Rating helpful answers is nice, but saying thanks can be even nicer.
Do you reckon it's 2 or 3 years till you're going to need this?

I'm not married, don't even have a girlfriend, but two days off is two days off.
You can get married for free on Mondays.
So Monday morning, go to city hall, get married for free, enjoy two days off
How does taking up on a free offer make me cheap?
Of course I'd have to find a girl who doesn't want a big fancy wedding first
get married just for 2 days off, even without the big wedding what is the cost (consider TCO) compared to 2 days unpaid leave?
Even if it's 2 days a year, 2 days a month, the unpaid leave is still the cheaper option.
heck, runny nose go and see the doc (can claim back the doc fees too) (- most if you look sick enough on a Thursday will give 2 days.)
You seem to have a strong opinion about this.
Perhaps we can get married (not with each other) and discuss this over our two days off?
At this point I'm not even sure if I'll ever get married.
Maybe to please my future girlfriend, although I certainly hope not.
I'll never get marriage, spend weeks planning the whole thing, be at the center of attention for a whole day, take pictures in fancy clothes (and I'm not even a fan of wedding dresses), invite people you don't like but somehow must invite, and pay a king's ransom for it all.
Added value: absolutely nothing
Unless you get married for free and take the two days off
You get some tax deductions (why don't I get those as a single, isn't my life without the love of my life already miserable enough!?) and some legalities are automatically arranged (like inheritance).
Until you change your mind that is, in which case it's all very difficult and expensive to roll back.
