As foretold by the rom-coms and visually confirmed by your impossibly pretty Facebook friends, big weddings lead to happier marriages

In a study about marriages and wedded satisfaction, the University of Virginia’s National Marriage Project reports that couples who hosted over 150 guests at their nuptials had happier marriages 47 percent of the time. Couples who had fewer than 50 witnesses said they were happy in their marriage 31 percent of the time.

Popularity and adherence to ceremonial tradition win again.
