I agree sharky, I definitely see that wedding frenzy and oops what comes after that..and not just in younger people. Maybe most people who get like that have a relationship that wouldn't have much staying power anyway.

The wedding thing is all part of the unrealistic fantasy, not that it's wrong to want a nice wedding, but it really goes too far for so many people. I think they turn it into an ego trip and competition.

maybe, but even when it's bad, it's still pretty good.

Very good thread. I've been thinking about this alot lately with all the crazy wedding planning going on [less than five months]. I think the problem with the wedding industry today and the idea of a wedding is that it's about a party -- flowers, food, music, etc. -- and people rarely think about what happens after that. The most serious discussions my fiance and I have had have not been about flowers or food. The serious discussions are about where we plan to live, what kind of car we could afford, what kind of family we want, what about finances. The problem with today's society is that you spend more time thinking about the wedding than the marriage. "What do you mean forever? I just wanted a party!"
I completely agree. That is a problem, there's the big day, but after that, what to have left? I think the marriage should be even more exciting than the wedding. I think of marriage as the most serious commitment two people can make, and it should be planned with that in mind.
