I don’t like to throw around this phrase like the cool kids on social media, but in the case of the bride who gave her new husband a lap dance at their wedding reception, it needs to be said: Keep that same energy.
Translation: if you’re lap dancing on your wedding night, then you need to be lap dancing on random Tuesday nights in January after your husband put in 12 hours while you worked from home at your ‘marketing’ job.
I know what the traditionalists are thinking when they see a husband getting a lap dance on his wedding night while Rochelle’s bridesmaids perform an act like they’re starring in a 4 a.m. BET video shot at a car wash. You’re thinking this marriage is doomed from the start and there’s no way Rochelle will keep that same energy when things like the dishes, laundry, mowing, golf league night and kids start to enter the equation.
Let’s see Rochelle break tradition at her wedding reception and then get to further analysis:

Yes, it’s a wild performance. Yes, it was most likely done as a content play that Rochelle knew would go viral and look crazy on the wedding video that’s currently being mastered in a studio.
However, this just might be the perfect play to signal to a new husband that he doesn’t need to hit the strip club with his boys. He doesn’t need to start wandering at the bars while on a business trip. This could be Rochelle telling her husband that she’s ready to give 110% to this marriage and he made the best decision of his life.
Here’s why I’m concerned with Rochelle hitting a grand slam at the wedding reception: her husband will expect this same energy five to 10 years from now and it’s just impossible to keep it up when you start throwing in exhausting school pickup line duty, indoor soccer on Mondays and Thursdays. Packing lunches. Zoom meetings to go over TikTok strategy. Instagram photoshoots. Family photoshoots in the fall where the family looks like its straight out of Instagram central casting.
Rochelle’s energy is going to drop in 2-3 years as the buzz of the wedding reception start to wear off. The average traditional marriage — that didn’t include a Twerkanator dance at the reception — lasts 8.2 years. So figure in the Twerkanator dance thing into the equation and this marriage will most likely last 4.1 years, if that.
Unless Rochelle figures out a way to keep that same energy. It’s going to be tough. It’s going to take a Cal Ripken-like streak. The ball is officially in Rochelle’s court.
Good luck, girl.
