Lame Or Genius Idea?

Over at Paul's a commenter named EEKer posted the following comment, and i can't decide whether it's a lame idea or a genius idea.

Years ago I was able to convince my wife that it would be really romantic to switch off for Valentines every year. One year she is the Valentine and the next I am. This was a good move. She ate it up and loves the idea. Now I'm off the hook at least every other year. This year I'm coasting!
i guess it depends on how long the relationship has been around. It would probably be a bad idea to suggest trading off years when you're still dating. But after a few years of marriage, i could see the idea having its advantages.

lame idea. he may be "off the hook" this year but what does that mean? Shes no ones valentine that year? It sounds a tad self centered on a day which should be a celebration of love not whos "off the hook" this time. If I loved someone enough to marry them they would be my valentine every year. Call me corny, I dont care.

This is a great idea because if you plan the most romantic date of your lives every other year and receive the same every other year you'll be together for 80 years like a couple I saw on the news, nightly news that is, last night.
