There sure are a lot of TV shows about weddings out there: Say Yes to the Dress, Married by Mom and Dad, Bridezilla, 90 Day Fiancé, etc. It seems weddings are on the brain these days. People spend thousands of dollars to put on a “good wedding.” But roughly one out of every two marriages ends in divorce. That leads me to an obvious question. What if we spent an equal amount of time, money, and effort trying to make the marriage work as we spend on impressing people with the ceremony? After all, training couples in marriage will give them the tools they need to last a lifetime, which is a lot more important than impressing our family and friends with an extravagant, expensive wedding that’s here today and gone tomorrow.
