Have you ever been to a party where the dinner seating assignments separated couples?
From what I understand this is not uncoomon among the higher social classes, to give seat assignments to guests that purposely separate a couple so each person is seated between people other than their date/SO. I’m not saying it doesn’t happen at all levels of the socioeconomic spectrum, just I have only heard of it among the upper classes.
Do you like the idea? Have you attended parties like this? Do you think it matters if the party has a large number of guests or not?
