At this moment in history the chances of your marriage ending in a divorce are, well, they’re not good. Pretty much you’re rolling the dice anytime you walk down the aisle. Sure, it’s the happiest day of your life, but looming somewhere down the line is the stark reality that divorce could also very likely be in your future.

However, if you live in certain cities or countries that impending divorce might not happen for many years to come! Good news! While in other places one has to wonder why they even bother with weddings at all. They should just split all their property on day one and move on. It’d be so much simpler.
