Bride and Groom Priorities

We couldn’t believe it when our son told us his friend was getting a divorce.  He had only been married a few years.  I recall him telling us how ugirl comfortednbelievably amazing the wedding was.  No expense was spared.  “He really loved her,” our son explained.

With the average cost of weddings today nearing $35,000, I can’t but wonder where are these couple’s priorities?  A wedding is a day but a marriage is suppose to last a lifetime.  How much better would it had been if they had  put as much time and effort into preparing for a marriage instead of a wedding.  My heart breaks because I believe if couples would get pre-marital education, there would be less and less of these type of divorces.
