Expensive weddings could increase the likelihood of divorce

| Oct 20, 2014 | Divorce |

For many people, their wedding day is the happiest and most important day in their life. Some look forward to their wedding for years, even before they meet their eventual spouse, and they meticulously plan the event to perfection, sparing no expense to make sure that it is everything they dreamed it would be. While having a lavish wedding could be the spectacular beginning that your marriage deserves, a new study suggests that it could also be the first nail in the coffin of your divorce.

Emory University economics professors recently conducted a survey of 3,000 adults, which indicated that there is a correlation between expensive nuptials and divorce. According to the study, spending more than $20,000 more than triples the likelihood of divorce. This is particularly shocking when you consider that the average wedding in the U.S. is approximately $30,000, well over the recommended amount.

While there was no concrete conclusion about why this correlation exists, the researchers postulate that part of the problem comes from the debts incurred to pay for the expensive wedding, something the wedding industry is in no hurry to remind its customers about. This debt places an unnecessary stress on the couple early on in their marriage, which could contribute to the increased likelihood of divorce.

Like the rest of the country, Texas residents are no strangers to extravagant weddings. While Texas residents are certainly not encouraged to skimp on their wedding, the findings of this study are worth considering for couples who are approaching marriage. If couples do find themselves divorcing for any reason, it is recommended that they speak with an attorney who can help them through the complex legal process.
