Spend More Time talking About The Relationship, and Less Money on the Ring, the Wedding (and the Divorce?)
An Emory University study suggests that there is an inverse correlation between the amount a couple spends on the engagement ring and the wedding, and the chance that the marriage will last. I have my own theories about why this correlation may exist, but it does re-emphasize my "sermon" about pre-marital planning. While sitting down and talking about what you intend in the marriage, financially, emotionally, and spiritually, isn't as romantic as picking a ring, or a wedding venue, it's a lot more critical to your long-term marital happiness.
