Is an expensive wedding the beginning of the road to divorce?

Love is a phenomenon that intrigues many people. Just as intriguing is the possibility that a love once believed to last a life time comes to an end through divorce. Many studies are conducted on the number of dissolved marriages, ages of divorce individuals and causes for the decision to end relationships.

New York residents may be interested in a recent study that looked at the connection between the amount of money spent on engagement rings and weddings and their impacts on divorce. Apparently, the study utilized over 3,100 heterosexual individuals in the United States and asked various lifestyle-related questions. One of the results of the study showed that individuals who spent anywhere from $2,000 to $4,000 on a engagement ring had a 1.3 times greater chance of facing divorce than those who spent less than $2,000.

When it came to wedding costs, men who spent under $1,000 on a wedding were considerably less likely to get divorced than men who spent $5,000 to $10,000 on tying the knot. Additionally, women whose weddings exceeded $20,000 were 1.6 times more likely to face divorce. Of course, costs are not the only issues to look out for. Some individuals who indicated that their spouses' looks played a major role in the decision to marry also faced the potential for a shorter marriage.

While these statistics may have some individuals reconsidering their marriage costs, it is important to remember that no one factor can determine whether a marriage will end in divorce. New York residents who choose to dissolve their marriages often have a number of personal reasons for doing so. Whatever the reason may be, preparing for the legal steps ahead can often prove beneficial during this potentially difficult time.
