Dec 16th 2010 9:46AM First, if you don't have the money, don't spend it. Period. Second, why does anyone have to spend lots of money to begin with? And third, if you are willing to spend that much for one day, then you were expecting not to see it again anyway. The amount of money spent on the wedding does not guarantee a successful happy marriage. I, for one, had close family and friends at the county court house (or a small ceremony at a church is what most do) and we've been happily married 19 years and counting. I could have had a lavish expensive wedding offered by my parents but to me it was just one day and the marriage is something thats last a lifetime. Unfortunately, for most of my friends and family that I have watched plan and spend for the one time event, are not even together with their intended spouses anymore. And, for those who still want to plan such an elaborate event and are fortunate enough to be able to afford it, split it. A marriage is 50-50 so why can't the wedding bills be too. And, as far as suing goes, there are always two sides to the story and most lawyers always encourage a way to make money for themselves not you anyway. Money will not take away the embarrassment of being jilted and you are stupid to think it will. Get over it. Go find a better spouse-to-be. Get on with your life. That is the best revenge.

Jan 26th 2007 6:23AM I think that a mother and a father should never ever get married or live together with children if they are hateful or disrespectful to each other. What would that teach the children? I do agree that all children should have a mother and father figure in their life. Doesn't mean that they actually have to be the mother or father of the child. Any relative or close family friend the child can trust, confide in, and do things with is just as good, so that the child(ren) gets a balance of male and female role models in their upbringing. The importance of both types of role models for children is to learn from adults how to eventually be an adult.
