The stress of organising a big wedding can leave many couples at breaking point, as they battle to coordinate a celebration on a scale which would tax even professional event planner
筹划一场盛大的婚礼的压力之大,可使众多爱侣变为冤家怨偶。他们为这场盛典竭力协调、博弈,即便是职业婚礼策划人也会备受煎熬。
 But couples wrestling with 150-seat table plans should take heart, for new research suggests that bigger weddings predict more successful marriages.
 但是筹办一个拥有150个座位的婚礼虽然很煎熬不过应该是称心的,因为最近的调查显示婚礼预算越大以后的婚姻越幸福。
A study by the University of Virginia in the US, found that couples who had larger ceremonies had higher-quality marriages.
来自美国弗吉尼亚大学的一项研究表明拥有盛大婚礼的夫妻他们的婚姻质量更高。
 Although cynics may argue that people who can afford an opulent wedding are likely to be financially secure, and therefore happier, the researchers claim that the correlation remains even when controlling for wealth.
 虽然讽刺者会说既然能支付得起一个盛大的婚礼那必然生活无忧,因此会幸福。调查者声明说即使拥有很大一笔财富,但是只有协调才能保持长久。
They believe that marrying in front of a large number of people demonstrates greater commitment to the union while also discouraging divorce.
 他们相信在很多来宾的注视下结婚说明了他们的责任感并且能减少离婚的想法。
"There is some reason to believe that having more witnesses at a wedding may actually strengthen marital quality," said lead author Dr Galena Rhoades.
 这项研究的领导者说有很多理由可以证明盛大的婚礼可以加强婚姻质量。
"We try to keep our present attitudes and behaviours in line with our past conduct. The desire for consistency is likely enhanced by public expressions of intention.
我们保持这跟结婚前一样的愿望并且这个可以通过公众的注视来加强。
 "Weddings may foster support for the new marriage from within a couple's network of friends and family. Those who hold a formal wedding are likely to have stronger social networks in the first place."
 婚礼可以从夫妻双方的亲朋好友获得支持。那些拥有正式婚姻的夫妻可以获得更牢固的社会关系网。
The report is part of the ongoing National Marriage Project in the US which has been studying what makes marriages work since 1997.
这项报告是国家婚姻项目部正在进行的一项研究,自从1997以来他们已经开始对此进行研究。
