Cost of wedding may influence chances of divorce

A recent study done by economic professors at Emory University suggested that couples who opt for a more affordable wedding are more likely to stay together than their counterparts who celebrated a more lavish union, KTRE 9 reported on January 11.

According to the study, couples whose weddings cost more than $20,000 are 3.5 times more likely to file for divorce from each other than those whose weddings cost less. The researches assessed data relating to 3,000 people in the U.S. This may be due to an increased financial burden on the newly wed couple.
