    This is a brilliantly informative post, but it does make me sad because I’m in the weddings business, helping couples plan their big day. I’m not sure what the divorce rate in the UK is but none of the couples I’ve ever worked with have given the impression that they are going into marriage light-heartedly, so when it breaks down, it must be even more of a shock
