    Couple who find themselves on shaky marital ground, worried of the impact a divorce could have on the kids, might want to try a simple technique to salvage the marriage and the bond between a kid and a two-parent household.

    Blow soap bubbles.

    At least that seems to be the message intended by today’s “Bubbles of Love Day DFW” to take place from 11 a.m.-2 p.m., at the Shops of Southlake.

    It’s part of a global event to show support for “spreading the simple message that all children need and deserve to share love with both of their parents,” according to a press release, and blowing bubbles seems to be just the ticket.

    The event brings together mayors from 10 North Texas towns, none of which are called Fort Worth or Dallas.

    Organizers expect about 200 people to show up and blow bubbles for 10 minutes in support of dual-parenting, and why do they need a three-hour event to blow 10 minutes of bubbles?

    Oh, right, 10 mayors need microphone time.
