Expensive weddings tied to divorce in recent study

The anticipation of wedding bells is something that many dating couples in Oregon dream of. Often, planning a wedding involves finding the perfect dress, arranging lodging for out-of-town guests and pairing the perfect wines, food, decor and themes. For many people, planning a wedding is both exciting and costly. 

In an interesting discovery, a recent study has linked a higher likeness of divorce happening with couples who spend exponentially more on their wedding festivities. The study surveyed the marriages of approximately 3,000 people all across the United States. Aspects of wedding planning that were considered included the cost of an engagement ring and the cost of the actual wedding ceremony. In both areas, the results showed that couples who adhered to a more affordable budget had a much higher chance of staying together for a longer period of time. 

Interestingly, the study also revealed that couples who spend more time and money planning an ideal honeymoon, actually showed a decrease in their chances of getting divorced later on. The results suggested that perhaps couples should spend more of their resources on creating a perfect honeymoon experience rather than overspending on a ring or a wedding ceremony. 

If couples are looking to get a divorce, they may benefit from the partnership of an attorney. A legal professional can help guide them through their divorce and provide support and advice along the way. They can also help guarantee that there are no missing pieces from a legal standpoint to keep clients working toward an agreement that is as beneficial as possible for their personal needs.
