzerland has launched a groom bootcamp that “… tests the eligibility and improves the housekeeping skills of a modern-day husband.” According to the press release, the hotel’s Licence to Wed package puts the husband-to-be through a variety of challenges to prepare him for married life, including a washing and ironing test, a gentleman’s etiquette course and a culinary class with the executive chef.

Okay, it’s not as bad as a Hello Kitty wedding. But it still involves ironing. On vacation.

Fortunately there’s light at the end of the tunnel.
