  • Fort Lauderdale, FL (1888PressRelease) May 23, 2014 - The Forbes Living TV show plans to take an in-depth look at what happens when a pending nuptial suddenly seems like a bad idea. What do you do when the thought of a lifetime together starts to look more like a life sentence? Emotions are running high at this time, so it's important to find a calm place and some quiet time to decide if this is going to happen or not. The important thing is not to have your eye on the events planned over the next few weeks or months, but keep in mind you're talking about a commitment that will theoretically last years or decades.

    Even something as simple as dropping ushers or bridesmaids from the list can be fraught with ill feelings that can turn out to leave permanent scars on relationships, as Forbes Living will reveal. True escape will not be achieved without some financial setbacks. Most of the elements that go into a wedding ceremony and reception dinner come from outside vendors who require cash deposits, and for precisely this reason. The businesses involved need to cover their losses in the event of any cancellations. And, of course, these deposits are usually, contractually, not refundable. One bride-to-be-no-more reported her family lost $10,000 in deposits. You can plead with suppliers to return deposits, but most will not and they really have no legal mandate to do so.

    All the planning and the deposits serve to emotionally and financially lock the couple in to their promise of making vows to each other on the happy day. But what is vital is for the couple themselves to have a clear vision of what lies ahead for them in either case. It's their lives they're betting with, and they must decide if that's worth a temporary (or even permanent) loss of face. Above all, most people agree that the pain and financial loss incurred from canceling a wedding is far less than that of enduring and ending a bad marriage.
