When You’re The Couple Who’s Been Together FOREVER But Aren’t Married

The theatrics of a new couple wedding feel silly

We go to a lot of weddings. When I was younger, and attended the wedding of a couple who’d been together for say, two years, I thought it was all so grand and perfectly appropriate for their wedding to cost $50,000. Now, seven years into a relationship, I feel differently. I see all of that lavish spending for such a young couple and think, “Meh. There are better ways to spend money. And maybe you shouldn’t even spend that much until you’ve been together at least five years—you should know this thing is going somewhere before spending like that.”
