Costly weddings may lead to divorce

Couples who have spent in excess on their wedding ceremonies have a higher chance of getting a divorce according to a recent study, the New York Post reported on October 15.

In the research conducted by Emory University professors Andrew Francis and Hugo Mialon, it was found that costly weddings are linked to a far higher rate of divorce than average. Couples were a whopping 46% more likely to get a divorce if they spent $20,000 or more on their wedding celebrations. The research leaders suggested that this could be from a financial burden weighing on the beginning of the marriage. The percentage decreased dramatically for those who spent less on their weddings. The study surveyed 3,000 married couples of the opposite sex in the U.S.
