Over-the-phone marriage is official according to court

Weddings can take a variety of forms; some are intimate, whereas others have hundreds of guests. Massachusetts residents have probably attended many types of weddings. Though more rare, some weddings even occur over the telephone. This method of entering a marriage may not be very common, but a Maryland court ruled recently that it is just as valid as an in-person ceremony.

Cold feet before marriages and divorces

A recent study indicates that when brides or grooms have doubts about getting married, but marry anyway, their marriages end in divorce more often. In particular, the level of doubt (or confidence) of brides in the study was correlated with a future divorce. The study reports that "women who experienced pre-marriage jitters were two-and-a-half times more likely to divorce four years later than women who were confident about getting married."

Young Americans are optimistic about marriage: Should they be?

Every year, thousands of Americans prepare in excitement for the day they will commit to spending the rest of their lives with their partner. Many of these people are young, and according to a recent study, very optimistic about marriage. This recent study reports that 86 percent of 18 to 29 year olds polled expect their marriages to last forever. The survey's author explains that the remaining 16 percent polled likely do not plan to marry.
