This is a neat study. Specifically the findings that while large weddings with honeymoons relate to a longer marriage, the cost most assuredly does not. Also a longer dating period seems to be beneficial.
Major point to note :
One thing that should be noted is that there are still marriage equality casespending before conservative circuits that could rule against equality. Nevertheless, the fact that marriages are likely to begin very shortly in the states currently subject to court orders will make it very difficult for the Supreme Court to reverse course — and retroactively invalidate those marriages — in a subsequent opinion.
This is a good analysis on the decisions from scotus today. It breaks things down a bit, and explains the calculus of getting the number of states up to 30, which would be 3/5 of the states.
