Well, our headline is a paraphrase of CNN’s ~ but did you catch their article this fall? A new study found that couples who spend less on their wedding have longer-lasting marriages than those who are not so frugal.
The paper, published by two professors of economics at Emory University did not research the whys but guessed at some:
“It could be that the type of couples who have a … (cheap wedding) are the type that are a perfect match for each other,” said Professor Hugo M. Mialon, co-author of the study with Andrew M. Francis.
“Or it could be that having an inexpensive wedding relieves young couples of financial burdens that may strain their marriage,” he added.
