I Just don’t understand. The whole wedding drama thing. 10-50 thousand and beyond for a wedding and honeymoon and you may not even own a home. Starving yourself,Is that one day worth all of this?[/quote]
I don’t think that men are capable of understanding how women view weddings. I have only begun planning mine with my fiance and I already know it is going to cost a lot more than the number you quoted, and I don’t even care if we have a wedding or just go to a JOP. The important thing to me is that I am married to her. To her on the other hand, this is her day to have everything the way she wants, gets to be the center of attention, and gets to show everyone she knows that she has found her perfect match. Basically, she gets to be a princess for one day, which I guess is why they go crazy planning these things and doing stuff like in the OP.[/quote]
I’ve known two couples who went through exactly this. The weddings were full of schmaltzy ever undying expressions on love eternal…both filed for divorce within six months. Best of luck man.[/quote]
I’m going to guess that the divorce had nothing to do with the wedding.[/quote]
Unless of course, they blew their savings (how many 20-somethings have tens of thousands to spare?) on one day and argued about finances in the aftermath. Money is in fact the #1 reason for divorce in the USA.
