Marriage is one of the top ten stressors that a person can experience in their life — so it should come as no surprise that tensions run high around the time of the big day. The amount of decision-making surrounding the ceremony is enough to cause some serious anxiety, not to mention the sticker shock that inevitably accompanies wedding-related expenditures. (The average vendor charges anywhere from 28-37% more for a wedding reception as opposed to a standard party.)
As such, many couples find themselves prone to arguments in the days and weeks leading up to their wedding. Whether it’s simply the stress, or the frightening realization that they’re legally bound together until death or divorce, the bickering is likely to increase.
A handful of couples recently took to Whisper to confess the arguments that they had with their significant others right before the wedding day. Some of them are silly (like disagreeing over whether or not to play the Star Wars theme as the bride walks down the aisle), while others seem indicative of larger issues (such as the groom becoming unreasonably jealous of his best man). Either way, it’s clear: marriage is definitely not for the faint of heart — and it’s not for anybody lacking emotional maturity, either.
