For many, the most important day of their life is the day they unite in marriage with the person they love, many try in that day to be special and that the celebration be as they dream it, but if we are realistic the wedding dream can cost thousands and thousands, a large amount of money that perhaps most don’t have at that time.
A recent study has shown that those who invested between $5,000 and $20,000 at their wedding have 5% more chance of losing their partner.
Which is the reason? Having no such amount of money to make the wedding of their dreams, many couples opt for loans, when finally the party takes place there are all the debts that have to be covered, which generates great stress to both, sometimes more to one that to another.
Having the wedding as desired generates a large sum of money and recent study has revealed that the more expensive the wedding, the more likely it is that the marriage lasts less, so if you are otherwise a thrifty person who invests only enough and What is in your hands at the celebration, your marriage could last many, many years.
Andrew Francis-Tan and Hugo M. Mialon lead the study, both are professors of economics and revealed some characteristics that increase the chances of an expensive wedding leading to a faster divorce.
For this investigation, 3000 married and divorced people were surveyed who said an approximate cost of their wedding and ring, since both factors play a very important role in the duration of the marriage, according to Andrew and Hugo.
Those who spent between $ 500 and $ 2,000 at the ceremony are about 1.3 times less likely that their marriage will end soon.
However, those who spent between $5,000 and $20,000, have a 5% more chance of ending up in divorce.
Spending between $ 3,000 and $ 5,000 on an engagement ring also has the 1.3 times greater chance of ending up in a divorce compared to spending $ 500 to $ 2,000.
The leaders of that study stressed that what doesn’t impact the duration of the marriage is the honeymoon and that the physical attraction between the couple is the most important factor in the duration of the marriage.
It is suggested that the intention of a divorce can start with the stress generated by the accounts and the debts that are given for making the dream wedding a reality that is always very expensive.
It is worth mentioning that nothing like love, understanding, tolerance and respect is better for a long and healthy relationship.
