True story: About ten years ago some close friends were on the verge of divorce. Already living separately, their lives were full of stress over work, debts and children. I gave them my timeshare week to use in St. Maarten without the children. They each had their own bedroom, but by the time their week was up only one bedroom was needed.
Ten years later - they are still together, their youngest child is finishing college, and well... they are almost debt free.
For many of us who own a timeshare, we have known that the annual vacation is a key element in keeping sane and happy. This story shows that we can use it to help our friends as well.
