i didn't even know it was "wedding season". I agree with Peter; the best time to get married is whenever the happy couple decides, although I do love the summer. I guess it would be a great chance to meet people & not just possible mates. We need to all learn to be truly happy for the happiness of others. Congrats and blessings to all of you who have found your soulmate & are getting married. Our time will come if it's God's will :)

The timing of a wedding may be reserved for the young. At my age of 68 having to wait for a season is only wasting time you could be with the one you love. There is no season for birth, love, nor death. Cherish your time on this earth loving, laughing, and giving to others. The only season to marry is the day/date you select. Enjoy!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Whether it's a family member, a friend or anyone out there having or planning a wedding I'm excited for them. It's such a joyous occasion and you get to meet and greet old friends and family and make new ones. I can't wait to find my prince charming so I can plan my own wedding ... much hope.

I really don't care. i think after a certain age these things are less important. My 21 yr/o daughter watches a reality show about wedding consultants competing , and another with obnoxious bride-zillas picking out ridiculously priced wedding gowns.I'd much rather use the funds they spend on a wedding dress for a down-payment on a new home . O, to be rich and famous ,and an airhead!! Seems much too self-indulgent to me...,,, Somehow we've gotten away from the sanctity of marriage as sacramental.

I find it amusing that not any of the "choices" resemble any thing that I thought! First, so far this year there are no up coming weddings...There was one April 15th, and that one oddly amused me, after 11 years my former husband who said he would NEVER marry again got married, and after a very lengthy "courtship" total time less than 6 months and there are teen age children moved in with him, he hasn't had that in 12 years!!!!!! Finally I could laugh and smile and say, hey, good luck to ya! But thats all that's going on on the wedding front so far!

I am always happy to attend weddings, to share in the enjoyment of a new life for a couple. I support marriage and am happy to see others make that committment. Additionally, everybody is on their best behavior and appearance, so can be a good opportunity to meet someone.

Have you honestly looked at American society? you don't have to be to the left or to the right to know this country's head down the wrong path. Why do you think so many people are registering themselves as independents? I believe in Marriage, but honestly I am scared to death of ever having to marry someone(again) and I fear for my son's generation has well. What a mess!

It appears from the data that the respondants are not terribly focused on marriage in their future. Or possibly they have accepted and find serenity in single life.....at least for now. I believe acceptance of God's plan for me right now is the path of least resistance and provides enough happiness.

MaryBeth- I am so sorry for your loss. I am a widow, too,and was blessed with a wonderful husband and my best friend. The first wedding I went to alone felt really wierd, but after a few, I have adjusted. Usually I find out who else is going, and ask ahead of time if they mind me sitting with them. I am happy for all those who find their soulmate, their partner and friend, and get married. I am so grateful to have had that for so many years-and who knows, maybe I will meet a wonderful guy and get married again- you never know!

I am widowed and have not been to a wedding since I have become widowed. I think it's great when someone has found their soulmate and they love each other so much that they get married. I feel neutral about it, a touch sad that I lost my dear husband -- I had a fabulous marriage and we were just starting a family when he died.

Well, I have about 8 friends getting married in the next few months but oddly enough I'm not dreading the "wedding season." Most of them I won't be able to go to but even the ones that I will attend... it doesn't bother me all that much. Free food and good cake! :)
