Insurance tends to drive prices for anything it touches up.

Too many people spend more time planning the wedding than planning the marriage. Time to pull the plug.

The average cost of a wedding is the real story here. Crazy to think that's how much people are spending on weddings these days.

Better yet, DON'T spend so much money on your wedding. The "big day" will be over in a flash, and you will miss the $25,000 - 50,000 later. If you keep it small (only close friends and family) and get food from local restaurants/bakeries you enjoy rather than hotels and special wedding businesses, you will both have a less stressful time and get to start out your marriage without huge bills to pay. The goal is to have a good future together, right? Plan for that future rather than breaking the bank with a luxury wedding.

So will they do it like life insurance and have couples go through a wedding exam before they write any coverage? Maybe at the altar the minister can offer divorce insurance. Kind of like an getting an extended warranty on the marriage.

Forget the expensive rings too. They are a RIP-OFF.

It's insane to spend that much money on an hour long ceremony, dresses that cost thousands that will never be worn again and rot away in mothballs, etc. If you're gonna blow that much money, do it on the honeymoon and enjoy it!
