Do you think couples are more or less likely to stay together after marriage?

I think married couples will be more likely to work on their relationship, since it's not so easy to just quit it.

I think that when over half of marriages end in divorce (first time marriages). It usually means that more then half the time they will end in divorce.

im not sure. theres no statistics for just breaking up.

i'd say married couples, since it is more complicated go quit, so they are more likely to want to work it out (or they feel more obligated to). Of course, there are few/no reliable statistics to compare divorce rates to.
And can anyone tell me what hx3iszgame is talking about?

what if you have a wedding that is virtually no cost?

Yes, divorcing is more complicated then splitting up.

Divorce is a pretty detailed thing with court, lawyers, paperwork, etc. It's best for a couple to separate instead.

i think it matters on how they are matched before the wedding

"...all the stress of paying for the wedding." Wow, ya know its true love when you get a divorce over money.

I have to imagine there is a much higher rate of people who get married staying together than people who don't get married staying together. Most, if not all, industrial cultures in the world today have some form of marriage, and it's the standard way people express their intentions of making a life-long commitment to each other.

I can't imagine the man who inspired this question was not exaggerating, and I can't believe this question was approved.

It really depends on the couple.

Financial problems are the number one reason that couples get divorced, contrary to popular belief love "isn't" all you need.

That being said, nobody gets divorced because of the cost of getting married, but going into debt over a wedding could definitely be a contributing factor. Especially when you consider how expensive the average wedding is these days, a lot of weddings cost more money than a new car.

I think they're more likely, I mean it's a lot more work to split up once you're married as opposed to not having that legal status.

I think he's saying if we don't succeed, we run the risk of failure.

married couples proberally stay together more, but are less happy, it's very easy to take your relationship for granted when you're married.
13 yrs ago, 10 mos ago - Thursday 7/26/07 - 2:36:31 AM EST (GMT-5)
Less likely, because there is so much stress placed on appearing to have a perfect marriage and a lot of people expect everyone to start popping out babies after they get married. Some people aren't into that. Not to mention joint checking accounts, pissed off wives that chase their husbands around with chainsaws when they forget their anniversary, and women always expecting their husbands to be home early from work.

it just depends on the couple, paying off the wedding i dont think would have anything to do with it, but ive never been in the situation so i wouldnt know, just seems like a stupid reason

If I ever went crazy and married someone, I would have a really, really small wedding that required almost no planning and was really cheap. And I would get a really cheap dress, because it's such a horrible rip off to pay that much for a wedding dress.

My wedding cost alittle over $10,000 for 30 people (weddings in japan are expensive) but my wife deserved it so I worked my a*se off and got it done. I find it hard to believe people can't scrape together a couple of hundred or even $2000 over the course of a year (with some exceptions of course).
