A study claims couples who have flashy weddings are more likely to get divorced.
Divorce Attorney Jim Mueller said it shows t least one, if not both parties, are interested in showing off that money.
“The underlying problems still come down to money and it comes down to arguments over money, and the different values that one spouse puts on money versus the other, there’s simply a difference in valuation on how parties see the money,” said Mueller.
He said it’s how you treat money and how you let it affect your life.
“It’s not money that’s the root of the evil at all. It’s truly just in how do the couple deal with it, how do they value it, and are they going to let it control them, not,” said Mueller.
Splendid Insights found couples who spent more than $30,000 on their big day were more likely to worry about impressing their guests compared to couple who spent under $10,000.The Economist magazine reports on a 2014 academic study of American marriages that found couples who planned a pricey spectacle were more likely to get divorced.
Obviously, there’s a lot of wealthy couples who have successful marriages because they talk about money, are on the same page and have the same views and values on money.The key is to tackle the issue early on in the relationship and head on, so it doesn’t come become an issue later on.
