Premier Radio News reports – Couples who spend more on their weddings and engagement rings are more likely to see their nuptials end in divorce.
US researchers surveyed 3,000 American adults who had once been married for more than 13 years and found that men who spent between $2,000 and $4,000 (£1,244 and £2,488) on an engagement ring were 1.3 times more likely to get divorced than those who spent between $500 (£311) and $2,000 (£1,244).
However, the study also found that spending less than $500 on the ring also correlated with higher divorce rates.
The same also goes for wedding costs. Spending more than $20,000 (£12,444) on a wedding was linked to significantly higher divorce rates than those who spent between $5,000 and $10,000 (£3,111 and £6,222).

WHAT DO YOU THINK?- We have all sinned and deserve God's judgment. God, the Father, sent His only Son to satisfy that judgment for those who believe in Him. Jesus, the creator and eternal Son of God, who lived a sinless life, loves us so much that He died for our sins, taking the punishment that we deserve, was buried, and rose from the dead according to the Bible. If you truly believe and trust this in your heart, receiving Jesus alone as your Savior, declaring, "Jesus is Lord," you will be saved from judgment and spend eternity with God in heaven.
