IF YOU ARE THE FUTURE BREADWINNER YOU SHOULD BE THE PRESENT DAY MARRIAGE FINANCIER

The bride and her parents shouldn't be the burden barriers of a wedding regardless of tradition. If the groom can't share the cost he's not worth the marriage.

Tradition has the Bride and family pay for floral arrangements for the ceremony and reception, plus bouquets and corsages for bridesmaids and flower girls.

Traditionally, the parents of the groom take care of a few of the expenses including: the marriage license, officiant's fee, corsages, boutonnieres, the bride's bouquet, groomsmen gifts, liquor, and the reception DJ, band or other musical entertainment. And the bride's parents sweep-up the expenses behind everything else. This is called tradition the handing down of statements, beliefs, legends, customs, information, etc., from generation to generation, especially by word of mouth or by practice.

Well, tradition this....., the bride should never be caught holding the bag for a wedding and neither the groom. Because if something goes terribly wrong and the wedding is called off all should suffer from the financial consequences. When I got married 38 years ago I took care of everything because I was capable of doing it. Not my family but me, because it was my first test for being responsible. I was the future breadwinner therefore I should be the present day marriage financier. It is about character, accomplishments, and Comradery during the marriage process and in particularly in the .

It has to be considered from the time there is a proposal that a marriage will not be 50/50. Sometimes it can be 60/40 or 70/30 and being that may be the case with the bride or groom's money because of other responsibilities, job, family or bank account, love should accept that to a point. Burdens don't last always and there should be an opportunity for that bride or groom to turn that 30% ratio into a viable resource in support of the marriage dreams.

If you cannot share the present burdens how can you share future dreams.
