The Pleasures of Second Weddings and Getting Married Later in Life
MEL is doing a special issue for Valentine's Day focused around the theme of heartbreak. With that as my inspiration, I decided to write about the fact that, recently, I've been attending weddings of people getting married for a second time or getting married a bit later in life. I found these weddings incredibly moving -- and also just a lot of fun. It started making me wonder if, really, weddings are wasted on the young. I talked to some experts, I talked to my friends, I did a little research, and this is what I came up with.
