General Trends in Weddingalia

Wedding-related, if not our wedding related: Father Jim Tucker posts some interesting thoughts on the apparently growing trend of baptized Catholics having non-Catholic weddings.

So, I really don't feel threatened by the growing proportion of these do-it-yourself weddings. In fact, I welcome their existence because they give attractive options to people who aren't interested in all the Catholic obligations that come with a Catholic marriage. Any Catholic who seriously considers those non-traditional weddings as a serious possibility for his or her own wedding probably isn't yet ready for the Sacrament of Matrimony to begin with.
