Oh, yes. There is a massive disconnect between Wedding and Marriage. As you said, the wedding industry is gigantic and there several cable TV shows on 24/7 about weddings.

But marriage is a joke. Nobody takes it seriously. Partners are as replaceable as old cars and infidelity is practically expected (the most common response to Tiger Woods' behaviour is, "so what? all men cheat.")

It would be laughable if it wasn't so destructive. Nobody is entitled to a spouse, but many act like they are - and entitled to torment them if they want. If you want to date around, then STAY SINGLE. Problem solved.
